I got this idea from another forum, but thought it would be fun to see what kind of wierd things spook your dogs and what breeds they are that get spooked! (causes them to turn tail and run, or jump back quickly in fear)
Kali is an American Pitbull Terrier...she's not spooked by anything really...Orion on the other hand....
Orion is a 75 lbs American Pitbull Terrier and the biggest CHICKEN! These are some of the wierd things that spook him!
1)Garbage Bags...when you shake them out to put them in the can.
2)Remote Control...pick one up and he jumps back startled
3)Things that don't belong...walking him the other day and somone had put an old recliner out on the curb for trash, Orion made me cross the street to get past it! He wouldn't go within 20 feet of it! Really freaked him out!
4)2 Liter Bottles...same reaction as the remote
5)Rabbit cage...won't get within 3 feet of it
6)Chinchillas...refuses to cross the doorway into the chin room...my first ever chin got out of her cage while I was refreshing her food one day and she chased Orion out of the living room! (this was back when she was my only chin and we didn't have a chin room)
7)Coats/Jackets...put one on and he freaks out running away barking...once it is on, he's fine. Just the process of putting it on!
8)Making your eyes really big and looking a him...he jumps back.
9)The bathtub...once he's in, he's usually fine, but getting him in freaks him out.
10)Being picked up...worried look on his face!
11)The hose...I guess we sprayed him one too many times
12)Pools...Shane tossed him into our friend's pool to see if he was a swimmer...nope, sunk clear to the bottom! We had to jump in and save him (just like his father, Merc)
13)Coughs...got a cold, cough and he freaks out jumping back.
15)Dremmel Tool...Shane files his nails with it as opposed to cutting them...no sharp edges. Even when he's done with Orion's nails and he picks it up to put it away, Orion runs!
I'm sure there are more...he's such a chicken, but I can't think of them at the moment.
What are some things that freak out your dogs?
