    Default Skip...

    Well skip came home yesterday. She is a kelpie. We got her from a farmer. She was from a oops litter..

    Boss is being really good with her. I don't trust him enough yet to be left alone with her. Also she is still too litte for him to play with her..

    First night didn't go too well.. I put her in the bathroom to sleep. I put her in there with her bed, a Teddy and some water. She did right until
    boss would bark at something and she would wake up and bark and howl. She howled for 2 hours. Then boss would bark at her. So to stop the noise I brought skip into our room and put her on bed and she went straight to sleep and boss went outside cos he always goes outside around 4am every morning.
    Skip is currently sleep on her bed and she hasn't moved off it. I waited until she was quiet for a min before getting her out of the bathroom.

    Yes I know I gave in but this way works for us.

    I will upload a photo when I have out on to do it with my iPhone

    Hey whatever works for you.

    My older dogs all sleep out in the dog run generally and the puppies in the kitchen.

    But every couple of nights one of the dogs is chosen to sleep on our bed.

    They get a bit of a treat and also their routine stays just a little bit mixed up so that they can cope with change and they do not become co dependent on each other.
