Fear-aggression in dogs. Thumperchick?
I didn't want to jack moondrake's thread about pet sitters, but noticed thumperchick mentioned that her dog no longer had fear-aggression.
I have a female dog (Jellybean) with this problem. It started when a female stray showed up. We adopted her (Penelope), and once she was feeling better and more confident, she started fighting with Jellybean. Eventually, it was a constant problem and they had to be kept separate until I could find a new home for Penelope. Ever since then, Jellybean is afraid of new dogs and very aggressive towards them.
Anyone with any tips on trying to help re-train a dog like this? I'd love to be able to take her on walks, to the beach, etc.
