Im new and after reading a bit here I thought id ask for some advice. I have a nearly 2yr old neo mastiff cross from the pound. She was not socialised and both the pound and myself believe she was used for just breeding. She was underfed weighed in at about 30kg and was so scared of people she wouldn't even approach you for food. Now however she is a lovely well adjusted social dog , who weighs in at a healthy 48kg.
My problem is that when we go for a walk (she walks with her "Sister" a staffy cross something) she freaks out when ever we walk past a house that has dogs barking and being aggressive behind a fence. Dogs that are being walk or roaming round she has no issues with. I'm walking her on a halti ATM and at any other times have no issues with her. I've tried getting her to sit with her back to the fence until she's calm again, but as soon as we start walking she freaks out again. i can take 4 rounds of sitting to get past a normal size yard.
Any help/tips would be great.
