Hello everyone! So, I am having an issue with my Jack Russell. A bit of backstory, a few months ago I took our dog Kevin out for a walk around the film which we have walked hundreds of times before. That day was different because, unaware to us, a new farmer had replaced the normal fencing with an electric one. To my shame I did not notice, and when he was loose on the lead Kevin touched it and had a right fright. He did not get injured or anything, we had him checked, but ever since then he had been nervous about me putting him on a lead. Thing is, his absolutely fine with me outside this. He is always edger to play, use me as a pillow etc. Nothing has changed there. The moment I pick up his lead however, he runs and hides in whatever spot he can. He I try and put it on he gets very defence, with small nips to try and keep the lead away. My parents have had to be the ones who put the lead on him or take him for a walk in my stead. When I get him out into the wild he is usually OK, however now Kevin is starting to get smart about my parents putting him on the lead and has started hiding from them too if he sees I am around! So, does anyone have any tips onto how I can get Kevin's trust back? Its starting to become a right pain... plus I feel really guilty.
