5 month old unable to be outside by herself
My little girl is unable to go outside by herself for more than two minutes.
She will scream, dig at the door, jump up at the back window, launch herself at the door and slam into it and then take to digging up the back lawn or ripping plants out of pots.
I have been ignoring this behavior and trying to wait it out but she does so much damage and doesn't seem to settle at all. Yesterday her screaming went on for two hours, she smashed three pots, chewed my outdoor table and ripped out half the lawn.
I am able to crate her by herself with no problems so I don't think it's separation anxienty, more like a tantrum as she doesn't want to be out there.
She gets exercised daily, both on the leash and off. I also go through basic training excersises to keep her mind active. She has bones and toys outside that she ignores unless the other dogs are eating them.
She loves our yard when I'm there, but turns into a little monster once I shut the back door
