Rescuing a Fearful Submissive Adult Dog

 

So today I explained to my uncle how to best help his new dog, that he rescued recently. Seems the dog is fearful and submissive. I explained to him that dogs need a clear hierarchy in place in the house, otherwise they'll feel the need to constantly show submission - which is neither enjoyable for the dog nor for the owner.


True to my approach that is based on the dogs' deepest instincts, I explained to him how to use space and food to communicate to his dog that yes, he is clearly the one who makes the decision but also the one who will take care of her - so she can relax.
