    My dog is very sensitive.
    bpcookie posted:
    Hello everyone, I have had my dog for a year now and she has always been a bit sensitive, but not too bad. But every now and then, not often, just recently, when she sees my husband, she will tuck her tail and go under the bed. We have no idea why she does this. She adores my husband and he spoils her rotten. She has also done this with me as well. She even started shaking. We dont know what to do to help her understand that we arent going to hurt her or yell at her, which we have never done. We have tried picking her up, telling her she is a good girl, kissing her, giving her attention, but it doesnt work when she is scared. Does anyone have any idea as to what we can do? Also has anyone ever had their pets behave in such a way?

    Thank you ahead of time.
