Sky's Training (Dealing With Fearful Dogs)

Those of you that read this (which I’m guessing is few and far between) will remember sky from an early post, she was a shy, timid, shepherd mix who would shrink to the back of her cage and growl menacingly at anyone who dared pass.

Well Sky baby has come six ways from Sunday! She will still bark at intrusions but she has become a new dog! She wags her tail when I enter her kennel, no more ferocious growling and hackles raise, she goes out into the play yard more than willingly and loves to be around the people she knows and trusts!

It isn’t it to say that Sky is completely cured of her lack of confidence, no she will still need an owner willing to work with her on her doggie etiquette. Someone who knows how to be gentle but firm. Most people want to coddle a dog like Sky, try to make it better like you would a child. But dogs are not children, when a dog is scared, coddling it will only reenforce the behavior, making it an annoying if not dangerous trait. Ignoring scared behavior is the best, correcting aggressiveness caused by fright is more prudent that talking to the dog like a baby.

If you have the time and room in your home and heart to give Sky a chance please come on down to the Huron Humane Society, have a volunteer put Sky out in the yard and see what she’s all about!


  1. Hmmm; your dog is looking like my blacky.It is puppy and I got train him by .They are very good trainer in the town.I'm very happy to them.

  2. This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.

  3. I think that what you typed made a bunch of sense. But,
    what about this? suppose you were to write a killer post
    title? I ain't saying your content isn't solid., however what if you
    added a post title that makes people desire more?
    I mean "Sky's Training (Dealing With Fearful Dogs)" is kinda boring.
    You might glance at Yahoo's front page and note how they create article headlines to grab viewers interested. You might add a video or a pic or two to get people excited about what you've
    got to say. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.
