Hi all! My second time posting here. I have a Border Collie which is about 15 weeks old. She loves my wife and this kids very much and it’s clear they have the dog’s trust. Myself though, the male, is another story altogether... The dog won’t come near me unless my wife is in the room. If everyone goes too bed and I’m downstairs watching TV, she will hide behind the sofa and won’t come out until I got too bed. She won’t even go and use her toilet mat. I can’t let her because she runs away. My wife has tried to bring her to me while in her arms. The dog will allow me to touch her but only from the neck down. We don’t even attempt to do this anymore because it’s clear she looks very unsure and afraid under those circumstances and I don’t want to force the dog by any means. On a more positive note, she has warmed up too me a little. She will accept treats from me and will even play fetch or tug-o-war with me but that’s it! I’m not sure what other trust building exercises I can try but I am concerned that this will lead and stay into adulthood of the dog’s life.
