Hi all, I have a 9 month old miniature dachshund that has a real problem with strangers and especially visitors to the house. We have had him since he was a puppy and thought that we did everything you were 'supposed' to do to socialise him e.g take him out in our arms before he had his jabs/take him on car rides/to other peoples houses etc. His problem is barking and growling at strangers, to the point where he will not stop until they are out of sight. This has gradually got worse over the months and now when we have visitors he is almost at the point of lunging and looks like he might bite if they come too close. It is horrible to see and really stresses him out. Obviously we are not having visitors round at the moment as we don't want to put him in that situation, but we are at a loss of how to tackle the issue. Does anyone have any tips of how to create a positive association with strangers and visitors? We have been told so many conflicting things from taking him to the busiest place we can do 'desensitise' him - to only taking him on walks where we know we won't meet any people or dogs! Any advise is much appreciated.
