Bedtime has become a smooth and stress free routine. Yeah!
When she is outside, she just comes in when we start preparing her lick mat. She sits patiently in the kitchen till we are done, and follows us in the living room. She usually doesn't eat it right away and waits that we go close the backdoor. She then goes find the treats we left by the door, and comes back to the lick mat. After that, she settles down with us in the living room.
Sometimes, she just comes inside by herself to hangout with us in the living room. But we still follow the same routine (lick mat, close backdoor, leave treats by the door) as she really seems to do well with predictability.
