Dear forum members,
shih tzu barked non-stop - need advise
i just brought back my 6 weeks old shih tzu, joey on saturday. my hubby ahve prepare a cage for him in the kitchen, as we are staying at apartment.
she was very quiet for the first day, just a little of noice (like crying), we went to bed at 3.30am, so i carry and put her in the cage, she was sleeping then around 5.30am she wake up and walk near to my cousin who is overnight at my place (he sleap at the living hall). makaing noise, so my cousin carry joey to sleep on my cousin stomach, after a while she quiet, so put her on teh floor with a tower, so she slept.
then on sunday, she was doing fine.... start to hear a few bark on her.... until around 9.30pm, we went out to snet my friends to puchong, then reach home at 11pm, i heard her bark so loud in the cage.... (at that tim2, i quickly rush to open the door for her to come out) , at taht tiem my only fear is my fussy neighbour will comaplin to the management... as i am staying in apartment (which are not supposed to have pet) ....
ok, then at night i put her to cage in teh kitchen, then she again bark.... so again i ahve no choice but to bring her to sleep with me near to my toilet in my room. i put newspaper aroudn for her to pee poo... then put her towel and toys.... so play a whiole while i was on bed... then she start to amke funny noise and walk nera to me , trying to climb up to my mattress (i sleep on floor), so i be firm and ash her go sleep with your toys, and i show her the place. She sleep quietly for about an hour ... tehn again clinmb to my matress...
i lost my temper, so i brought her cage to the room, and put her in teh cage she bark non-stop again... so i put her out... she quiet then but just for a whiel then she try to climb to my matress and guess what i do not allowed her then she sleep at the comforter.
But one things , she is only with me for 2 days, i tarine her to pee on the newspaper, and she did it everytiem... except twice when we go out and she in teh cage bark. so once we raech home, we let her out then she will pee at the living hall while running around like a mad dog.
Can anyone with this experience share with me , what shall i do when i ahve to go out and she is alone at home (coz i am on holiday now, will start work on june 1st), so noone will be at home... then what shall i do to tarine dher to sleep in teh cage at night. as my parents do not allowed me to sleep with pets, as i have very sensitive noise.
i am miserable, pls help
evelyn, hubby and joey
