Hi everyone. I rescued a Shepherd 8 months ago. Ranger is an amazing dog, but he was so abused that he would pee with just simple eye contact when he arrived. I have spent a lot of time trying to help him. I meditate over him and that is the only thing that regulates his breathing. He is very willing and wants to please. It just breaks my heart when he lays down with his tail between his legs at the slightest correction or even when asked to sit. I want to punch the people who had him before, but I digress... He has made a lot of progress but it seems short lived and I have to start all over again almost every 5 days. I work him off leash with my pack and he does very well but as soon as he can he will break free from them. I just fear that his life will be cut short with all of this stress...Does anyone have any suggestions (other than medication, I won't do that to him..)?
