I have 2 boys, 1 rescue that needs work on being around other dogs. Well, wanting to know the best way to work with them ? I know to get them out, out, out. Do at times, not everyday or weekly & now it's getting colder.
We are in a smaller town & just have Petsmart for training. I have done 2 classes with our fear boy awhile back.
He freaks at times (not sure when he will go off) when other dogs are coming at him. Like he fears them. Sometimes he's fine. He has gotten much better.
Our rescue.........well, not sure what his prob is ? If in Petsmart shopping & he hears a dog tag jingle, he gets all allert & ready. Once is sees the dog, he whines/cries etc & not sure what's up with that ?
It's wierd & people always ask & look like, what is wrong with him ! Don't want to aproach another dog with him like that.
Either way, both need work & not sure how to help them ? Only good independent trainer I work with in agility said, to do agility with them & get them out & about. I try, but you don't always see dogs or have calm dogs/people that understand your situation.
I take them for rides, walks here/there, to work, & try to do what I can.
Just wonder what other think.............
