ANXIOUS DOG TIPS
Cola is a 2-3 yr old toy poodle who was rescued earlier this year. His new parents describe him as an “anxious, nervous and territorial dog”. He’s defensive with his older brother (a 10 year-old Pekepoo) too.
Dogs who never had leadership or communication are often like this. Poor Cola lives in fear and doesn’t understand that people are here to protect him and he doesn’t have to keep fending for himself.
We’ll work on building a trusting relationship & increasing communication between Cola and his new parents, and teaching Cola to better control his emotions. He’ll soon be the calmer, confident, happy dog that his rescuing family wants to see!
