I absolutely love my difficult child dog. She has major anxiety issues. She barks when someone sets a glass down, thats how bad it is. But what really gets on my reserve nerve is that we cannot have company over because she will not leave them alone. She is fine when they are sitting or laying down, but if they get up, she runs up to them like she might bite them. She barks at them too. She will let them pet her and she wags her tail, but I can see that look in her eye like she might snap at any moment. I could never ever bare to put her to sleep for this behavior and I know no one would adopt her and tolerate this. We can't afford a trainer, they want hundreds of dollars. I wonder if the vet would put her on anxiety medications and if that would even help. My kids both have friends over this weekend and I keep her away from them, either in my bedroom or in the kitchen behind a baby gate. I don't know what to do at this point. and her latest weird behavior is that if she pees on the carpet or the tile (which she does when she gets in trouble), she will furiously rub her own nose back and forth in it! why is she doing that??? leave it to me to pick the one major difficult child out of the litter. by the way, she is 3 yrs old and a japanese spitz.
