How do you keep a" doodle down" after being spayed Brenna is 8 months old and the 1st 2 days after being spayed she was happy to just do nothing but lay at our feet. The vet said to just take her out to do her thing and no play. She is going nuts in the house!! I take her out and sit with her so that she can at least smell all the out-door things that I know she misses. I can't keep her from jumping up to the counters and the gate that separates her from the front door. I am just wondering how dilagent should I be????!
