About 4 months ago, we adopted 2 dogs from the SPCA. We love and enjoy both dogs (a Male Golden retriever and a female Jack Russel/Dachund mix). But we have a problem. The Female Mix is not 100% house broken. And the problem is in communication. She will bark incessantly when she wants IN from outside, but will not bark to go outside. When we are awake, we have learned her "signs" and have little trouble. But after we've gone to sleep, or if we are away, the dog will happily (it seems) use our carpets for any "business" she needs. We do not leave our dogs unattented for long periods and have had 0 problems w/the Golden in this regard. It's a sweet dog, but it's come down to a showdown. Either the dog "gets w/the program" or she won't live here anymore. Looking for suggestions that we might try to help her.
