Adopted a 10 month old female Pom/mix. We have two large pit bulls and a 13 year old daughter. The new dog loves everyone and we love her. She is terrified of my husband to the point of barking any time he moves or enters the room. I can walk the dog just fine but if my husband has the leash she lays down or pulls to be away from him.

She will sleep next to him in the bed. He bathes her, brushes her and she acts fine, then 3 minutes later she acts like she doesn't know who he is and barks like crazy.

What can we do to help her love us all the same?
Thanks for any advice!

Try making him the sole caregiver, feeding, potty walks, playing and giver of treats. She needs to see he won't hurt her. If he's the only one who cares for her, then that would build trust. Good Luck!
