Hi There, I adopted Zoe, my lab/whippet mix a little over two months ago. We've had our challenges (mainly stemming from her fearful and nervous personality) but she's amazing and the best dog I could have asked for. We've done a lot of positive reinforcement around some of her fears (like traffic noise in my NYC neighborhood and separation). I'm hoping to learn more about clicker training some of the basics (sit, down, drop it, and heel) and perhaps there are even some folks out there that have also worked with fearful/nervous dogs. Where we are now.....gotten over the big humps of separation anxiety and outdoor noise anxiety, she's super food motivated (will do anything for a piece of cheese), responds mostly to body language in close proximity but not to verbal commands alone.
