It talks about why the handler should be the one feeding treats to a shy/nervous dog, not the stranger. Help a girl out and link it! :) (Please)

No. :( But that's a good one! Similar content. The one I'm thinking either was also bite prevention or counter conditioning focused with a bit on what the article you linked talked about. I swear we have posted it here before, I just don't know how to do a search that advanced....

... Crap. I think I've read it too. And it talks about how the dog can temporarily overcome their anxiety to get to the treat lure, but once they're by the stranger and eat the treat, they're suddenly waaaay past their threshold and there's a scary hand right in front of their face and they're prone to panicking? That one?

Mine too! I volunteered to help a dog with significant separation anxiety and I'm writing up this massive treatment plan for him and I was supposed to send it to them like three days ago and it's STILL NOT DONE because I am trying to be ridiculously thorough... without knowing anything whatsoever about their living circumstances. So I am basically writing them a book and my brain is exploding.

Do we know this is an article? Could it be a section of a book we've both read? Maybe The Culture Clash or The Cautious Canine?

No, that's not it either, but it's another good one! We're gonna find all sorts of neat stuff. Sadly, my Google searches have proved futile.

Hmmmmmmmmm.... you all are going to hate me if I say no again, so ... maybe? lol

I did review that one in my search (it's one of my faves), but I didn't think it was it. Rereading it again, it could be. I'm not sure. :eek:

ZoesMom--does that seem like the one you were thinking of? Cuz we're telepathic--I'll trust that what you were thinking of is what I was.

I really thought it was something with the subject in the title, ie "should he feed your dog treats?" but not that exactly.

Sigh. I should give up. Y'all have provided three great articles that cover it and should suffice.

(It's just... ya know... when you can remember X and Z, and you know "Y" is in somewhere in there, but don't remember it is "Y?" I hate that feeling!)

Yeah, I don't know! Lol! The one Kmes posted is the closest one. I'm not sure if it's "the one" though... I know what you're talking about for shiz, though, because I'm sure I reposted it on fb but I have too much crap on my wall to find it. Go figure.

Haha, this is why I should use my Pinterest more.... My memory is bound to fail on occasion.

This doesn't help at all, but I think I read the same article. Of course, I don't remember where and can't find it. So, yeah, no help at all.

Hmm, could this have been it? How to help a shy dog gain confidence – and reduce his risk of biting!

relevant quote:
• Caution! A fearful dog may temporarily overcome his fears in the tempting presence of a high value treat, then bite the scary person when the treat is no longer there. Don’t have strangers/helpers feed treats until you are sure your dog has been desensitized adequately – that he no longer appears fearful when approaching or being approached by strangers.
