Mac is a two-year-old Doberman who barks a lot, doesn’t like his kennel, rams the door, has separation anxiety, and is afraid of children and loud noises. His guardians also wanted me to help him stop jumping on people and stop barking at dogs.
Despite their gigantic size, Giant Schnauzers can make excellent watchdogs, and this can make them an excellent addition to a home. Their intelligence and determination make them excellent watchdogs and they can be useful in various jobs. Giants are large, powerful dogs and require strict training. Giants are also good with children and other pets in the home, making them a great choice as a family watchdog.
The double coat of a Giant Schnauzer has a dense, wiry, and harsh texture, so you will need to brush and trim it regularly. Because the coat is so long, it can be difficult to keep it clean and washing your Giant Schnauzer’s face after every meal is essential. You’ll also want to groom his ears, as Giant Schnauzers can get very dirty if left outside for an extended period of time.
How training will boost your dogs’ confidence
When faced with something scary, our dogs tend to focus on that and ignore everything else. I am the same. If a big scary scorpion falls on my desk, I will get up. I’m not going to finish watching that funny cat video, not until that thing is gone.
Our dogs do the same.
The scary thing becomes their focus, and until you can divert their attention, that big scary thing will be the only thing they’ll focus on. Our job is to help show them that what’s scary isn’t so scary after all, and one of the best ways to do that is to redirect their attention.
The Nature of Border Collies
Border Collies were bred to be energetic, intelligent, hard-working dogs with an instinct to herd sheep. These highly intelligent and trainable canines have an athletic prowess rarely seen in other dog breeds. Also, Border Collies are even-tempered and eager to please. And if socialized early on, border collies get along with other dogs and even cats.
Border collies make excellent family pets if they get enough exercise. These black and white athletic canines respond well to training and praise and are extremely fast learners. These traits make Border Collies loyal pets that thrive on companionship and stimulation. Also, because dogs have a natural herding instinct, they protect their family and will protect children.
Why is my dog afraid of everything?
Often we can’t know exactly why your dog is afraid of things.
There is a widespread myth that fearful dogs were abused, but often they were not. This ties into the «it all depends on how you raise them» myth.
