QUOTE (JMM @ Aug 26 2009, 09:49 PM) Thank you, Jackie. Excellent information. I can really relate to the information given in regard to separation anxiety and choosing the right professionals.

I must say that the worst mistake my husband and I made ... was choosing a well known training franchise, to come into our home, to help us work with Snowball on his anxiety issues. It ended up to be the worst experience. I have pictures of when we were instructed by one of the trainers (a husband and wife team who gave us completely different instructions for Snowball ... which was a read flag right there) to leave him alone for an hour in his crate. When we came home ... Snowball was completely soaked, shaking, and confused looking. We were given even more upsetting instructions. If you saw the pictures, you would see why I cried when I saw him. Needless to say, we fired the trainers. But, the damage was already done. When we showed the pictures to Dr. Krisi ... she referred us to a well known vet behaviorist in our area. Dr. Reich's observance of Snowball (for over six hours in one day, in our home) lead us on a completely different path in how to learn and help Snowball with his separation anxiety. Although it has taken a lot of devotion and baby steps to help Snowball ... it is paying off more every day.

I guess what I am trying to share here is that a hard lesson was learned in how important it is to learn how to find the best help for our precious babies. I thought because this company is well known ... that this would be best for Snowball. We did this without getting feedback from Dr. Krisi first.

Again, I think this article that Jackie provided is excellent.

Hi, thanks for that. Now that Rocky is almost 7 months, we are taking him to a group obedience class. The instructor told me I can also stay for the puppy class. Do you think two classes in one night may be too much for him? He is still barking at other dogs passing by on walks. I've been walking him every night. He seems happy to go and if there is a neighbor outside he immediately barks and wants to go over to them.
