Today was a much calmer day. We paid a morning visit to the Full House and Chimera enjoyed the hamburger being passed out to all the dogs. (Later he had lots of diarrhea, ugh.) Afterwards I took him home to nap while I did my daily hike. He barked a lot when I got home, and I spent five minutes or so giving him treats for brief moments of quiet. In the evening I did laundry, and crated Cai every time stepped out to go to the laundry room, or was cleaning or cooking in the kitchen. No barking during these short sessions.
I thought that I was making good progress with potty training, and was taking him out at least once an hour, but then Cai jumped onto The Chair and let loose a full bladder. nooooooo
