Re: Don't you hate it when......
Everyone has an opinion about what you should do with your own dog! I've learned this with Brenna, she is very shy/fearful of strangers but improving with baby steps. When I was at my friend's house a few weeks ago her in laws were staying there for a couple days as well. Her BIL talked to me about Brenna for a bit and tried to get her to come up to him, etc. The next day he announced that he talked to a buddy of his who trains k-9's and his buddy says to break her out of that I should fight her (like a pit bull). HUH?? How could it possibly break my dog's fear of strangers to stick her in a pit with a dog that wants to kill her? He tried to play it off as a joke when my friend and I both looked at him like he had two heads...Ugh
