Beth and to the team. Rescuing the Lab is a wonderful thing you're doing. Both of my dogs are rescues. My collie Radar was terrified of people when I got him. It took a lot of time and work to change that but it was so worth it. I have some resources that were useful for me. The first is a book "Help for the Fearful Dog" by Nicole Wilde. There are also two websites. The first http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/shy-k9s /. The other one is http://fearfuldogs.com/. Good Luck . Wliberty
Hiya! I'm Beth and I'm new to SP and here in this group. Just wanted to say good morning to all and I hope everyone has a great day. I actually don't have a dog yet but am in the process of adopting a stray black lab named Lady who hangs out at our local non-commercial airport where my hubby takes flying lessons! She was abused and is real skittish so I go several times a week with treats to help earn her trust. So far so good! Anyways, I will keep you guys posted on how this turns out... wish me luck b/c she SO deserves a great furever home,
