Hi, i am new here and this is my first thread. we have 2 dogs one besenji Zac and a toy poodle cross bichon frise Rudi. My dogs mostly live outside except when it comes to bed time i let them in the house to sleep usually under the bed.
My wife is now 10 weeks of being due with our new baby boy, Parker, And i have now relised that if we want the baby to sleep in the our room for the first few months with us. the dogs will have to go out. just in case they knock something over etc.
Problem is they bark,howl and scratch at the door all night if we go to bed and there still out side. is there anything we can try now before its to late? i really don't want them waking the baby up. My wife has suggested getting rid of them but there's no way in the world i will be one of those losers who dump there animals at the refuge. We originally got the besinji from the pound he had been there for most of his life 5 yrs and was returned twice when he was not wanted. And even know my wife suggested that she would regret it.
I do have a garage and a shed i could let them sleep in, which they hate? but besides that i have no idea, any help would be good.
And to add to that when we first got Zac he was abused and was afraid of men, its taken me ages to get his trust. he would not come near me for months and was afraid to come in the house. now he is 100% confident and very very pesky,
