Question Anxiety Problems??

I fear that my two year old Jack Russell may have an anxiety problem. Whenever she hears the word "no" or is told not to do something or hears a high pitched sound, or feels somewhat threatened in ANY shape of form... she shakes uncontrollably and pees. She used to only pee when I would get home from work and she would be so excited but now she pees whenever there is so much as a slight breeze in the right direction. Ive never "corrected" her for this action as I dont feel it is something she can control.. is there a solution or does she really even have a medical problem? For instance, we just let her inside from pottying outside and she ran into the house and into her carrier like she was in trouble for something... she is shaking... and when I went to call her out, she peed in the crate....I'm confused... suggestions??

This sounds like one for Emma, our Creature Teacher! It's not often you run into a fearful Jack or one with so little self-confidence.

i called the vet today and he said it sounded more like a "mental" problem and referred me to a trainer in our area. Unfortunetly we only have 2 in our area, only one around us and another one about an hour away. We've already signed her up for obedience classes starting tomorrow, but we would really like to get the issue solved ASAP. We don't like seeing her sad, and we don't know what to do!

I think my dog has seperation anxiety (or he doesn't like his crate). I got back from taking my daughter to the hospital this evening and it sounded like there was a petshop in our house he was barking uncontrollably. He shut up the minute I turned on the lights, and to my surprise he didn't pee in his crate (which he had been in for over 2 hours). He's been doing the barking thing ever since we got him but today was the first day that he has been in his crate while everybody was gone for over an hour without peeing (or leaving us another surprise). I'm so proud of him. He's going to puppy training classes too, and I have tried numerous different toys to keep him entertained but the toys don't seem to work for him.

We started obedience classes last night... and guess what. We are already seeing signgs of improvement. She hasn't had ANY episodes today whatsoever. We basically worked on a "dominance down." Crazy what a little training can do!!!
