Moving Australian Shepherd From Backyard to Apartment
I have had my little girl for 6 years, and she has lived most of her life in our backyard. Plenty of room to run around barking at cars driving by and running after golfers (in a fence) that drive by behind our house.
I am looking at moving to an apartment complex that allows dogs and would love to bring her with me (I left her at home with my parents for now). Any advice on transitioning her from a backyard to an apartment at 7 years old?
She's never been potty trained but she is brought in at night to sleep in a crate in the garage when it gets too cold outside and never potties in it.
She loves to go on runs with me, and I plan to take her on morning/afternoon runs/walks. Right now she gets little to no interaction because both my parents work and just let her roam around outside.
So my questions are: is this transition possible? If so, how can I make it easy on her, and how do I potty train an adult Aussie?
