Sounds like a new routine issue to me. My dogs usually take about 2-3 weeks to adjust when we change it up for them. Be patient and she will probably adjust.It usually happens about 10 minutes after I bring her inside for the night. She used to spend the day inside with us but we have recently started puting her and our other shih tzu outside to play with my lab during the day. I think she has just had the taste of being outside and doesn't want to be in a kennel at night. Those are some great suggestions though. I will definitely let my parents know about the Thunder Jacket and the more excercise. I'm sure my little brother would enjoy taking her for another walk in the evenings. We have to figure something out quick because my stepdad keeps putting her out at night, and coming into winter probably isn't the best time to be doing that.
