We recently got a new dog and are in the process of house training. It's more my mom training the dog than me because I have school every day otherwise I would deal with it, but what can you do? I told her basically the dog needs to be in his cage, outside, or supervised until he's got the hang of it. The problem is that she doesn't like to listen to him barking in his cage (for an hour or more, he doesn't quit) and when she puts him outside, he just stands and scratches at the door. The door is relatively new and he's tearing it up. Any suggestions on either the barking or the scratching? Thanks for the help.
