For as long as I can remember, my dog Lucky has hated men. Unlike Oscar who is mine & my boyfriends, Lucky is the "family dog" and lives at my parents house. I've been with my boyfriend for over 4 years now and Lucky has hated him since day 1. She barks continuously when he is at the house and won't go near him unless I'm there sort of acting as a barrier between them, or if he has food.. haha. She's like this with all males. She hates my sister's boyfriend as well; but not as much as she dislikes mine. She totally despises my uncle. However she loves my stepfather and follows him around like a shadow. To me it seems like she has anxiety around males? Could this be the reason she barks so much? She doesn't bite or be saucy.. Just seems like shes literally terrified & very uneasy. Obviously she hasn't been beaten by any males.. Unless it was before we got her as a puppy? Does anyone have any similar experiences or advice?
