I'm going Up the wall!!
Hi- I'm new around here.. but I have a problem. I just got a Westie puppy 4 days ago and for the first 3 days, we spoiled her. She stayed with my parents and I all day, and followed us around all the time. At night she slept beside my bed, tethered up on a rubber mat. She didn't go pee throughtout the night by the 2nd night. But on the 3rd day, we learned that she should have a special room, all for her, and she should stay there most of the day and all night, until she gets old enough not to pee on the floor during the day. We've had her in her own room for a night and half a day now. She's very good about going pee, she only goes on the paper in her room, but the problem is, is that she BARKS. Non stop. It's driving us crazy! I'm not sure if we're doing it right having her in her own room, or if we were doing it right before. When she followed us around for the first 3 days, we never had any time to ourselves, we always had to cater her needs. But now it's even worse with her barking!! This paragraph is very long, and probably hard to understand - but PLEASE help.
