Well last time i wrote in my diary i mentioned i had started barking at other dogs when Im on lead. Well it still continues and Mummy though what better way to nip it in the bud then get someone professional straight away! I now have my own behaviourist who is helping Mummy become more of a leader, the Lady says Im extremely stressed when outside which could be due to all my ear/ skin infections. Im also scared of big dogs, I will be fine fur the first meeting off lead and then I iniciate play but when the big doggies start getting too playful i will run away screaming.
Does anyfur have any advice?

Well fur about 2-3 weeks Mummy has been working really hard with the action plan from the Lady and last week I met 2 brown labs (i seem particularly scared of these) who came running and bounding over to me, there owners were on where in sight. I let out a few yelps but not my usual screaming & flight so Mummy is extremely proud, hopefully Im on the path to more confidence & leaving behind my insecurites.

I, too, hope you are on the path to more confidence around big dogs. I know we can be intimidating, but we really only want to play! Hugs!

You can do it Teddy! Sometimes we never know what caused the problem in the first place. Keep on practicing with your mom.

Glad you're doing better! I freak out at big dogs - I got bad after some attacked me. I'm more relaxed now than I was, but I still will bark and stand up on my back legs.

I don't bark at other dogs when out but I bark at strange things that are out of place in the neighborhood, and people walking towards me carrying things in their arms...they look weird.

Years ago when my parents had an issue like this with one of their other dogs, they had a trainer come. The trainer had our dog walk a distance behind the strange dog so they could still smell him/her at a distance until he was calm...this way they were not approaching each other. Later, the two dogs were able to sit at the park together.

Also, another thing mom used to do was when their dog would bark at another one across the street, she'd start running fast to distract him.

Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving!

Love, Huey
