New member but long-time dog lover from NZ.
I currently have two rescue dogs of indeterminate breed - one,called Pip, is a possible whippet, foxy mix and the other, named RJ, was rescued from a farm and think he's a farm dog/pig dog mix. Both were adopted at the same time from SPCA Taupo.
Pip is about 7-8 years old and loves people but, unfortunately is fear reactive to other dogs.
RJ is about 5 and loves other dogs but due to his sheltered life up until he was about 3 years old can be quite nervous around new things.
Both have relaxed and improved hugely in the couple of years that they've lived with us. I use Dog Zen approach for training and have also used a a local dog trainer to help with Pip's reactive issues.
They are super sweet and much loved.
