Re: What spooks your dog?


Tilly is spooked by cars because she was run over when about a year old and people running up behind us because of a a very close encounter one night with a flasher
(long story different thread one day)

Shady doesn't like howling type noise she just runs up stairs if she hears them

Only fireworks spook Cheeko out but alot of things spook Blu out. He's been attacked by a few dogs and just things in general happening to him at a young age but he seems to be slowly growing out of it. He couldn't care less about fireworks right enough!!

Pepper is pretty solid (although she doesn't like fireworks) but nearly jumped out of her skin the other day when a low flying parakeet squawked really loudly about 2 inches above us!!! Made me laugh.

Re: What spooks your dog?


Now lets see how long have you got

Small children,
Fireworks,
Clicker thing (as in clicker trainer),
Groups of teenagers/youths,
Ducks,
Enclosed spaces,
Windy weather when out walking,
Loud bangs,

Those are the things that have Jack quaking in his little boots, but there are loads of other things he doesn't like, like the shower being put on, as he thinks it bath time for him

Re: What spooks your dog?


Molly isn't too bad but she can be hit & miss in the sense that some days things will scare her but they won't another day!

Usually she is good with cars but when we walk to the next village over we have to walk down a main road with only a very small pavement & the cars whizz along down there so that scares her & we have to walk in the grass.

Sometimes she is scared of her own doggy bags But only if it is windy & they blow about. I've started having to get her to sit with her back to me when I pick up her mess because otherwise she starts bucking & trying to get out of her harness.

She is normally good with dogs but will occasionally get a bit nervous around larger breeds, especially if they're male.

Re: What spooks your dog?


Oh gosh...anything that makes even a slightly loudish noise?

Thunderstorms
Fireworks
Anything leaning against the wall that falls over
The dishes rattling as I pick them up to put them away
Our bathroom
Our basement
Dark, narrow hallways
Mirrors

I'm sure there's more. Dahlia's pretty sensitive.
