Hi Barbara
Thanks for your comment on my photo . Yes, boys are all well thanks. They certainly keep me very busy . They have such high spirits I guess thats why we love them. I hope that you and Finn are well .

Well bad news from the vet .Alfie does need surgery. Scheduled for 3 weeks time roughly . Luxating patellas quite bad and vet said he would be crippled with arthritis by age 4 or 5 ! To remain on lead and medication until surgery. He's already fed up so I'm dreading it.
Feel a bit devastated but helpless .
Hope you get better news.
I'm off to Cyprus for a weeks holiday tomorrow !
Good luck
Audrey

Hi Barbara
Yes Ianto is wearing a DAP not because he is nervous just suggested when I first got him as tiny pup to help with the transition & I have continued but only because another of my dogs has severe fear aggression & he wears the cut off bit !
re their use well I didn't think it helped until it ran out (they only last 4wks) & she is more grumpy than usual. It may well help Finn what I would suggest is you find a relaxed friend with a calm dog to walk with so Finn can pick up on the other dogs confidence, also look into dog communication classes there may be some near you which help dogs that have had traumamatic incidents by using teaching dogs. My fear aggressive dog will never improve as I just kept hoping things would get better instead of getting help sooner so we cope as best we can, Finn will also pick up on your anxiety big time so you need to be confident as well -maybe worth hubby taking him out if he is relaxed, remember barking is only symptom of his behaviour / anxiety not the cause. DAP collars are cheaper online than the vets but they give constant reassurance as against the DAP plug in or DAP spray you could also try Zylkene capsules also available online as non presciption which help with anxiety please feel free to email/pm me am always happy to chat !
