    Bang Head At my witts end

    Advertisements
    I need help guys. I'm about to lose it. I'm doing everything the books say to do. I watch dog whisperer.
    My dog is the worst dog in the world. I can't take it anymore. She refuses to listen to anyone. She has horrible seperation anxiety. She screams as soon as she looses sight of me. We've been trying to crate train her for almost 5 weeks and she still screams bloody murder. We don't let her out when she screams.
    She's a terror when people come over. She ate my sis-in-laws earring!!! She bites everyone and bites HARD. I yelp and she just goes in for another bite.

    I'm not feeling well so this is just taking its toll on me.

    I just don't know what else to do.

    Maybe talk to your vet about putting her on some kind of meds anxiety. What kind of dog is she?

    P.S. I've tried to dog whisperer tricks with my lab (for barking) and it doesn't work for us. He just got some kind of 6th sense I don't have. Maybe you can write him and he can come out and help!!

    well if you watch the Dog Whisperer and believe in his training then the problem is most likely not the dog but the two of you. We also watch and read his books as well as follow is training and discipline techniques. They work great for us. I would look deeper into the situation. How old is the dog. where did it come from. any past history that could be affecting it? How much exercise is the dog getting. Like as in walking, how long, how often.

    Yea, maybe she has a medical condition! My sister used to have a cat that needed Prozac for anxiety.

    Shes a french bulldog. We got her about 4 weeks ago. Shes a puppy.

    We take her for walks around our place, but because she's not finished with her shots, we cant take her to training classes for probably another 4 weeks or so.

    Its just so overwhelming. Espcially now that I'm sick. I try to train her and show her I'm the alpha, but she could careless it seems.
