16 weeks and Suddenly Afraid of Dogs
I've taken my puppy through puppy Meet-and-Greets, First Puppy Classes and many places where other dogs are being walked in controlled situations. I have two older, large dogs at home. We never had a problem until this week, when our pup suddenly became afraid of all the other dogs. His hackles go up and he barks at them. He even barked at a dog on a cardboard cut out on a sign in the pet food store. Everyone around was laughing but I was concerned at the sudden change. I backed off from taking him places with other dogs in case it is overwhelming him right now, but I need advice on how to proceed.
