As of 2100 mini-walkies which I aim to do about four times a day as it includes leash and leaving the house quietly training, he had a peewees.
0400 Peewees on the wooden hall floor secretly when all lie sleeping
0600 Peewees on a petsheet in the hall
0600~0730 Park Walkies poopies no peewee
0830 Garden peewees after breakfast
1000 Miniwalkies + peewees
11:07 Garden peewees
1200 Miniwalkies + peewees...
1405 Garden peewees
1700~1900 Park Walkies peewees 1855
1930 Garden poopies
Looks like a peewees every one and a half hours...so far...
Dogs from the pound do go through a period of readjustment and it takes a month or two for them to adapt, but this is pretty radical, and three months into his stay with us. No wonder the poor little mite was abandoned...
Meanwhile researching relaxing aromatherapy for dogs, (and avoiding teatree, ylangylang, peppermint and cinammon), I found an insect repellent recipe of eucalyptus, cedarwood, citronella and lemon grass. For calming and relaxing hyperactivity in the dog, it seems I can choose from Bergamot, Frankincense, Lavender, Jasmine, Chamomile, Lemon, Neroli and Marjoram. Neroli, Jasmine and Chamomile cost a fortune, but I do have Bergamot, Frankincense, Lavender and Marjoram, so that gives me ample choice to play around with a scented nightrub to soothe Sherlock into a sleep to last til morning. The entire list for those interested at dogs.the funtimesguide.
The good news is, Sherlock is barking less at the door and gate, which encourages me to begin addressing the next hurdle, alarm barking at night...More on this tomorrow.
