Dogs really want to please their masters, we just are not good at communicating with them. No need to hit her, she will not understand why she is being hit, no matter what you hit her with.
CBW sounds like you know about training pets. You are correct about praising a good behavior.
I had a dog training business for many years. "Have A Heart Kennel".. Y ou must catch your dog thinking about or while doing it if you want a scolding to work. Beating the crap out of a dog after the fact only works if your dog is psychic.. "YOU" will need alot of training if you want your dog to read your mind.
Leave the door cracked open just a little, when you see her starting to come in, yell with athority "NO". You will need to do this many times to get the idea across. Or you can use a colored towel, rag, cloth, ribbon on the door when you do not want her to come in. For the first few times you will need to correct her. Use the rag trick when you say "NO", after a while whe will know the colored rag means no pets. Every dog is different just the same as kids, the same as shooting a gun, no 2 people shoot the same. No 2 dogs train the same.
Good luck with the pooch..
