I have a 2 year old yorkie girl! She's very sweet and playful! She's been sleeping with me since I got her at 4 months. I've never minded her sleeping with me since she's only 6 lbs and fairly small.
I started dating someone and although he likes dogs, he doesn't agree with them sleeping in bed with us. He tends to be a light sleeper so he tends to wake up when the dog moves around etc.
My question is, how do I train my dog to now sleep downstairs? I have a pretty large kitchen and family room and i put a gate up in the hallway and she stays there during the day while I'm at work. I don't crate her because she is potty trained and either holds it or uses her pee pad. At night if I put here though, she yelps and barks because she's used to sleeping with me. Do i jus still with leaving her down here until she gets used to it? I need help.
