Handling terrier in extreme situations

The case is with 5 years old male jack russell terrier, who's calm to be considered as a terrier, but there is still some sharpness in his nature. As most of the time everything goes so well and smooth, I tend to forget it's still possible for him to lose it all. Today there was this conflict after ...

Re: Shy terrier

Again thank you so much! He often comes himself, so he's very curious and friendly. I have noticed not paying attention to him helps a lot. Also if that isn't somehow possible I've offered him nice treat as asked to go to his own bed and asked to stay there. After all he does value his own peace and...

Re: Shy terrier

This is a mental question for myself. If I ask him into a lap and he comes but shivers, how should I react? He's obviously nervous about coming to me. If I send him away, it won't help him facing me? If I keep him there, seeing him being nervous makes me anxious. He won't change his behaviour even a...

Re: Shy terrier

Yes, I've noticed it's way better to train him how to react in certain situations than how not to. I see how it gives this uncertain guy great comfort. Maybe I'm just not able to see all situations from his angle. I'll try to think about that more. I have a perhaps tricky question: How should I reac...

Re: My dog doesn't like any dog treats.

My puppy didn't care about treats what ever I tried until I bought dried calves liver that I soaked in water for a day. Those stinked so bad that they must have tasted awesome. Before that no wieners, cold cuts nor dog crackers did the deal. You just have to be patient trying to find that special tr...

Re: Shy terrier

Firstly pardon my English, it's not my native. I hope to get understood. It's also bit difficult to think the important things, but lets try. As both of us humans are students we really don't have that much daily routines. Dog sleeps with us. Usually bf wakes 6-8 am up and leaves before me, sometime...

Shy terrier

Hi! I've had my 3 years old male jack russel with me since pup. Registered health conscious family kennel, so no bad word about that. He's always been a bit shy, maybe I discouraged him as a pup, hard to say. He is my first own dog and it took a while to get used to having it thou I had prepared and...
