My greatest fear just happened

Ziggy cried, whimpered and ran behind me after being growled at. How do I get him to stop this nonsense?

How old is your dog. I am thinking he is about 3?

If this is your greatest fear, I would love to have your life.

First..you need to stop thinking of it as "nonsense".

What exactly is it you are expecting from your dog? Did you want to be in the middle of full fledged dog fight?

Sarcasm really needs it’s own font but my inquiry to help Z not be so timid would be appreciated.

I recommend not growling at your dog, you're scaring him!


Seriously though, has he spent much time around other dogs? It could just be a matter of getting used to them, or it could be he's just timid.

Have you had him since he was 8-9weeks? has he had any traumatic experiences with other dogs?

are you more frustrated because you want him to be more social? or more brave/willing to defend himself?
