Hello! About 2 months ago I got a dalmatian puppy. She's been such a sweet girl and has been so easy to train. With that being said I have run into a hiccup and am not sure how to properly extinguish a behavior. I live in an apartment and work from home so she is with me pretty much all day every day except at night when she sleeps in a crate by herself. My problem is that when I go to my mothers house (she lives close by so it's around once a week), my pup refuses to stay outside in the yard by herself. She starts scratching and jumping at the door and has really scratched up the door frame by only being out there for a few minutes. I am not sure how to get her to stop because if I open the door to get on to her then she is essentially getting what she wants by me coming outside. My initial thought is to just let her do it for a while and she will realize that it doesn't work and stop but I don't want the door to get ruined in the process. Does anyone have any suggestions?
