|Banjo has always been a fearful dog but it wasnt so bad because he always had his friend Shandi which I think gave him alot more confidence. Sadly in August we lost Shandi very suddenly when she was hit by a car and passed away. Banjo has never been on his own and it has taken a toll on him.
He's past the grieving stage now and back to his normal self. But he has changed alot. He gets crazy excited when we get home now after being out. He's alot more clingy and pretty much all over you. I understand why he's like this now and it doesnt bother me. But the one thing thats changed is his fear level. He's terrified of everything! I mean everything. A water bottle, a plate, most noises, his food bowl. The other day we tried to give him left over spaghetti and he was terrified of it. He'd grab some out of his bowl and run away then eat it. Given this was right after we had a snake in our yard but still. He was scared of food.
Since he's been on his own he's just become scared of everything and Im not really sure what to do. I know him having a friend would help but he's dog aggressive which makes it difficult.I know he could get along with another dog but it'd have to be a dog with a specific personality. Any tips of how to help him work through his fear issues? He's not scared of one specific thing he's scared of pretty much everything.
