My rescue dog won t leave her crate when we leave for work, and Ive always heard that this is a symptom of PTSD for rescue dogs. She doesnt even bark when she is outside in the house. This behavior can be fixed with a lot of patience and time. Does anyone have any suggestions?

ANSWER:

Puppy mill dogs get used to being crated and then don t leave until the time they are taken away for shipping and/or sale. It could be a symptom of many things. Some are very young and have very simple reasons for not wanting to leave. I suspect that your dog has been neglected and/or abused. I would consider a behavior specialist. Good luck!

QUESTION:

What can I do to help a nervous dog be calmer when I'm leaving?

I got my dog a few months ago, and I'm having a really hard time teaching him to be calm when I'm leaving. Every time I get ready to leave, he acts nervous, and when I try to talk to him about it, he just gets even more nervous.

ANSWER:

Get him a "leave me alone" cue. Every time you start to leave, take the cue and ignore him. It will only take a few times before he gets the message. Also, try taking him out in his crate for a few minutes before you leave, just so he's getting used to being alone and can relax. Good luck!

QUESTION:

My dog is a 7 year old lab mix who is a rescue. He has been in rescue for his whole life. He has lived in a house for most of his life and has been in kennels for a couple of years now. He is a good dog but is very nervous around people and other dogs. He also has a bad habit of eating my shoes, and is constantly trying to escape out of the house. I can't find an answer to these problems and I really don't know what else to do.

ANSWER:

He needs a more positive association with people, and a less fearful one. I recommend obedience classes for dogs, and getting into an obedience class. It would be a good idea to get him a crate, and take him to a shelter to see what they think of his bad behavior. It is possible that he needs more stimulation in his life and more mental and physical exercise.

QUESTION:

what causes a dog to bark or meow for no apparent reason. he only does it when i leave him alone, for example when im on my way out the door he starts to howl, the next day i come home and im still walking in the door and hes already started he did the same thing last night too, then last night after i finished i told him goodnight and he started howling agn then went to meowing i think he was hungry, but i fed him at 8 this morning, he did the same thing, is there something he could be feeling or wanting. the only thing i can think of is that he wants me to leave him alone for some reason, im just not sure what that reason could be.

ANSWER:

it could be a number of things - he could be lonely or just wanting attention. Sometimes it can be a cry for help. It could be a fear or a frustration he is feeling and is trying to express in this way.

There is a simple and easy test you could try - take the collar off, and leave him - he will stop. This will tell you if he is feeling agitated and if this is just a short term situation or something more serious.

If it continues, he may be having a hard time and be frustrated and confused - and then it may not be possible to resolve the issue.

QUESTION:

I have a 12 year old cocker spaniel who is scared of my neighbors, he barks at them and they do not come over. How can I get him to stop?

ANSWER:

Make sure they know he's a bit nervous of other dogs and that he barks as a warning to them and their dogs to get out of the way.

Some people may think this makes it worse but I don't.

Have you had an obedience class for your dog?

I've got a cocker who's about to start, she's always had a fear of other dogs and a bit of fear towards people. I think this is partly because we've got a family who used to own a dog and didn't give her a chance to really get used to a dog who was her friend.

So, it's really hard to get her to overcome this fear.

What I do is I walk her around the neighborhood on a lead, to make it obvious to her neighbours that I am the one in charge.

That way, she learns that I am not scary. Then she barks because she's a bit nervous (she doesn't really mean to), but the neighbours aren't going to come over.

I've found that this has really helped her.

QUESTION:

What does a nervous dog need in a home and/or a person's personality?

What does a nervous dog need in a home and/or a person's personality?

ANSWER:

Nervous dogs need an owner that can and will give them some TLC. Most of the time a dog is a lot more fearful than the owner thinks. You need to remember you can't "catch" fear. What you can do is take time to be a calming force for your dog. For example, take time to walk your dog and play with him and spend some quality time with him. A nervous dog is a needy dog and needs to have a person that can give him or her that TLC, especially when it is time for bed.
