Sally Jo is having issues with peeing and or BMing when we take her out. For the most part she won't do either. We are taking her out approx, 3 to 4 X's daily. Sometimes she pee's, but most of the time she won't have a BM but 1 time every other day. We stand out there forever. She really needs to pee when we take her out! She had not had any accidents (except for the submissive peeing when she wakes up in the morning) until last night. I had the boys take her out around 8:45p.m. They came in only 5-10 mins later,and said she wouldn't do anything. About and hour later we found that she used the bathroom in the office. In the mornings we stopped talking to her until she went out, and that helped. But now she holds her pee even in the morning. I know she has to go, but she will hold it and then needs to be taken back out an hour later. The only other time she pee'd was while were gone one time about 1 week ago. Luckily in the ktichen not on carpet.
She is also not eating when we feed her. She waits, which is not helping. She has not created a system.
I am afraid to let her roam the house.
One last note, she met some of the neighborhhod dogs yesturday, and showed her teeth and low growled. I know she's afraid, but what do I do to get her used to our friends family and dogs. She is so afraid. My neighbors don't listen either. They won't wait unitl she is ready they just keep approaching her with a happy voice mind you, but I keep telling them to give her time. I guess my probelm is that they bring their dogs to the bus stop everyday, which is my driveway, and I wish they wouldn't. I would like my dog to be a peace while sitting in her yard. They let their new puppy just act wild, and crazy. All the puppy wants to do is get near Sally, and All I think Sally wants is to be left alone! hahaha..How do I politly say, leave your dogs at home. One last point. They other neighbor lets their dog, pee and poop in our yard. They clean up the poop, while taking out half the grass at the same time. I don't want the dog the kill the grass in our yard, and we have asked several times and they don't care. We make Sally go in the same area in our back yard. Besides I don't want to have to watch where I step in my front yard! They never clean the poop up in their yard. Gross!
Also she did the same thing to our youngest last night. He was doing nothing, just sitting near her. We have mad sure they are never alone together, because she is so new to us. Wow is she ever a very shy girl.
I guess I'll have to keep Sally in every morning while at the bus stop, again in MY Driveway!
