If there is anyone out there who is a bit of a dog expert I would welcome some advice. Wrecks was a rescue dog and we have had him since he was 3 (we think, it's very uncertain about his exact age) now he is about 10/11. he has alot of fears and is afraid of alot, washing machines, fireworks, buses, anyone outside the family touching his head, lorries....I could go on! He feels safe at home and just lately is refusing to go out on a walk at all, he is not tempted by food and treats. It's such a shame, I'm even wondering whether he is getting a bit senile as he is ageing. Has anyone got any ideas how to manage this. We love him to bits but has had a difficult past. He has become my shadow recently and follows me from room to room, sitting right next to me....he's here now just next to me. I would really like to be able to walk with him again.
If you don't like frogs, look away now . . .
