Fear period

Post by Oscar 12345 » 14 May 2018, 20:16

For anyone going through or about to go through the adolescent fear period I can advise that Otto's started at 9.5 months of age and has lasted between 3-4 weeks. All well now and noises aren't worrying him so we appear to be back to normal. 2 joggers ran by right next to him yesterday and a cyclist this morning. Wasn't bothered at all whereas last week he would have cowered in a hedge. I didn't change any of our routines but I never forced him to get close to something that was bothering him either.
Otto's motto - Everything's a toy unless it's edible...

Gino was a 12 months last week & I noticed a couple of weeks ago that when there was any noise around eg a bus or a noisy lorry he stopped in his tracks he seems to be getting over it think he is starting to get over it.
