PLEASE HELP! Can't Post

Hi, my name is Nadia and I have a one year old Mongrel called Scotch. He's a neutered male. I adopted him from the independent pet rescuers. Scotch is VERY scared of people. VERY. Everytime someone comes too close (about 10 feet away) he starts pooping and peeing. He won't bite the person, but will be VERY scared. Sometimes he's even scared of me when I wear something different. But once I got him used to my cousin and the next day, he completely forgot her and pooped again. Please help me. Any advice is appreciated. A cheap trainer is good too.

how long has he been with you,,,there are a lot of factors which might have contributed to this problem...give us more information on where you got him from, how old is he and how long had he been staying with you.

Hai Nadia,

I have similar problem like you except that my Pluto do not poo..but he pees. He pees when he is too excited or scared. However,when a stranger gets near him ..he will show his 'takut look' and hide behind me..or under anything...as long it can fit his body and hide.

About the peeing problem.. we try not to make him excited or scared. and when he does we do not acknowledge by not touching him or so..we let him cool down ....

As for being timid. My trainer told me.Just ignore it. As the more we show our concern or acknwledge, it will be shown thru our body language, and he will think its alright..so,dont tell ppl ' yah..he is scared' just ignore ! When ppl tell u that, u just, give no comment. What I mean is, u do that, when the dog is around you lah..

I knw its easier to say, but susah to practise..especially when in public ..and when he keeps running away from ppl who wants to touch him...or..worst from ppl he see almost all the time...Pirate

This dog has gone through a bad past.. So he is very scared. May I know what do you do when he gets scared? How often do you spend time with him?

Well, I followed what they say and ignore him, but his tail still goes in between his legs. As for spending time with him, since I have school, before and after school I will play with him and pet him and feed him and such and after I come back from school, I take him for a walk,everyday.

have u ever hugged him? and let him be familiar with your body scent...it is better if he is familiar with your scent rather than how u look like...try to hug him close to your body everyday...just like when u hug a teddy bear.

I do hug him actually. Multiple times a day. He doesn't mind, but he gets shocked when he sees me in something different, so I give him my hand to smell. He smells it and runs away. I'm thinking about bringing him to one of the trekking trips at Gasing Hill to socialize him. Do you think it's a good idea? Because if it's humans with dogs, he tends to ignore the person and go towards the dog, he gets along great with other dogs.

Yeah, I joined the jungle trekking to socialise my dog, Daisy as well. She gets along with humans but not strange dogs. Even a peke can freak her out, haa haa!!

Come join laa... Smile

He seems to be getting better. Since he was tired during the trek, he just sat down and let everybody pet him. I think he was too tired to care.
