I have had to ban my dog from going upstairs in my house after she had several accidents on brand new carpeting. She is not a puppy. She is 9 years old and doesn't have accidents on the first floor of my house. I had to put up a baby gate to stop her from going upstairs. She used to sleep on my bed (upstairs) but has adjusted very well to sleeping downstairs. However, during the day, if I have to go upstairs, she cries non-stop until I come back downstairs. I have tried ignoring her. I've tried strongly saying "no.' I've even tried spraying her with water, something I thought I'd never do. But she still cries when I go upstairs. Any ideas of how to make her stop crying? I almost feel like a prisoner, unable to go upstairs in my own house. Has anyone had success with the no bark collars or are they only for barking?
