My GSP is 13months and she has been great and potty trained since 11 weeks, and hasn't gone in the house until the last week. She peed 2x in my room and pooped once (diahrreah).
Within the past 2 weeks I have been training her on an e-collar, and she is doing really well. Doesn't seem unhappy or anything. My wife thinks she is doing it to "get back" at me.
Any help is appreciated. How do I stop it? I still want her to be in the house, but she will sneak off into my room and go and come back out, and we find it later....
I doubt the diarrehea was deliberate. Just think about it, when you are sick with diarrehea it is sometimes really hard to make to the bathroom. So, I wouldn't worry too much about #2. The other may be a revenge type thing due to stricter discipline with the ecollar. So, I agree with Lisa on what to do, but you might also want to evaluate what you are doing with the ecollar. Did you start with the lowest setting and work up until you got a response? Do you release the correction as soon as the dog moves in the right direction. Do you reward and praise for the correct behaviour? My guess is your pup is a bit insecure, and you are putting allot of additional pressure on your pup with the ecollar. You might want to backup in whatever you are training and work on your pups confidence as well.
Thanks for the responses. I think he issue was stress related. The e-collar has been a great tool to help her training and her obedience. I think she was had some anxiety for the first couple of weeks finding out she can't do whatever she wants. Just FYI I didn't strap it on her, and start buzzing her everytime she did something wrong. I have spread out my training and discipline so she's not getting stimulation all day.
