I just wanted to thank you for saving my best friend. We adopted Honey over two years ago now and I don’t regret a single day. The kids think she is the best thing in the world too (don’t ask about what the hubby thinks – LOL). When we first got her, she worked so hard to learn all the rules and fit in. It was like she knew this was her forever home and she wanted to be a good girl.
We made the decision to see if she could be comfortable outside of her crate while we weren’t home and gradually, over time, learned that was her preference and she behaved so well. She had ruined a couple of items of clothing but then soon learned that not all items were hers. She also had some accidents in the house as I learned how she communicated when she needed to go out. We went for regular walks, sometimes twice a day. I think going from being a free roamer to living in a home can be stressful and the walks helped with her stress.
