Re: New dog reactive, clingy, anxious when alone

@ckranz, your latest reply didn't show up for me until after I had posted. Thank you for the information. I didn't know there were so many interesting toys for dogs, I'm just looking on Amazon now just to see what's available. I see a visit to a Petland or something similar next time we're in a city...

Re: New dog reactive, clingy, anxious when alone

:D Oh, I think humans need as much training as their dogs, maybe more, since the humans tend to be more set in their ways and convinced they are right. While I find the situation exhausting and frustrating at times, I am also learning a great deal and finding it fascinating. This little dog has so m...

Re: New dog reactive, clingy, anxious when alone

Just ordered 3 McConnell books. :) Thank goodness for the Amazon marketplace, the budget is getting a bit thin for all of this! There's still one more I want to get, but as I said, the budget... I would really love to find a small frisbee for our dog as well. He loves chasing bouncy balls, but I thi...

Re: New dog reactive, clingy, anxious when alone

Thanks for your reply. Yes, we do have our hands full, which we weren't anticipating. I'm not ready to throw in the towel on this dog. He needs someone to love him and take the time and effort to help him, his problems are not going to go away if he leaves our home to go to another. The only differe...

New dog reactive, clingy, anxious when alone

Our dog is a 2 year old neutered male, a very small breed. He was surrendered by his owner to a local rescue. We adopted him about 7 weeks ago. The owner was not forthcoming about the dog's history. I do not want to say his specific breed because I would like a bit of confidentiality. What we do kno...

Re: Hello, new here

Thanks. I'll get into this more in the training part of the forum. This dog has many things going for him, but the issues we are having could end up causing major problems for us a few months from now. The dog is very vocal when upset, and we spend our winters in a city where we live in a multi dwel...

Not much info about the dog's background, but we do know he was very well trained. We're finding some behavior issues with the dog, however, an...
