Hi all - I have a 4 year old rat terrier named Guinness. He's a shelter dog and has a handful of neuroses (separation anxiety, whining/barking at other dogs during walks, etc). I found this forum not to seek help with obedience issues, though I'm glad to see there's a thread, but because he's a ridiculously smart boy and I think he's bored. I want to learn new tricks to teach him! I'm pretty sure if I can strengthen our relationship and help him refocus on following my cues, his anxieties will decrease and we'll be able to go out in public with less stress. I'm looking forward to being a part of this community!
