Hi guys. I'm sorry if this topic has already been discussed. If it has, please so not hestitate to direct me to the thread. THanks. Anyway, like the topic says, how do I regain the trust of my puppy? My puppy is a 2.5 months old Welsh Corgi, named Cookie. Yea...I know. That's now the most creative names to give to a Corgi. Anyway, that's not the point. Here's the situation: My family just got our first dog on Sunday. On the first day home, after much playing around, she began to respond to to "Cookie come," together with some clapping of hands. However, during hosuebreaking, I guess I was too, erm, nervous, and I think I've scared her a little. One the 2nd day's morning, after breakfast, we made the mistake of letting her out before she emptied her bowels. Then, as I was on the sofa reading my morning papers, she spreaded her legs open to prepare for a pee. She was facing away from me. I panicked and immediately stood up and sort of ran towards her. She turned around and looked a me, and I think she was frightened. It wasn't intentional (if only she could read this..)! That night, when I came back, she no longer comes when I call out "Cookie come,". She reponds to my brother and his girlfriend. All 3 of us spend almost the same amoutn of time together. She even used to respond to "sit" every now and then. Today (3rd day), I stayed home the whole day to bond with her. I played with her, stroked her, fed her, carried her. Cookie doesn't hestitate to give me a face-wash (or is it wash-face?) whenever she gets the chance. Also, she does not run away from me when I try to pet her. While she's fine with me carrying her and walking around, she's quite eager to get off my lap/hands whenever I sit down - she's fine with my brother and his girlfriend doing it. How do I regain his trust, or rather, let him "come" to me, again? We do praise her whenever she does something favourable. However, when she does not come to me, how do I praise her for that? Thanks in advance.
