Hello every-dog! I'm new on this website and decided to introduce myself in a diary entry. My name is Champloo and I'm the alpha dog of the house! Mom keeps me in most of the day, unless it time to go out and do my business, and I like to stay with her, I am most definitely the apple of her eye! so she doesn't often see how I misbehave with other humans. I'm 9 months old but i grew up as a malnourished and neglected dog, hence I've been very skittish around home since I got here, and just untrustworthy of most people, especially guys.
I like to hide in quiet rooms and howl when I'm left outside.Mama new my situation when she adopted me , but she just noticed the extent of my anxiety.Worrying, she brought me to a local pets-mart trainer and began asking questions.
"Is there any way I can train him to be less of a scaredy cat" Is what she had practically asked , and he replied with a matter-of-fact suggestion. " I would start treating him with aroma therapy, and calming therapy. we sell these brand harness called ThundershirtTM that seem to have a swell reputation as well. " I am para-phrasing , of-course, "After he regains his confidence with the combined methods , he may start to prosper and be eager to learn tricks, or even walk on the leash" The man had gone mad! Mommy was carrying me then and there was NO way I would ever go on a walk . The loud streets, the children playing in their yards. one would be crazy to enjoy anything of the sort.
Though after coming home and receiving a peppermint oil calming massage, and wearing the thundershirtTM a second time, I feel rather optimistic. I still snipped at my house-mate J_lo, but I haven't taken refuge under the sofa once today.
