Re: petting a shy dog

I have tried what people suggested, I have hired trainers and trainers have told me to get rid of the dog. she said she will also be fearful and she was a recommended positive reinforcement trainer.

Re: snapping at other dogs

female dog, she took a obedience class and did well, the behavior occurs more on a leash. if someone is petting her and then goes to another dog, she becomes jealous and then will snap and growl at the other dog, I tell her no but she will do it again in a few minutes.

snapping at other dogs

Re: petting a shy dog

yes, it is true people do say rude things about my dog and it is hurtful. I did everything right when the dog was a puppy but she was just shy. I would love to have people pet her but that is just a dream that will never happen

Re: petting a shy dog

i have worked with her on agility and odebience classes. she took many classes. nothing helps her. having a dog like this is very sad for me. everyday I walk her and someone asks to pet her, no one can pet her. I see other people with their dogs and there dogs are great. I would like a friendly dog.

Re: petting a shy dog

yes, but I am looking for a more social dog, I go many places and I want to bring my dog. she might do better in a home where she can be shy

petting a shy dog

hi
I have a shy dog and when people go to pet her, she becomes frightened. She will move back. I want people to be able to pet my dog. How can I get my dog used to people approaching her and petting her? She will take treats from people. thanks

Re: barking in class

she is barking because she is waiting around, sometimes she will bark at another dog. She is a mixed breed dog, spaniel/shepherd. I want her to pass, do you think making a noise will distract her? What can I do?

barking in class

My other outgoing dog is taking the canine good citizen course, she is doing well but she barks during class when we are not doing anything. the trainer said that she will fail the test if she barks alot during it. The trainer suggested water in her face to stop barking, what else can I do?

Re: Episode 304 - Bad to the Bone (Jan 29)

I know Bones was fearful of people in his house, but what about while on a walk? How was he with people? And if he acted fearful, what would you do?
