Described below are some of my own dogs and the problems that they have had, take a look and see if you recognise any similar behaviours in your own dogs.
Keto the Bullmastiff
I got Keto at 5 months old, she wasn’t a rescue, she had just been returned to the breeder because she kept chasing the cat! Unfortunately, though we were on the back foot from the beginning because she hadn’t had any socialisation and had never worn a collar or lead. Luckily, I already had Jinx, my first Bullmastiff and so the pair bonded incredibly well.
The first four years of Keto’s life were fine, no real issues but what I later realised was that if she did feel uneasy about something, she would look to Jinx for reassurance. So when Jinx was diagnosed with Cancer, Keto started to change, her best mate could no longer reassure her. It probably didn’t help because I was a bit of an emotional wreck, worried about Jinx.
