we have had our Spanish greyhound for almost 6 months now and she is adorable. She remains a rather shy dog overall but exhibits no major issue after we have progressively overcome statuing, stopping during walks and all the rest. We live in a 3 room apartment, with a shared garden and she gets a minimum of 3 one hour-long walks a day. She definitely enjoys outdoors more than indoors. Inside the apartment, she has her safe space on a big couch which is just for her, with her blanket and toys (that she barely touches by the way...).
The thing I'd like your opinion about is that, in the end, when she is indoors, she only lives in the room where she has her couch and, occasionally, in the kitchen where she has her food and water. She never wanders in other rooms, has not interest in moving around the apartment or checking out other spots at home. I can see she is getting very nervous when we try to lure her into another room to show her other spots where she could stay. When we move rooms she never follows us. I can spend the day working in the next room and she will not come once when I call her.
I am concerned that she gets bored/depressed by staying all day long on the couch (except for the walks), just laying down and not even playing with toys.
Is this a normal behaviour? Should I keep trying to get her accustomed to staying in another room, despite her anxiety signs? If yes, what would be the best way? Or should I let her be her way, as her couch is her safe space and after all all is fine?
Thanks in advance
