I kind of regret it is because I feel like she won (hope that doesn't come off sounding bad, lol) She still whines a little even being in my room, but only when she first has to go into her playpen, so yeah, not too thrilled about that. (that's another post, lol)
The conversation hasn't come up yet with the guy I am seeing because any intimate moments have happened at his house. He does have a dog (larger one) and she is accustomed to not sleeping in his room, so he closes the door with no problem. I am hoping to train her to be ok with being outside of my room or moving her into my son's room. I really don't know how she would do when or if the time comes when we (me and my mate) want alone time, I can just imagine her being in the hallway howling and whining totally killing the mood, lol.
Lol it doesn't sound bad even I sometimes need alone time and I tell my dogs "I'm kicking you out" of the room (obviously not literally they just go in the backyard for a while till I let them back in)
But I truly believe it'll be "harder" when it her time to sleep outside the room at night.
Maybe his dog would actually serve as a companion and maybe calm her a down if you leave them in a room together (if he brings his dog of course)
That would definitely sucks and it takes a very "understanding" mate to have the patience with a dog screaming behind the door (I personally believe)
I wonder if you could "re-train" her as of now slowly so it won't be a "shock" when she meets a new guy and the same day kick her out lol (she wouldn't be a happy camper)
Then again maybe your son's room is the only option since she has separation issues. Is he okay with it?
Unless another dog helps. I know my dog Brownie had helped Sunshine become a "normal" dog since she had been abused.
