UPDATE – Harry is responding to clicker training and seems a bit more relaxed on his walks. He still gets upset when another dog gets too close, but we are working with him to overcome his fears. He has accepted other dogs and people into his foster home and loves to play out in the garden with them. We think he would do well with another calm, sociable dog who can show him how to cope in the outside world. New owners would need to have a good understanding of fear reactivity and how to deal with it.
Harry is enjoying life in his foster home, he loves his quiet, country walks, playing with his foster sister and having cuddles on the sofa. Harry is full of energy and will run around the garden with a tennis ball or soft toy, he will chase the pigeons and squirrels away too. Harry is clean in the house, chipped, castrated and up to date with his vaccinations and flea treatments.
Harry has some fear of the world outside his safe environment, he does not like off lead dogs running around, he can get quite reactive in a busy park or places where there are a lot of dogs for this reason we muzzle him when out. However, he is quite happy to meet other dogs in his safe space and will play chase me games with them. We are working hard to help him with his fears.
