Teach Ruby to sit every time a door is opened. Ask her to sit, give her a stay command, then open the door. If she stays for a few seconds, close the door, making sure she stays, and give her a treat. Gradually increase the time to a minute or two. Poodles are smart, she will catch on soon.

My puppy Lily wants to kill all squirrels, chipmunks, and bunnies, my chickens, etc. She is obsessed and stares outside then whines and wants outside badly upon viewing anything move. I don't want her bolting out the door and getting something, so I taught her this trick. She automatically sits now when I go near the door.

Good luck, and keep us posted!
