Dog yelping for no reason
So I just found out that there is a "dog yelping for no reason" on this site. My family has had two dogs. One was a pittie/terrier mix. They did not want her around kids because she yelps every time a kid is close by. My mother would even tell her not to bark and she would bark at other animals around. She was so traumatized by the fact that she was being told not to yelp, she had a nervous breakdown and became extremely depressed. So we had her put down and my family has been really struggling with this. So we just had a second dog that is a terrier and we took in a rescue dog. It is a golden retriever and I want to say that when we got her she was really scared of everyone. We got a little kid and we were going to take her to a class so that she would learn to socialize her. She started barking and barking and she is afrd of the kid. And that is the most frustrating thing because when I ask her not to she just keeps barking. It is really annoying. And when she is around the kids and all they do is play with her and pet her and she gets all excited and then she barks when she is around the kids. She was just so excited when she met us and she was scared of all the adults but she is getting better. When we first got her, she was not even getting along with the kids. And she was really scared of us. She would bark at me and I would try to get her to calm down and she would run into her cage and hide. But now she is better. She is still scared of some adults and she barks at people when they come into her house but she seems to be getting better. And she doesn't yelp all the time but she does yelp. She always yelps when there are children and if there are adults in the house and the kids are around. But when we are at the park she only barks at people when they are close and she yelps at children. But she only does it when she is playing with them and petting them. And that is my problem. It is like she is yelping for no reason. But I am still trying to teach her that she needs to yelp when people come in.
So my question is...
Is this normal or just my dog?
My mom is going to take her to a trner but I don't know if that is going to help. And I don't know what to do because I don't want to yell at the kids or give them a hard time for scaring her. It is just so sad.
Sorry for the long explanation but I just wanted to make sure that I am not over thinking this and that I am not the only one with this problem.
Thank you so much
I just want a happy dog with no problems. My mom just wants a dog with no problems.
My dog has been diagnosed with a bad heart and we have had to do two cardiovergic procedures. And now she yelps when I hold her or when I pet her or when I pick her up. And she is afrd of people when they are getting close to her. But she doesn't seem to do this when she is playing with kids and petting them. And it doesn't seem to be when she is around adults. I just don't know what to do. I don't want to yell at the kids for scaring her. And I don't want to yell at them because they aren't doing anything wrong. It is just that she is so excited and she does not understand that these people are getting close to her and that this is very scary. And I am not getting any answers to the yelping.
I don't know. My mom was telling me that this yelping is because when she was a pup she used to yelp for no reason and she wasn't afrd of people then. And now she is afrd of people and she yelps and hides. I don't know what to tell my mom.
I was trying to get her to learn that she needs to yelp at people to let them know she is scared. And she is scared of some people but she is fine with others. I just don't know what to do. I don't want to yell at the kids because I don't want to make things worse. And I don't want to make them mad at me for scaring her when there is nothing that they are doing wrong.
I don't know.
My mom has been telling me that dogs yelp for no reason because when they were puppies they used to yelp when they didn't have to and they weren't scared of people. And now they are scared of people and they have been telling me that this yelping is because they were told that they shouldn't yelp so now they are yelping to let people know they are scared. And I am not sure if that is right.
So that is my question. Should I leave her alone if she is yelping for no reason?
I just want her to have a happy life with no problems. And I just want to know if she is going to yelp for no reason when she is a puppy.
Sorry if this is a repeat question.
I just don't want her to have problems because she is just a baby and she needs to learn to socialize.
Yes you should leave her alone. She is scared of you and she is also scared of the kids. The reason she is yelping is because of what was sd to her in her first years. If there are no adults and the kids don't do anything scary she should be fine. But if someone comes into her room she has to yelp to let the other people know she is scared.
You are telling her that she needs to yelp, so why shouldn't she yelp? That's what she is doing. She is doing it because you
