a lot of good advise in just a few words ol mare. thanks. Not wanting to feed and water on the carpet. I will find a small pc. of kitchen flooring and hope she can get used to it a little at a time. put her food on it. as for outside , Leash right? so I dont have to fuss because she wont come. You believe clicker is better then treats then ? How about getting her to come when called ? leash again?
