Default Does you dog not like anyone?

Teagan does not like my brothers bestfriend Brandon. Brandon has known Teagan ever since she was a little pup. He would play with her we would go to the DP together. He would bring his GSD Mindy. And when he would come over she would be excited to see him

But ever since Mindy attacked Teagan last May she hates him. Ignores him, won't go up to him. Won't even take cheese from him. if he tosses food to her she will ignore it until he is not looking then she gobbles it up. If I am around she follows me around the house like a clingy baby. When he comes near me she hides behind me.

The weird thing is that she is fine with Mindy who was the one who did attack her. I wonder what goes on in her little terrier mind.

We are working at it and it has got better.

So does anyone else have a dog that loaths a certain person/people?

Summer loves everyone and with Mia its more of a 'wow she actually likes you!" versus a "wow she doesn't like you!"

Umm . . . yes! But in Kharma's case, she might ACT like she likes you for her own nefarious purposes Or she might just let you know immediately. The Fila Glare can get pretty obvious.

Bimmer dislikes certain people -- usually on sight. Tallulah has learned the hard way to not trust anyone to be friends right away; she makes you PROVE you aren't going to reject her before she unthaws.

Yep, but I'm used to my dogs not liking everyone. They tolerate most people, but there are only a few that they adore.

A random guy called to Mia today at the park and she ran up and let him pet her, I was SHOCKED to say the least. That just doesn't happen often.

Maggie is afraid of most people. I'm always proud of her when she makes a friend. She has about 5-6 human friends, including me and Justin, and everyone else she is afraid of.

Mine are both too friendly for their own good! Although I expect that could change for Quinn when she gets over her puppy sillies - when we met her sire's littermate she was a sweet dog and would come for pats when you called her over, but other than that she wanted nothing to do with anyone who was not her family!

Sierra loves everyone.

She growled at a guy once, who was stumbling along the sidewalk who was obviously under the influence of some pretty hefty drugs. I think she knew he was sketchy. Otherwise, she's been exuberantly friendly to every human she's met.

... only one person immediately popped into my mind. My x.

Basically I let myself be talked into going out with him several times. After a couple of dates, he wanted to hang out, so I suggested walking with me and Missy. We met at the park... and she wanted to EAT him. I've never seen her react so strongly to someone before. It was all of the training & handling that I could do to keep her under control. We did walk, but only briefly, and I just ended up going home after a bit. Maddie wasn't very crazy about him either, but she just pretty much ignored him.

That should've been my first, last, and only needed warning. Lesson learned..... He was NOT a nice guy. He became very controlling very quickly after that .... anyway....

Other than the guy who flashed me at the park and the guy who was hiding in the bushes by my house my dogs have NEVER reacted to ANYONE like that but that was the only time that was unprovoked, so to say.

the bulldogs pretty much love everybody.

steve... not so much. when he likes you, he really realllllly likes you, but there are some people he just really really really *doesn't* like. and he will *not* be swayed. i think it's got to do with tendencies to loom over and/or stare at him.
