Hey, we've lost so many of our old members, it's really nice to see an old name. I hope you're doing well with school
I am not a good resource for this problem, (unfortunately, we have lost a lot of the people you would look to for help here) but I was wondering if you've thought about having any blood work done to check for anything that could be showing up there.
Here is a link to something I just saw today, it's a new study and it is very small but was talking about improvements in dog reactivity. I am wondering if the ideas about cortisol and stress and helping the dog relax could helpful to you with managing Fenway. And it does sound like management is key till you figure things out. (I'm glad you've figured out that all good stuff needs to be picked up and eliminated before there was a serious injury) I would imagine trying to keep things less chaotic and trying to keep him in a routine could be helpful. http://theiscp.com/wp-content/upload...-Thesis-2a.pdf
included instruction in canine body language; identifying calming signals and early
warning signs that meant intervention was needed to prevent a full blown reactive
outburst, everyday management skills, including Tellington TTouch techniques to help
relaxation and restore balance within the dog, and suggested activities to provide
mental stimulation and enrichment (Appendix iii)"
Are you familiar with the books by Turid Rugaas on behavior? And also the TTouch massage? Could be useful.
I'm sorry you're having such a difficult issue, I'm sure it's pretty stressful.
