After trying every trick in the book (thanks, everyone, for your suggestions), one thing has FINALLY worked to stop Abbey from biting and growling at me (it had gotten to the point where I couldn't even pick her up or play with her). As suggeste...

Tara - oh my gosh, that's so funny about the poison ivy incident. And you're right - I don't think Shelties in general are really "lap" dogs. Mine that died a month ago never did like to be "held" - she just got too big for it, and was too high ene...

Thank you, thank you to everyone!! You're helping me to feel that I'm not all alone in this. She's done better today, and I'm using a lot of everyone's suggestions. I'm determined to keep working hard with her - I think she's very bright and smart...

Frostygirl, your comments have helped immensely. No, I haven't heard of everything you suggested - I'll have to try those things. I'm taking a "time out" for myself right now, and my new motto is "Tomorrow is another day." It's hard sometimes, but...

I know I've posted on this topic before, but tonight's incident (which I'll get to in a minute) just makes me want to vent for a second. My almost-3-month-old Sheltie has been overly playful since I first got her, and I've used every technique in ...

Even more great suggestions - thanks!! Tara - it's so weird that both our Shelties had liver cancer and died about the same age. Also, I had a "personal" attachment to mine, as I bought her when I was first married, and then I got divorced 8 yrs ...

Thanks for the advice - this is such a great board to come and discuss "techniques" for these different issues. Tara - My 11-year-old Sheltie had to be put down over a month ago - she had liver cancer that had spread, and she was extremely ill. ...

Onehappygirl - that's a real possibility, about the car sickness. I haven't seen any foaming at the mouth, or throwing up, but she breathes rapidly, and seems to salivate more in the car. I'll definitely ask the vet. Thanks for the heads up!

Those are great suggestions - I'll start trying them. That's not the only time I crate her (she seems mostly fine in the crate when it's not in the car - I think it's the noise and movement of the car that frightens her). On that recent trip I took...

My 10-week-old Sheltie is terrified of the car. There's no particular reason (she hasn't had a bad experience in a car or anything). I put her in her crate and strap the crate securely to the seat with the seat belt for safety - she usually lik...
