27. I agree with most of the tips given here:
Lots of attention, fun, and activity to tire her out

1 year old is not too old for crate training, and this could really help you out. Those Cong toys are fabulous and keep my 2 year old terrier very happily busy when we are indoors and she wants something to do!

Give her food on a more regular schedule to get her bowels predictable.

Look for dog walkers to give her extra diversion and exercise.

I wish you all the best in the coming period!
