Hi everyone My dog Porthos is a timid dog because she came from a research station so she is very socialized. She is friendly, but timid. My problem is I cannot find a way to punish her when she does something bad because she pees. For example, she is not allowed on the couch and when either me or my boyfriend catch her on there we cant even raise our voice to an authoritative tone because she becomes frightened, freezes up, and pees; all over the couch. This happens anywhere, carpet, floor, etc. You can see the issue here! lol, any ideas? I have tried time out but she continues to do things she isnt supposed to because we cannot punish her. any ideas? Also, as cute as it is she knows how to do things, sit, lie down, roll over, i was able to teach her but now if we ask her to do something it is either jump up and do nothing or go straight to roll over and skip everything else even if we say sit. Its getting to be quite an issue. I had a border collie before that was extremely smart and did everything we asked of her the second we asked her, so I dont know if i am training Portoes wrong or just not right for her... can anyone offer any suggestions?
