This was a very helpful quiz! I have so many questions on the fear my dog has. What to do and when to do it. So thanks for the information my animal loving people.

I enjoyed reading some of the answers for a fearful pet. Our Corgi is 1 year old next week. A few months ago, my husband accidentally pulled a chain attached to a ceiling fan in the peak of our home. She went running off. Now she won't even come into that room unless she runs past it fast. This is our kitchen/living area where we spend all of our time. She just goes and hides under a bed. She is still a puppy and I want her to enjoy being in that room. It never bothered her before that. A veterinarian's assistant told me to block the room off and let her get adjusted to it, but its too large of an area that also has an addition attached. Is it a good idea to tie her up out there when we are there so she can see its alright? The fan isn't even on when she does this. HELP! I need some answers. Thank you.

All of this makes sense to me. You have to be alpha pack leader or your dog will never follow your lead.

You just have to find a way that works with your dog, each dog is different

Obedience training works for some. I foster a lot, and am not blessed with endless time with these dogs to overcome everything. Sometimes I have to resort to sedation for thunderstorms/fireworks, or pick them up and carry them past something they're fearful of (and then note this in their adoption file). Sorry, gang, but such is the work of a rescuer.

Sometimes I wonder if the people who write this stuff actually HAVE a dog?? Some of these things they say to do are easier said than done.

The only thing that freaks my dog out is slippery floors because he fell pretty hard one time.

why after signing in- you can't find this
a bit ridiculous. I liked this article and had to come back in after signing off to find it.
