I have a 3 yr old Eskie rescue. He has come along way since we adopted him 7 months ago. He has really gained confidence through taking him to day care and obedience training.
I know the breed trait is to be cautious of strangers, but even after a few minutes of standing next to someone he continues to bark at them. Not a mean bark just a worry bark.
But somethingâ€™s cause him to bark or even try snip at people. For example someone appoached him i let him "Say Hello" he goes and sniffs them walk back to me, he will do it again. then come back to me a 2nd time. then just bark.
Is anyone else's Eskie this stand offish with other people???? If so how did you try to work on trusting others.
He also had an issue with men in hats. We believe he was hurt by a male figure in his previous home.
He is a GREAT DOG over all we love him and want him to be a therpy dog one day. He is great once he trusts someone. I know alot of this comes with socialization.
Any additional tips would be great.
