I'm in MA, but not too far from CT. I travel to the New London area every once in awhile. My brother and his wife have a shop there.

@agilebasenji:

Oh that's a super start!!! How long have you two been training?

We started at 4 months. So about 6 months. We had to miss one 6 weeks session when we went to the National.

@lisastewart:

Very nice, I wish there were places in our area to train, it looks like the dogs love it.

Ariel and I both have a blast 🙂

It's hard to tell without seeing for myself whether you are describing stalking other dogs (which Ariel does all the time quite playfully) or more of a shying kind of behavior. I had a male who was very well- socialized who became fearful at about 6 months old. He had entered a fear period and had a mildly bad experience from which he never fully recovered. I neutered him, which did not seem to improve his behavior (which was in no way extreme), but I knew I would never want to breed such a sensitive dog.

He was a wonderful pet, but after some attempts to bring him around, I just accepted that he would always need some extra time to get used to strangers.

My advice: Don't neuter early due to this behavior and don't push him into situations that seem to cause a fearful response. Wait out the fear stage and then try those situations again later.

GL!

Ariel and I had some ringtime this morning to practice agility. I think she's pretty good for a 6 month old with a novice (in agility) owner:) I posted it on my FB page, link below.
