    Default Eek - Did I hear something?

    Pazelee is a scaredy cat. I think she is even afraid of her own shadow. LOL! Seriously, a bag rattles she jumps, a car engine is running she stops dead in her tracks, a kid on a bike rides by she's backing up, and on and on and on. Does anyone have some advice for breaking her of being so afraid of everything?

    Thanks,

    Tracie

    Eh. well, it's a Bulldog thang

    Our girl, Banks was very dominate and not afraid of any dog or human -- wave an empty trash bag and she could not get behind a couch fast enough -- inanimate objects are the devil

    Yup same here.
    Lily is the boss in our house but she runs for the hills when she hears any loud noise.

    Both boys are scared of butterflies, we cannot move anything in the house, plants and when the doorbell rings they jump up and run down the hall. It's nuts

    One of my boys is tough as nails when it comes to other dogs no matter what the demeanour and size, but gets anxious when we go to the groomer to get a nail trim. My other guy, Punkin, is fearless. He'll have a stare down with a bee and try to snatch it with his mouth. A bee!

    Henry and Clyde are that way. Macon is older and could care less. Henry is terrified of trash bags and plastic sacks. When he was a pup he wouldn't quit chewing on the bottom step of the stairs. He rounded the corner off. I tried everything and he wouldn't stop. So I put a plastic bag on it and put a bottle there so it would stay. He never went near it again. Lol Loud noises and new things he freaks over. If there is a dog or animal or human outside that he doesn't know, he's fearless and protective. It's super cute when he tries to be tough. Clyde is afraid of shadows and new objects. He is drawn to anything that stings. He will play with a wasp until he gets stung and then plays some more. Big dogs? He will pummel. I think he would fight a bear. Rootbeer, the lab (you know, hunting dog) is so afraid of guns it's sad. If husband gets a gun out to clean or shoot his 90 pound butt is in my lap or hiding behind my legs. It's so funny what they are afraid of. I just sweet talk them and give them some lovin and they usually calm down. At first I tried to introduce the feared object to Henry. Let him know it wouldn't hurt him kind of stuff. It didn't work. As he got older, he's still afraid, but not terrified.

    All of you made my day. It is so great to read that Pazelee isn't the only one that is petrified by stupid stuff. I'm trying to get her to snap out of it, but we'll see how this goes.

    I have a friend with two rescue greyhounds (retired racing dogs) and both are quite anxious. she swears by her DAP diffuser. (dog appeasing pheromone)

    I bought some of the spray to try on amazon. as I also have a nervous little guy.

    Apparently you can get DAP in a collar, diffuser, or spray.
    It might be a load of crap and totally useless, but I thought the price was decent and I'd give it a try.

    My guy Thor will try to murder other dogs, and defend the house till the death, unless whoever comes in happens to have a cardboard box, then it's game over. Taco would probably lick them to death, if he could make it past the self rising lid on the trash can without getting toooo spooked.
