A Barking Chow/Golden Retriever Mix and a Bad Mannered Beagle Mix
Season 1 | Episode 23 | Buddy and Stewart
Stewart, a Chow/Golden Retriever mix, was rescued from the pound by Damon and Deborah Carr who chose her because she was the only dog in the shelter that wasn’t barking. As soon as Stewart became familiar with her new home, the barking began. Any time Stewart is in an uncomfortable or new situation she starts to bark and growl. The Carrs’ greatest fear is that Stewart is becoming increasingly fearful-aggressive toward children. They wish Stewart would be calm and relaxed and not feel the need to bark all the time.
Johnny Johnson got Buddy, a Beagle mix, as a surprise for his 9-year old daughter, Alexandra. Buddy has a plethora of odd behaviors, but his strangest fear showed up a month after coming to live with his new family. Every time Johnny turns on the hose, Buddy runs for the house. If Buddy even hears the nozzle being turned on, he’ll run for his life. Buddy is also terrified of the pool. When the family goes swimming, Buddy will cower in the corner. Buddy also bites people’s shoes as they walk or run by him. One of Buddy’s most annoying problem is that he sniffs people all over. He mostly goes for the crotch area and gooses people from behind, especially visiting women. Can Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan teach Buddy better manners?
