My puppy is so terrified of my fiance, when he comes home from work to let the puppy outside, the puppy will pee right where he is at. The puppy also never moves if my fiance has him in his arms. When I am around it's a whole different story. The puppy will play and run around and be a normal puppy, even if my fiance is around. The puppy will not let me out of his sight either.
Is there something that we can do to help out this situation? By the way it's a yorkie, if that has anything to do with it?
Hi. I have a yorkie too named Lacy. I am also a member of Yorkietalk.com (myfairlacy) and have seen you and your fiance's posts on there. No one is going to be able to help you here without knowing the full story, and believe me people on yorkietalk are a thousand times nicer than people on terrificpets will be. I really think you two were making a little progress with the suggestions of YT members. I know you felt a little offended but most people truly wanted to help you so I hope you go back to YT for more help - I think you'll learn a lot and people there truly do care about Tanner (myself included).
I didn't realize Tanner was so cared of your fiance. I thought he was getting better with being scared of him?
My account on yorkie talk was actually deleted. I am no longer a member because I mentioned that I didn't want to be part of a board that had someone who didn't want to respond to any of my posts just because of what Chris did. I was offended. I didn't do anything to deserve that kind of treatment.. But anyways.. Chris is getting better with Tanner. Ever since I posted that thread Tanner actually came to Chris and it was a huge step! Tonight, Tanner was laying on Chris for a while that was also a new thing and huge!! I think what we're doing is working and Tanner is adapting great! We have switched to pee pads also and he does just as good on them as newspapers. Although he seems to poop in his bed.. I can't figure this one out? But that's not always. Anyways.. I remember you from YT and thanks for being one of the nice ones!
I'm sorry your account got deleted. I don't remember you saying anything that would warrent getting deleted. I'm glad Tanner is doing better with your fiance. He just needs to keep working with him. Since Tanner has a tendency to be afraid of him, he really needs to try to keep it positive at all times with him and probably not be the one to discipline much until Tanner is more used to him. I would just continue to get him to play with Tanner, give him treats, talk real sweetly to him and pet him and all. I know once he said sometimes he'd wait to let Tanner out until when you got home, but being the one to let Tanner out might help Tanner to get more attached to him. And he'd have an hour of one on one time with Tanner too.
Anyways, hope it continues to get better. Did you end up getting an X-pen too? I think he'd probably do good in one of those since you two are gone a lot. Also, a lot of people tend to not read this section of the forum. You'll probably get more response next time if you post in Dog Talk. I hope Terrific Pets can help you out. Just FYI - members on here can be a lot quicker to judge and hold nothing back. Sometimes you just have to let things roll of though and listen to the helpful things. You'll learn a lot on here if you'll just stick with it. Most people do try to be helpful here
