    If the dog is walked lots everyday she'll become normal.

    How is walking going to make her brain cells any better?

    Um, I think Pugger may be trying to say that if she was walked regularly (exercise and fresh air etc) her behaviour might change. Sorry Pugger if I'm wrong.

    If that's what you meant, you could have a point...

    I know in another thread I said I don't get to walk my dogs as often as I'd like as I am a full time carer for my mum, but I did also write that my dogs get exercised. they go to my grandparents 2-3 times a week to play with their dog and I walk my dogs on a treadmill everyday, they get plenty of fresh air in our huge backyard. Hollie's problems are not caused by boredom. I have been through that with our vet as that is what I first thought it was as well. Our vet believes Hollie is being exercised enough. My other dogs are exercised just like she is and none of them have any issues. Hollie already had these issues at her former home and so did the cat.

    It may or may not have anything to do with blowing smoke in the faces, it may or may not be due to neurotic behaviour of the previous owner, it ma or may not be due to no socialisation to different enironments, anything.

    The best thing you can do is get the dog out and about learning new things experiencing the world imo. As well as teaching it.
    If you find yourself going through hell; Don't stay. Just keep on going.

    You're right she was never socialised except with our dogs by the previous owner. We are still working on getting her socialised, Hollie and 1 of our other dogs go to trainer once a week and they have been with this trainer for the last 3 months. Thats why I posted this thread because while our other dog is coming along in leaps and bounds Hollie hasn't learnt a thing, and this is her 4th trainer in 8 months. They have informed me that it may just be a lost cause with her because she should be picking things up by now. I was just wondering if anyone else had experience with drug damaged dogs. As that is what the vet, trainers and behaviourist have told us it is.

    I'm sorry, have no knowledge of or experience with this whatsoever. Well, not with dogs anyway. Sigh.

    I hope someone on here can help you. Then again if they can, that's probably sad IYKWIM?

    We had a dog walker that took our dogs 3 days a week but the cost adds up quickly where as our obedience training only costs us $50 for the year. Alot cheaper. I will be getting a walker back in to take the dogs out a couple of days a week, but our vet thinks it's fine that they are each walked for 30 minutes on the treadmill everyday.

    Hyacinth showed an article recently that said in humans, walking can regenerate brain cells which have been damaged. I don't know if it would be the same for a dog, but I do know that a lot of behaviours that dogs display that are like OCD or just odd are because of boredom and lack of exercise.
    You need a dog walker more than a trainer. The dog walker would actually be training the dog while walking her.
