My corgidor (Corgi/Lab Mix) is afraid of everyone but me, my kids, and husband. We got her from a rescue center that didn't know anything about her past. They think she was abused. She has been with us for more than 2 yrs and she still is scared of everyone that comes to our house. Anyone have a suggestion, or solution to my problem? She does get along with our other dog.
Sounds like the poor thing has a bit of anxiety. You can get medication to treat it, but i've never personally given it to my dog. Recently i bought a thundershirt to try and help with my dog's anxiety and i've noticed a bit of a difference. Some of the testimonials i've seen show really severely anxious dogs have a very calming experience after putting them on. I'm still not 100% sold on it, but my dog's anxiety isn't constant...just when there's storms, fireworks, when we leave her in the car and she has a bad case of reactive barking. Even though i'm not sure how effective it is, I really think it's worth a try if you don't want to medicate your dog... After all, i didnt want to medicate mine :) Hope you figure out a solution!
