  1. Hey guys! We just wanted to give a very positive update on Senner 2 months in! He has come out of his shell massively and now is a calm, happy and confident dog in the house. Thank you all for your help! We did a mix of different bits and bobs but here are some of the things that helped the most incase anyone else with similar issues reads this! - Gave him lots of time. - Didn’t walk him for around 3 weeks which really helped him settle and be confident with us. - Eating his tea outside did help a bit with the road noise. - Started walking again gradually a
  2. Thank you! I think maybe we did sort of have a presure to walk him 2x20m walks a day but youre 100% right, as long as hes not restless we can take a step back and just focus on making him as comfortable as possible and as happy as possible.
  3. Thank you! We do have a garden that he Potters around not on his lead, would you recommend putting his lead on and doing little circles? Thanks! Ill have a read! Thank you! I think we panicked because we felt so stuck we couldnt get anywhere and then when he froze in the road! What do you do when Max freezes and wont go anywhere? Would you suggest picking him up at that point?
  4. Hey guys! So we thought after Saturday we were at least stepping in the right direction! We took him back to that park on the Sunday and he started freezing and freezing and no matter what we did it didnt help.

Yesterday I drove about 200m from the house and while he didnt want to go the usual way he did walk past the house towards a little nature reserve wed been to the previous weekend and then was fine walking
  5. Thanks guys thats really helpful and reassuring that youre both saying its quite normal! He goes out to pee and poop like a champ and hasnt had any behaviours that are destructive so I think it is just some patience! Normally hes pretty food motivated but when he gets nervous and freezes there is just nothing that seems to break it. Yesterday and today we got him into the car and took him to a big county park which he enjoyed! Today was a tad bad timing as it was park run so like 200 joggers descended on us at once! But he coped marvellously! We also stopped about 300m from home and my Part
  6. Hello, Were new and have just rehomed a 4.5 year old black and white Boy called Senner. Hes recently retired. Weve brought him into a 4 bed detached home with a small to medium garden. No other pets or kids, just me and my partner. We knew he was a bit shy when we first adopted him but were just hoping for some advice. He has taken to his bed in the kitchen immediately, this is his safe space, and its very difficult to get him away from there. He doesnt seem to recognise his name, making any training difficult. When we first got him 2 weeks ago you could put his lead on and this would get
