Audrey I wanted to revisit this as some time has passed. GOOD NEWS!! We have not had another occurrence of this and he still loves to go to the farm. He is also cool as a cucumber walking on city streets and experiencing new things. I NO more stinky butt

Linda1270 I used to get a similar situation with my chocolate Lab, but not out of fear, with Cocoa it was when he got excited. Training and a couple of tablespoons of pumpkin every other night helped this situation out tremendously.

huntergreen wonder if this is something he will grow out of.

back at it again!

I forgot to tell you the best part. Jasper followed me back out to the pasture again today. He didn't run circles around the horses but he did sit ten feet from them and watch them eat their feed while I groomed them. No stink butt! Yes! I was so nervous he was going to be afraid from now on.

Audrey I am feeding him Lamb and Rice large breed puppy food from Diamond foods sold at tractor supply. I figured it was anal glands. I appreciate everyone's responses. Jasper is doing amazing in training and I pay for one on one classes with a very good trainer who has taught military and police dogs in the past. She thinks he is exceptional. He is introduced to new stimuli frequently from city streets to parks, playgrounds, outdoor tennis matches, chickens, Horses, goats, he will even sit and stay while the deer stroll through the backyard. We go on a field trip 4 days a week. He loves the car. He is a very smart dog who is praise driven with training. I have only noticed the smell twice, despite the continual new experiences so I am not overly concerned about his confidence. He handles everything with an alert and forward curiosity. The first time I noticed "the smell" he had been in my home for 2 days and he was 9 weeks old. (Moms gone, siblings gone and this woman who took them from me just put something around my neck and is leading me with it) This time he is 21 weeks old and it was because a 2000 pound animal decided to run with him rather than just graze while Jasper ran circles around him. I can imagine for a 21 week old puppy that can be scary not understanding Gandolphs intent. Normally the horses just graze on their feed, they are so bombproof with dogs they dont react to Jasper. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't a metabolic issue secondary to a fear response. I will talk to my trainer about this when she is back from the holiday trip she is on. Thanks again!

onyx'girl Not upset, no reason to express them, dogs do it naturally on their own...and in this case the dog is doing it out of fear. When you post extract them, that means removal, that is why I questioned your response.
