How to train the dog not to ask to come and go every few minutes.

So, we’ve had this dog for about a year, it was a rescue and she’s about a year and a half, maybe a little more. Our last dog would sit on the door to go out, and when he wanted to come in, he would bark once. We didn’t train her, it just happened organically. This bitch will scratch our sliding door to get out and she will scratch to get in. The door frame is metal and it’s not doing any damage, so it’s not the scratch that worries me, it’s the frequency. It is not uncommon for her to demand to be let out and back in, 5 or 6 times in half an hour. Most of the time, it’s fine; overnight is not a problem. Often he is content to be in the garden for an hour or more. But, at least once a day, she gets into the loop of wanting out, wanting in, repeat. We’ve tried the “timer” method, where if she goes out, she can’t come back for 10 minutes, but it doesn’t seem to deter her. If she wants to come in, she scratches herself every 20 seconds until we let her in; and it is the same to go out. Also, when it’s time for bed, I let her go out to go to the bathroom and it’s usually only about two minutes before she comes back, so this seems to counteract trying to teach her that she can’t go out and come back. get in too early. . I suggested one of those dog gates that you fit into the sliding door, for daytime use, but my wife wants to train it instead of hers. Again, it’s not the scratching that worries me, it’s the rapid in and out during parts of the day. Any ideas or resources?
