Hi! I adopted my 4yr old Aussie mix, Edie, this past September. She is loved and adored by all. Favorites include sleeping on the couch, running, and safari themed toys. She is a wonderful dog and we love her very much. Unfortunately, she is horribly afraid of other dogs so we are currently working on her on-leash dog-dog agression and showing her that other dogs aren't all bad (she doesn't have a single doggie friend yet ). She also has this lovely habit of gently "stroking" our faces when you are petting her. Any advice as to how to get her to stop pawing at our faces is greatly appreciated! We've tried yelping and walking away, making her go away when she does it, and placing her paws on the ground and saying "paws off!". However, nothing seems to stick. We're trying not to use any physical punishments with her as she is extremely sensitive to being reprimanded. Thanks! We look forward to learning lots of fun new tricks!
