My little Sprocker rocker
My JRT Sprocket has always been my favorite dog. We wanted a dog that was strong, durable (for Montana weather), and easy to care for in one little package. Right now, he is seven years old (he only seems about three or four!)
One day, everyone was at work and school, Sprocket was in his dog run in the yard. A common black bear or a cougar must have came along and pulled down the chain-link fence down from the metal bar. Sprocket must have been very traumatized...when we returned home, we noticed the pulled-down part of the fence followed by black hairs.
From that day, Sprocket has never ever EVER liked an animal that was larger than him. He barks, barks, and barks we are guessing because he is threatened. He is a good guard dog, however, we want him to like other dogs that are larger than him. He only likes dogs that are the same size as him.
How can we solve this?
