Jan Trabuco Canyon, CA 3/25/2011 2:41:44 PM Our puppy is now 16 wks old and is overly frightened of so many noises. We got her at 7.5 wks and she came from a breeder who had 6 adult dogs (kept in cages) and 10 littermates, so how she became afraid of noise is a mystery to us! She has been extremely hard to housetrain because of hearing other dogs in the neighborhood bark when she is taken into the back yard to potty. Our vet told us not to walk her due to parvo, until she had her 4th puppy shot, which we pushed up to 15th wk because we were afraid of missing the socialization window! Now she is almost impossible to walk because she stops and/or wants to run home with every car she hears. We try to distract her by getting her to run and that is the only way we've been able to get her to the local park. Once there she is fine, and gets along great with every dog she has met, but the walk down hasn't become any easier. Any other suggestions??
