OMG it was so funny, when she finally did get near it, I bumped it, BANG ! she started scooting so fast, her feet wouldnt get traction on the kitchen floor, it looked like Wild E Coyote - trying to get away from a falling boulder.... SPPPPIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

    Dang I wish I had that on video, I'd still be peeing my pants laughing!

    Yes! This my Lucy! Except for her food bowls, she's sure not afraid of those!

    She is afraid of sparkly paper too. At least it kept her out of the room while I was wrapping presents!

    Plastic / Trash bags definitely must be a DNA thing with EBD's, Dozer has gone from kinda scared to really curios about them. He is freaked out by the wind and what it blows around, has been since a young pup and not gotten much better no matter how much explaining or reassurance I give him. He is not scared; but fascinated by his shadow and shadows in general, also any kind of light.

    We call them "Light Bugs" when he chases them and doesn't understand why he can't catch it . It is like a daily thing, he's always finding new ones.

    I guess he is pretty brave overall, if he doesn't know a noise he barks LOUD and RUNS to the front door. That was really cute 25 lbs. or so ago, now when I'm half asleep and he is too with his head resting on my shoulder or leg and he springs off the couch and into action it can be dangerous .

    Only trash bags. Plastic bags from the store do not bother him but he runs like hell when he here a trash bag. I have even dropped one and he drug it off to play with or hide I am not sure which but is still afraid of them

    Trash bags, the dishwasher (although she wasn't afraid of the one in our last home...), loud motors/cars, and all the other ones mentioned.

    She is also scared of falling rain & snow. If it's ever raining or snowing we have to go outside with her otherwise she'll "go" on our welcome mat so she doesn't go past the roof overhang. Maybe she just doesn't like getting wet??

    I was playing fetch with Bella this evening and the Kong went into the dining room and knocked over a couple of folding chairs I have yet to put away. Granted, the noise was loud but it took a while for her to even go back into the room. Harley, our Yorkie, chased the Kong in there and Bella did not like giving it up. She got her courage back real quick when she saw Harley chase after it when it landed by the chairs again. Didn't want to give up her favorite toy

    Hi Lisa. I want to say that Chester is like my Bentley. Bentley is very OCD and if anything is out of place, Bentley will bark at it until the item is gone or he accepts it. For items that he is afraid of, we go up and touch while Bentley is looking and then he will sniff and then it might be ok. So essentially, my Bentley is like your Chester.

    FWIW, my Dozer was exactly like your Bentley is.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Our previous bully, Harley, who we got at 7 months was scaredie dog, I guess part of her nature. Matty not so much, introduced her to the steers across the creek yesterday and she stared for a while, then ran about 15' away and when I told her "it was ok", she came back, but was a little leery, but they are BIG. lol Took her over to socialize w/ my brothers rather large Boston Terrier, Matty showed no fear at all and played well.

    Reggie is exactly the same! He barks his little *** off at anything new. I left the mop in the kitchen one night, big mistake!
    He hates loud noises, bin bags, carrier bags, anything out of place, the vacuum cleaner.
    Although we are taking the advice of a trainer and, wherever possible, let him have the thing he's barking at. So with the mop I laid it on the kitchen floor and ignored him. He barked at it for a few minutes and then went back and forth sniffing, then he walked away. He's OK with it now if he sees it regularly. Too long and we go through it all again.

    But he is a nervous puppy. Walks are a nightmare because he hates traffic noise, double decker buses send him running straight back home so Kev has to pick him up & carry him

    Yep that is my Bentley except for the double-decker buses and carrying as I walk as far as I am willing to carry. Like you Bentley and Reggie are the same in many ways. Both are a work in progress. --rj
