I have to go outside in the morning to watch my daughter walk a little ways up the street to wait for her bus. I have taken Haven with me outside a few times to wait with her, but now that it is so cold out, he goes pee and then he's right back in
He shivers and shakes if he is outside for more than only a few minutes, so I don't take him out with me every morning. The problem is, is that when he stays inside he is jumping on the window sills and up on the door and is ruining them. He is such a fat ass he is scratching them all up!
Is there any way that I can teach him to stay down off things while I am outside and he is not? He will also do this if they kids go outside to play and he stays inside with me. He constantly whines and jumps onto anything he can to see where they are. Am I just wishful thinking I can train this out of him, and he should just be in his crate when I am not inside with him or the kids are outside? It isn't bad now because it is so cold, so they kids don't go out much at all. But, when it's nicer soon, I don't know what to do. Especially, if the windows are open with the screens in them!
