    Default Human emotions that bother dogs?

    Other than the usual such as happiness, frustration & fear, what else can bother a dog? I ask because of tonight's events: I stood next to hubby while he fed Chubbs, for 2 reasons.

    1. to see if hubby did anything different than me

    2. If Chubbs would still shake with me there

    Answers: hubby and I feed Chubbs pretty much the same. He barely shook. So I took over since the food was almost gone. Chubbs was shaking so much ya could hear his teeth chattering (and hubby was still there.) What's wrong with me?

    I'm not afraid of Chubbs. I'm sick which doesn't help my mood.

    Illness, depression, nervousness... any and all emotions can impact the dogs beahvior - good or bad. It could also be that he does nto have as much respect for you as he does hubby --- work in progress.

    @binxrexchubbs I have never had this happen-wish I knew the solution-but I have spoken to several people who had used a Thundershirt, when they have fearful dogs.Do you think this would be a possiblilty? Try having him wear a Thundershirt? What do you EBN ers think about that? @brutus77 @bullmama @ddnene @Davidh @2BullyMama

    The possibility of no respect? Well that's def not good and adds to the issue even more.

    no it is all the same --- keep hand feeding and project confidence ... it will all fall in place, TIME and PATIENCE!

    I think you just need to try and relax as much as possible. He is picking up on every emotion you have. I lived this believe me. When we first adopted frankie he had a bad habit of getting over excited and he would jump and bite. He did this to everyone but me. My husband would yell and pin frankie down until he stopped. Frankie would pick up on my husbands negative energy and would just get worse. I had to leash him to calm him down. This lead to many many fights between us because I was trying to explain this was not a good way of handling him. If frankie tried to pull this crap with me, he was immediately put into a down stay position and I calmly talked to him about manners. Lol. I swear he understood. My husband finall realized he needed to chill out and not get nervous or upset and it changed the whole way frankie reacted to him. Even if you dont think you are feeling anxious or negative, they pick up on the littlest things.

    They do pick up every emotion we feel, so as others have said, try to relax as much as possible and don't think about him being upset and try that. Plus a Thundershirt may help too.
