Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Re: 2nd fear period

ive had mixed success quieting barking. for the most part now when he barks i call him over (which inadvertently quiets him) and then he gets a cookie. lately hes even heard a noise and then come running for the cookie even before he barks! PROGRESS! highly recommend a treat pot by your fav veg spot...

Re: 2nd fear period

Oh lordy she sounds just like my bax but probably amped up even more then he was O.o (bless collies). nothing productive to say just that my terrier came from a similar upbringing (Backyard with not much to do) and EVERYTHING new merited losing his very last marbles over. he was inconsolable for day...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

camping with bax went gloriously. he made lots of friends with all the kids at the park and they kept coming round and round and round and round to say hi to him :roll: frankly it got a bit exahsting. but he had fun. unfortunately for my sister she brought her chihuahuas. one was fine but theres a n...

Re: Tips for positive socialization while on walks

I'll be honest, given Bax's early years i have the body-block-and-say- "He's a little shy" down PAT. its funny because he then proceeds to mug them for snuggles but at least it slowed them down. I have honestly found people to be very receptive of just flat telling them your dog is scared/anxious/sh...

Re: Tips for positive socialization while on walks

Not sure what your end goal is as far as people socialization. it sounds like your mostly okay with her saying what she wants and does not want? which is great! if you ARE interested in getting her more lovy with PEOPLE i can offer some pointers. I have a dog that WAS extremely fearful of ALL people...

Re: Therapy Dog

Re: Sitting when meeting people
