I have a three year old miniature Australian shepherd (Hermione); she is incredibly playful and not food motivated...at all. And at three years old I still wouldn't say she is comply housebroken and now we have leaped backwards. A couple of points; she has recently started showing some interest in treats, but never if we are outside. We are talking about a dog that literally acts offended if you try to give her bacon when outside. I have tried praise and toys and play and nothing holds her attention like what is just naturally outside because what she really wants to do is run and chase bugs and birds. When she was younger she defied the whole, "dogs won't mess where they sleep." she would; and then she would lay in it. Like she would refuse to go while we were outside, like literally for twelve hours, she would finally go, I would crate her to go to dinner for like...two hours, she would have peed and laid in it. She hasn't done that in a long time and I can safely crate her now. So fast forward to now; I got a second dog two months ago because we moved from my brothers with his dog, yard, and kids and I felt like she was going to need a playmate. They play together, sleep together, she's generally protective of whiskey (the new dog) and even seems to take some queues from her sometimes...whiskey loves treats and that seems to have interested her in them. But all of a sudden she's pooping on the rug (the rug that she loves...seriously she refused to leave that rug for hours when I first got it) and just now ..she went in Whiskey's crate and peed all over her bed. Is she jealous? Scared? Feeling displaced? Sick?
