Hi guys, I was hoping people might be able to offer some insights. We have a gorgeous 13 week old mini doxie, she's been with us for nearly 3 weeks. In that time, toilet training is going well (mainly going outside in our garden or on pads, with a few little accidents), she has a good food routine and she sleeps in her crate throughout the night with no crying. Myself and my partner work from home so we are around constantly but have started to leave her for 1-2 hours alone in her pen with her toys, water and bed and she seems to occupy herself with them just fine. The main issue is that when we are in the room, even after we've met her needs (she's had a wee/poo, she's eaten, she's had at least 30 mins of play time), she still wants our attention. This means as we watch TV right next to her, she's barking, pacing and growling. She has her toys/water/bed by her but ignores them entirely. If we leave the room, within about 10 mins she settles and usually starts playing with her toys or goes to sleep. If we stay in the room and try to do our normal routine in the evenings which is to sit and watch tv for 2 hours before bed, she can bark/growl and pace for a good hour. We're really worried she is under exercised but from everything we've read, we're doing enough. I wonder if the solution is that we don't sit in that room around her bedtime (8pm onwards) so she can settle and go to sleep? Or would that create an unhelpful habit - as her bed is in our family living room and we do spend a few hrs every evening watching tv there.
