For her fear issues, I would be matter of fact when she's scared. Jax used to be afraid of everything when we first got her. I used the phrase "Go See" when she was scared and I would pet what ever it was she was scared of like it was a dog. She learned when I used that phrase, she could go up to it and it would NOT scare her. The key is to NEVER scare her while using that phrase. Having people feed her treats when she meets them would be a good idea. If she's still scared, use the golden Retriever as your training partner. With Jax, we also had a friendly Golden. I had people feed him treats in front of her. She could have a treat only if she came closer and eventually had to personally take the treat from the people. After awhile she realized most people represented food which was good. We really can't tell what breed your pup is until she's older. Please post more pics as she gets bigger. Good Luck! She's really cute? Please keep us posted on her progress. welcome

I agree with the other poster. Also, I would look around for a trainer who is familiar with fear aggression. I was told to put Jax down, but I started reading anything I could get my hands on about training and the dogs mind. In the mean time, you should read a few books like "The Cautious Canine, The Other end of the Leash". They helped me a lot with Jax. Maybe someone could suggest a few others. Good Luck!

What a cutie. I know there's a website you can use to get lots of information. I just can't remember it. Maybe someone else will see this and let you know which one is legitimate, since several are bogus. Good Luck!

Dogs & Travel > Car sickness solutions

Jax used to get car sick. I started having her sit in the car and just give her treats. Then once she was used to that, I took her for "VERY SHORT" trips in the car, like down the street and back. I gradually made the trips longer. Eventually, I was able to take her to a nearby State Park and took her for a long walk. She had so much fun. Once she figured out the car rides were to go have fun, her car sickness went away. Hope that helps. Good Luck! smile

He might still be adjusting to his new home. Do you have a crate? I would go back to basics and treat him like a puppy and re-potty train him. You can put him in the crate and take him out about a 1/2 hour later. If he goes, praise and give him a treat. He just earned 1 hour of freedom. Take him back out. If he doesn't go, he goes back in the crate. If he goes, he just earned another hour of freedom. Repeat. This way is exhausting, but it works. You can gradually increase the freedom time until he gives you a cue to go out. It may be very subtle like staring at you, sitting by the door, sniffing, pacing or a whine. You can also find a cleaner that uses an enzyme to get rid of the urine in your carpet. There's a few good ones out there. Good Luck and please keep us posted.

Jax had them. Our vet advised us to leave them alone unless they started to bother her. I did have a few removed because they were on her side and it bothered her to lay down. I don't think there's anything you can do. Maybe someone else can jump in.

Dog Health > Vet try and take urine sample??

I agree with Toto. Jax used to get UTI's a lot and it was a piece of cake for the vets to get both a regular sample and a sterile sample. I hope you find a good vet. I switched vets 3x before I found one I like. Good Luck and please keep us posted. Oh, and they do take them in the back, at least my vet does. Most times my dogs behave better with out me, which might be the case for other pets and their owners. red face

Taking him to classes is a good idea. But, you can't comfort him when he's scared. He needs to face his fears, so to speak. If you comfort him while he's scared, he will think thats the way he's supposed to behave. You need to act matter of fact when he behaves like that. You can take treats with you on your walks (treats he would die for, and only use those for the walks). You can have him meet people and they can give him the treats. If he's unapproachable, then you can take a very friendly dog with you on the walks. Have the people pay lots of attention to that dog and feed that dog treats. It might take a while, but your dog's stomach while get the best of him and hopefully he will figure out people aren't so scary. That worked for Jax when she was in training. Hope that helps and good luck.
