How to Deal with Your Shadow Dog

There is no one right way to deal with the fear of dogs, but there are some helpful tips that can help. One of the most important things to do is to understand why the fear exists in the first place. Once you know the root of the fear, you can start to work on addressing it.

One of the most common reasons people fear dogs is because they have experienced a traumatic event with a dog. This could be anything from being bitten as a child to witnessing a dog attack someone else. If you can't remember the event, it's not the dog's fault. It's important to remember that dogs are not the cause of the fear, and they cannot hurt you.

If you are able to identify the root of the fear, you can start to work on addressing it. One of the most common ways to do this is to practice exposure therapy. This means gradually exposing yourself to the dog until the fear subsides. You can also try cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which is a type of therapy that helps you change the way you think about the fear.

If you are unable to address the fear on your own, it may be helpful to seek out help from a professional. A therapist can help you understand the root of the fear and teach you how to address it.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breederYet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.

Posted June 15, 2017 Shadow (formerly known as Dixie) has made herself right at home as part of our family, adjusting extremely well after just a few days. She is a smart, energetic, sweet puppy and we are so glad we took her home.

She is our fourth dog rescued from Northeast Animal Shelter over several years and each has imprinted their own unique personality, love and loyalty on our hearts forever. Shadow is doing great with her housebreaking…accident free on her third day home…and has already accomplished a feat some dogs never do: she has made friends with the mailman, greeting him with kisses and a wiggly butt!

One funny quirk is that she is very attentive to the TV and growls when other dogs appear on the screen in her parlor, as if to say…”this is my home”
Thank you to Northeast Animal Shelter for all you do so these animals get the love they are meant to have and bring so much joy to those who adopt.
