Introducing Remi the scared dog

Post by sjclarkey on Tue Jul 07 2015, 14:15

Hi Everyone

I have a beautiful 4 year old Staffy Cross called Remi. She was rescued from Battersea Dogs Home in Feb 2014. She is a lovely gentle dog but suffers from severe anxiety. She spends most of her day sleeping and is scared to go outside. When we first got her she would go out for walks but after 9 months she started to tremble and would not get out of the car or let us walk her off our driveway. I am really hoping to get some support and advice from any other members who have anxious dogs. I feel as though I have tried everything and she still looks so sad most of the time and it breaks my heart.

Hi ya, welcome to the Forum Big Grin

What a great picture, I can see that Remi is really loved there. My Flo stayed at Hotel Battersea before she came home with us Wink , thank you for the rescue.

I would have said to let Remi settle but this has started after 9 months of being with you which is strange, can you remember if there has been an incident that has upset her ? Another thing to consider is if she is sore anywhere which makes walking painful ?

i'm just covering the basics which I'm sure you already have thought of. My Flo can have episodes where she doesn't want to walk and I have even resorted to picking her up so that she gets the message that we are going however much she sits or lays down (the neighbours all laugh at this) but when we get to the park she loves it. What's Remi's reaction at the park ?

if you can get some background this may be helpful to determine what has triggered her fear and anxiety perhaps battersea can recommend someone to help you there was a paul o grady show done with battersea and the dog was called whisper good luck.
