We've been letting Shelby in the family room with us all along but have kept her on a leash that is anchored to our table. For about the last week or so we've been letting her be in there with free reign of that room, the dining room and the kitchen. She is doing so well!! I thought for sure she was going to ransack my daughter's baby toys, but she doesn't even go near them or even seem to notice them. AND she's going to the door when she has to go outside. She did pee on the deck though because she thought getting the leash put on her was a game and not a purposeful event-LOL. You're probably saying-big deal our dog is good too, but she's our first so I guess I just have the first time dog mommy, "Wow this training stuff is working" reaction.
