Msmaria I say hang in there too. We have been doing the counter conditioning and the BAT.. I have seen great improvement. Dont give up, this is something that can improve.

Amurphy26 We've seen some really positive changes in her so I am going to take the 'bitch stripe' with a punch of salt. She is what she is and I suppose whether it's because of us or despite of us doesn't really make a difference. She's taught me so much I know she will continue to improve.
Thanks again and Super G your dog is gorgeous, great markings.x

Well, if that is a "bitch stripe" on my bitch...I can say anything she might have been reactive to as a pup has greatly diminished or disappeared as she has matured....she's 20 months now. She was a bit dog aggressive at first ( leashed only )...and I took the suggestions of a fellow GSD forum member AKA Baliff and the condition is now 1/10 of what it was when I asked for help. So, I think this idea that some folks are saying " that is a sign of a line known to produce anxious dogs" is a bunch of crap. Oh, our gal has exactly the temperament I hoped for....awesome.

Now if somebody said .." a bitch stripe makes them reactive to a Waring blender on frappe" I might buy into it as our girl still has an aversion to margarita hour.

Hang in there and keep the positive attitude as well as the training alive....great times are a coming.

Merciel I don't think the stripe down the back has anything to do with the dog's temperament. Certainly I've met plenty of anxious and fearful dogs (including my very own muppet of perpetual terror!) who didn't have a bitch stripe.

Amurphy26 Thanks for the replies. She's been like this since she was about 4 mths with dogs and more recently with people. I think she probably is generally anxious but she's been beaten up by a few aggressive dogs and we think that's caused most of her reactive behaviour. To put it simply there were more bad experiences than good at that very important puppy time.

Anyway, we're working on it with BAT techniques and we're seeing good but slow progress. I just worry when people say she's been born this way and I should never expect her to be calm! I'll plod on with her. Positive attitude.😀
