Trash Cans and Laundry!
so i have a problem with my dog... she is a 2yr.-old Manchester Terrier, Chihuahua mix and she is generally a pretty quick learner but she can't seem to get the prospect of leaving trash cans and laundry alone!
she is a pretty hyper dog as it is but she is plenty well exercised and we leave her with different chew toys every day and she sometimes uses them, but other times, doesn't
so when my mom is at work and me at school or work, she is digging in the trash cans or laundry baskets... my mom puts her "relaxing clothes" on her small bedside table and Gigi (dog) pulls them off and puts them on my bed; she also steals my underwear, socks, shoes, and bras and puts them on my bed and it's very embarrassing when i have friends come over from after school and it's just plain gross! my parents refuse to by hampers or put up clothes so she can't get them so i don't know what to do to get Gigi to stop!
and also while we are away she gets in the trash cans and digs in them and picks something out and just rips it to shreds! she doesn't even seem to eat it! just rips it up! i'm scared she will eventually digest something that she shouldn't and it could block her up! we spray the kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom trash cans with white vinegar which normally tends to keep her away but if somebody throws something new in the trash can, she gets it and rips it up and my parents also refuse to get covered trash cans!
kenneling her isn't an option during the day becuz that's too long for a dog to be in a kennel and my dad will not allow a dog to be kenneled anyway
so does anybody have any ideas? i can try once more to persaude my parents to do covered hampers and trash cans and put up their clothes and if you guys all agree that that is the proper choice and it is well worth it to keep her from "risks" or w/e, then my mom might go for it
any other suggestions otherwise?
