Since we started dog school she has turned evil in her stealing of things. I say evil because she ate my mom's coat. Yes the coat was in her reach. It was never and issue before. She plays outside we go for long walks in the fields she runs on her leash Horses lunge line so she can run and I do not lose her to chasing a deer or rabbit. Swims till I make her stop because I'm scared she going to drown from too may retrieves. Granted some days she does not get as much outside time. But the "evil thiefing Zoey" just started, she has torn up stuffed toys that were decorations Shmarok teddy winter Eyore that have been out since I got her. I swear this girl is so smart she is a step away from using tools. Shs is back in her crate when we are not home. At night she is fine with freedom of the house. She has always been very skilled at stealing food items we just work around that No food in her reach. Why is she destruction happy now. I'm not sure what to do with her. I'm in my room on the computer she is in the living room and she is being good girl. If I were to leave the house even to the basement to do laundry something of mine is going to bite it. I hate the fact she is in her crate again, she does not mind though and since I only work the weekends it is a crossover time of maybe 5 hours. She may come to work with me because Mom is going to visit faily for Easter and 12 hour that I'm at work is too long. I have no idea what to do with her. Could she have seperation anxiety even though it was never a problem before?
