Severe Anxiety in my 6yr old JRT
(St. Croix Falls, WI)
I have a 6 year old Purebred JRT Bitch. I have another dog (Beagle) and they have been together her whole life. Recently she has gotten even more skittish and anxious than usual. She shakes non stop, hides in her kennel all the time and doesn't play anymore. We started training my Beagle with a tone/shock collar due to his naughty Beagle ways. My JRT runs for her kennel when she hears the tone from his collar. She has behavior issues too but I won't put the same collar on her because of her reaction when he's wearing it. The only other change in the house was we put the cat outside that used to be in the house. I feel terrible for her and don't know what to do!
