I've been reading a bit about fear in dogs and it was mentioned how it is not fear in the same sense we experience fear. I'm curious (in the event you don't have a dog with rock solid nerves) is your dog set up to fail if it has an owner with weak nerves? I've seen it said numerous times that many issues where a dog is behaving oddly/badly/fearfully around other people or dogs it is the owners fault. The way we react has a direct impact on how our dog feels about the situation.
So is a dog with an owner who has severe anxiety and/or social anxiety at an extreme risk of being a fearful dog?
