The nights since she has been sleeping in the bathroom downstairs on her own (we sleep upstairs) and she has run of this small room (bedding on the floor (crate is not in there) with toys and paper for toileting on).

These obstacles are called contact obstacles because there are specific spots on one or both sides which your dog must touch with at least one paw. You can teach your dog to make this contact by leaving treats on the contact zone. Your dog will get the treats only by putting his paw in the contact zone. Be sure to practice this as you teach each obstacle.

And in all fairness, you’re probably imprisoning them just for being a dog and having done something that dogs naturally do. Something that you haven’t taken the time to train and teach them otherwise not to do.
For thousands of years, dogs in the wild have sought out small “dens,” where they can feel safe and sheltered while resting, caring for puppies, or recovering from an injury or illness. Giving your puppy his own personal bedroom can help him feel more secure.
Another tip I keep hearing crop up that will help you…and this might sound counter-intuitive at first…is if you train your dog how to speak on command because then you can train them the ‘quiet’ command so they know the difference.
Training the tire jump is similar to training the regular bar jump. The trickier part of it is to get your dog confident to jump through a narrow opening. Go slow and lower the tire all the way to the ground to start. Tap inside the tire to encourage your dog to go through, or have a friend hold your dog on one side while you are on the other and gently guide him through the tire with the leash. When he is confidently doing this, try walking along side as he jumps through the tire. As always, greet him on the other side with all the silliness and excitement you can muster. Don’t rush the process of raising the tire or your dog might run underneath, and never treat your dog if he does this. If you recently raised the height, lower it back to where you were and start again. Then raise it after he is doing good at that height. However when your dog is used to jumping the tire at full height, don’t allow your dog to jump at a lower height (like in a training class). After a while your dog will start to “memorize” what’s necessary to get through the tire accurately. If you surprise him with a lower height he might miss the opening and hurt himself.
So just have a crate in the room but do no crate training, just let her get used to it being there with no pressure from you, allow here to go in and out if and when she pleases. Leave some food treats in there now and then to encourage her if she chooses not to go in and so on.
If you need to start using a crate as soon as possible, try the following Weekend Crate Training plan. After your training sessions on Saturday and Sunday, you’ll be able to start confining your dog in her crate on Monday.
If your dog is aggressive or dominant, start slowly. A sudden display of alpha behavior to a dog who considers himself the alpha will be seen as a challenge and the dog may choose an aggressive course of action. For instance, if you take the dog’s food away, something which an owner needs to be able to do, you could be bitten if the dog does not yet see you as its leader.
My wife and I both work 8 hours a day. I was wondering if it would be better to leave the dog in a fenced yard for the day, rather than crate her during crate/potty training? Weather permitting of course, i.e. not too hot or cold, rainy, etc.
An adult dog can be crated for as long as eight hours on occasion, but daily crating of this length could compromise your dog’s mental and physical well-being. Be sure that she’s received adequate exercise before a long stay in the crate-at least 30 to 60 minutes. If your dog is crated overnight as well, she should receive at least 60 to 90 minutes of outdoor exercise in the morning and before being put back in the crate at night.

A dog can certainly hold their bladder for 7hrs overnight. Their bodies slow down like ours do and they need to potty far less often than they would during the day. Keep up with crate training, perhaps start training him to be happier accepting time alone and in time, yes, things should get better.
