Re: Need advice: I have apparently lost my dog's trust

Right. Thanks for the story. :)

So, that sounds like the plan...play with her, treats, make her love her daddy without being scary at all and then go from there. ;)

It's funny...it all seems so stupid, but it's actually a serious issue...which makes it all the stupider. ;)

Re: Need advice: I have apparently lost my dog's trust

Yes, stop doing the things that scare her, but also, teach her that you are not scary but good! Everything good should come from you. If you speak and she looks at you without fear, she gets a treat*. If she approaches you on her own, she gets a treat. If she looks at you and wags, she gets a treat...

Re: Need advice: I have apparently lost my dog's trust

Thanks for the links...I appreciate the help.

My initial thought was after about 45 farting noises, she'd realize that it was just a farting noise and not be scared anymore...guess that's not even remotely true. DOH!

Need advice: I have apparently lost my dog's trust

Hey folks, Been a while since I posted here. A little background on my pup: http://lh6.ggpht.com/_pjO6j2IMXk8/SQIFwZ6qUZI/AAAAAAAAEaI/VAaW9v-pOVY/s400/IMG_7503.JPG Her name is Shelby and she has recently turned 2. We got her when she was 6 weeks old, off Craigslist. Anyway, we've basically had her s...

As far as the biting, you basically need to teach the dog what is acceptable and what isn't. Basically, how we did it, and this is from research here and on other sites, if the dog bites too hard, you yowl like a hurt dog would do and jerk your hand away...and stop interacting with the dog. After a ...

I'd just keep working with the dog. Everyone on here always mentions getting a professional for everything. Doesn't seem necessary to me. Of course, I spend hours everyday training my dogs. I incorporate it into everything i do, when i'm around the dogs. Doing the dishes is a prime time for a sit an...

Actually, from what I understand, it's not just about desensitizing to your leaving, but also to your return.

You're supposed to act indifferent to coming back home and meeting the dog again.

My first dog had seperation anxiety really bad...or at least that's what i thought it was. Turned out she just hated being in a kennel. I'd lock her in there and she'd drool so profusely that I'd come home and have to give her a bath EVERY day. Like, a few quarts of drool...was insane. Some days she...

Basically, the way I've understood the whole puppy biting thing is this way: If the puppy is gnawing on your hand and it hurts, you jerk your hand away and make an 'ow' or a yowling noise. When your older dog gets bitten too hard on the ear, it's going to yowl in pain. This is how the puppy learns t...

That sounds like a good way to end up with a dead puppy. Leaving a known DA dog with another dog unsupervised is asking for trouble and when it happens you have no one to blame but yourself. I said they should be together every day...not that they should be together unsupervised every day. OP's sit...

Ha. Vying for attention, from my experience, is impossible to stop. Take two totally identical toys and put them on the ground in front of the two dogs and see what happens. Most of the time the one dog goes for one toy and the other dog decides that the other's toy is more interested than the one l...
