How do we remove coton de tulear from our bedroom?
Frida is 15 weeks - a very happy and outgoing puppy. She's been socializing with me from the very beginning and is always happy to see all kinds of different people, dogs, riding in the car or bus. Overall, she's very mild at heart and always wants to play.
When we got her at 8 weeks, she slept in her doggy bed beside our bed, getting her to sleep with our hand in her crate. So over the weeks I've been moving her bed longer and longer away from our bed, because we'd like eventually to be able to shut the bedroom door and let her sleep in the living room. We miss our privacy :)
So now I've separated the bedroom from the living room with a small fence. She can still see us and her bed is just on the other side.
So normally it's not a problem if I pat the bed telling her: "Here Frida, blanket, good night". If she's tired she'll go in at once and sleep, if she's not, she starts whining, growling, and eventually barking until I put my hand out and I can get her to sleep and calm down.
My question is, we'd really like her to be able to sleep in her own bed in the living room with a closed door (the door is not closed now). How is the best way to reach this goal where we're at now?
I really hope you can help!
