I have never had a dog before but my dh grew up with them. My dh and I have been trying for a baby for almost 2 years and decided to adopt a dog. This wasn't an overnight decision but when we found her, it seemed like it became that way.
The dog we adoped (from an owner, not a place) is a 5 year old Shitzu - chawa (sorry can't spell). She is crate and command trained. So she basically lives in crate. I work from home and when I am home, I keep her in the main floor, while I work upstairs and have a gate up. She sleeps in a crate at night. Anyways, I am having a lot of anxiety. She whines a lot through out the day and when we put her to bed and seems like she never gets enough attention. My dh loves her but I am finding it really hard to adjust. I am basically crying as I write this.
What should I do? It has only been 4 days and the mornings I seem fine but at night I am a wreck. My dh says it will get easier but so far hasn't. Should I give her a full month?
