Hi, We've recently adopted an approx. 16month old collie/shepherd mix. She's great at home and on leash. However, when she wants to go and have a nap she becomes really unresponsive and stubborn. I'm trying to train her to go to her "place" during the day, and her "bed" at night. When she's awake and willing to learn she'll go to these places no problem, but when she's sleepy she just wants to lay in the middle of the room and sleep. If she were any other dog this would be fine, but she has this "guarding" behaviour centred around her sleeping areas which is why I want her to sleep in the places that I have given her. She gives a grumble/growl and sometimes a "yipe!". To be honest, she hasn't displayed this behaviour much at all. I've only seen it when she's really fed up and wants her space, or when she's had a nightmare and something spooks her awake. But anyway, I would like her to go to her "place" during the day to prevent her from displaying this guarding behaviour at us/anyone that has to walk past or step over her to get in/out of the living room. I've put her "place" only a few feet away from where she normally plonks herself and have been praising her and giving her treats when she goes to it herself. Her chew toys are there. She get's a stuffed kong and a dentastick there. But after a little while of her staying there, she gets up and lays down in the middle of the room again and refuses to budge. No amount of any level of treats can get her to move. She just ignores us completely and goes to sleep. This same thing happens in the evenings when we get ready to go to bed and want her to go to her night-time bed. We haven't had her for very long, so it's still very early days, but where am I going wrong? Thank you all in advance.
