If you decided down the line you want to move the downstairs potty, I was trying to be extra careful and moved it a couple of feet every day. Maybe it was overkill, but he didnít have any accidents. But I wouldnít make a lot of changes at once, or during a bit of regression. I ended up using a low profile tray that slid under the bench in our mudroom if people were visiting (itís by the guest bathroom) and it blended enough with the floor that it wasnít even noticeable. There might be a way down the line to better incorporate it into your living room or move it somewhere on the same floor where it doesnít bother you as much, but I think itís smart to keep it where it is right now.

DH thought our puppy should have a bit more freedom before I did. Honestly, I think he was hoping Sundance would come and find him to hang out in different parts of the house. Even when our gates are left open, heís pretty much my shadow, so I donít think that was really going to happen anyway

This made me LOL!!!! This is one problem I don't have. Awwwww! such a fun thing for Panda to do.

We, also, still have gates around the house depending on whose around. One is used to gate off our grandson's room because it's very expensive for Patti to be in their room without EYES ON HER. Best Buy finally quit offering insurance on Ear Buds and I think it's directly related to Patti. Eye Glasses are still endanger, as are Pens. Patti just got a hold of my digital art pen. I now have a new one. It's wasn't on the floor. It was "safely" on the top of my desk but my chair happened to be in a perfect spot.

There must be some Ancient Cat DNA in the Havanese breed. No matter where you try to put things they're so resourceful if there's away to jump on top of a counter they'll be up there.

I guess I must be lucky. Neither of my dogs have ever chewed up anything! My yorkie has always stolen socks but he just takes them into his crate and lays on them. I have a friend with a daschund who periodically eats an entire pencil, including metal and eraser. She says it just passes through!

You are, indeed, lucky! Pixel doesnít chew things, and Panda is pretty selective. (Ear buds, and glasses... she only goes for EXPENSIVE things! LOL!) Kodi Will steal any paper he can get to, or anything wood, like pencils, rulers, paint stirrers (those are a REAL favorite!!!) small branches smuggled in from the back yard if the back door is left open, pieces of plastic... He is really pretty terrible.

Iím fairly lucky in this regard. Denver will only go after paper. Keeper is a chewer and will chew anything. But he loves shoes. With a passion. He tries to take them to bed. But itís making us put them away (most of the time).

Sundance loves shoes, too, but doesnít chew them anymore. He did chew flip flops as a puppy. I had to buy my kids a lot of pool shoes his first summer with us. Now he just smells them and uses them to try and entice us to play. He also learned how to take my kidsí socks off of their feet and then shake them around. My kids let him because they love it - except when they were trying to leave for school! Shoes and socks have so many smells...

Sundance would probably get into more wood if I hadnít figured out thatís what he loves. We had an incident with a paint stirrer, and one or two with paintbrushes. He also took a wood shim that didnít have weight on it yet, and he was so fast about it I didnít know he took it, and I leveled a shelving unit completely wrong. I usually remember now and keep wood out of his reach. Pencils are the main culprit, though, because they fall out of backpacks and pockets, get left around for homework, etc.

My main problem with chewing “bad stuff” is my yorkie eating acorns and cicadas. During the year of the big cicada swarm he went nuts eating cicada skeletons and made himself sick. Lots of dogs in our area were getting sick from overdosing on them. Every fall we have our annual acorn digestive issue...probably due for that soon. He can cleverly carry five or six into the house without me knowing about it. I always keep slippery elm bark powder on hand. I make a paste of it and put it on his food. It coats the digestive system and just about anything will slide out.
