Hi, hoping you can all help me. I have an 11 month nervous lab. Great at home, crate trained, toilet trained, sleeps very well. He is a nervous dog, skittish around certain things and so I feel I am tuned into his behaviour well. I’ve been to a trainer 4 times. He barks so loud around strangers, people who visit us and in public. My anxiety levels hit an all time high when he gets like this. I have tried clicker training as suggested but it simply doesn’t work, he’s stubborn and either wants the stranger to go away or for us to walk on. All I wanted was a friendly playful dog that people could pet and support us to look after him. I now feel like that’s never going to happen.
