|Pip the first day we brought her home.|
She has enough energy to power the sun! She is getting more and more confident every day. She's sooooo vocal too. I believe that underneath her fears is a very stable temperament. The hardest fear I've had to work on is her fear of people, but that's only because people don't like to be told not to pet a shy dog.
She's fearful to people, especially adults over 30 years old and especially men. She's scared of the bath. She gets overwhelmed in stimulating environments easily. She needs to work on a consistent off switch. She's also very barky and we're working on teaching her how to be more quiet.
I use all positive reinforcement training with all of my pets. Even when Pip's the most frustrating dog in the world, +R is the best method for her. It's amazing what she's capable of!
