What is your main reason for joining the group?

While I don't know the specifics of Sophie's background, I know she probably did not have a healthy and positive puppyhood. Jeni has worked with me on Sophie and I'd like to continue to learn how to deal with a fear agressive dog.

Please give us some background on your dog(s). Age? Where did the dog come from? What past training have you done with your dog?

I adopted Sophie about 1.5 years ago. She is a small Aussie mix (30 lbs). She is VERY fear agressive and though I love her to death, she frustrates me daily. In addition to training with Jeni, I am in contact with a behavioral vet. Sophie is now on 2 medications and has just started SAM-E supplements to see if they ease her anxiety. I don't know if Sophie came from a puppy mill, however both Jeni and my behavioral vet have said Sophie was probably not socialized properly as a puppy or has had some very bad experiences.

Does your dog come from a puppy mill or hoarding situation?

Hello, my name is Paloma and I'm the owner of a 4-5 yr old Aussie mix, Sophie. I am a huge dog lover and volunteer regularly for Log Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation, based out of Arlington, VA.
