Freddie is 4 years old
Yes he's been neutered
Tried so far:
Took him to puppy classes at the vets surgery to socialise him but he just hid under the chair and wouldn't take any treats or go near any other dog.
Driven him to remote places (i.e.woods) and tried to walk him - he just pulls and pants
When I trained my previous dog we were given an attachment like a clip to a lead, this was attached to his collar to get used to the weight of a lead and I walked him round the garden.
Played a video with noises - cars, sirens, motorbikes and fireworks - when he is in the house or garden he is not bothered about these noises. if I drop something in the kitchen he jumps a mile
Obedience Training: I have trained him with treats (mild cheese and also shop treats and ones I made myself, learnt from previous dog trainer)
He comes to me when I call him
He sits on command
He doesn't jump up - we say off if he does ever do this and gets down
He has been taught not to bark when the doorbell rings
He obeys the 'Away' command if we are eating and he sits looking at us.
Car: shakes and never relaxes
Doesn't walk well apart from the garden - I have a very big garden
Had him since he was 12/13 weeks old - he was 1 of 5 puppies the owner has the mother and father and they were all together when I got him. He was very lively and was fine with the other puppies but when I bought him home he his under the bed or stayed in his dog bed.
reassure him - yes I try to do this if he doesn't pull etc I reward. I also sat on the doorstep with him on the lead as I live on a fairly busy road and slowly edged him near the pavement but he just runs rings round me and gets the lead tied round me or tries to pull back to the house. I have also tried to leave the house from different doors but we get to a point and he anchors down.
