Scared Of Feet


Recommended Posts

Yup, Wendy is not foot-friendly! She will give a little growl of displeasure if she's lying down and I try to pet her with my feet and will look offended and walk away if I try it when she's upright.

Just noticed your signature. It might have something to do with her racing name! "Lost footing" :hehe

Ace has always been this way...she is better as she has aged, but, when I first got her she didn't even like you to walk near her/over her - she always seemed worried she would get stepped on. I imagine somewhere along the line she was stepped on accidentally and it scared her. She will jump up and grumble as she walks away if you touch her with your feet. The others like for me to pet them with my feet :lol

you must have lots of fun trimming nails! desensitize him, feed him a special treat as you touch his pads. for some reason lightly touching the hair inbetween the pads often makes some dogs (all of mine- it's my husband's sport) CRAZY! felix hates foot contact, but w/ desensitization he's doing better. trimming nails is still quite a challenge, but i don't give in!
