Out of all the problems that a dog trainer or forum member can encounter...which do you think is probably the hardest to solve and why?

About two years ago I would have said "Pulling on the leash" because I just could not get Neka to stop pulling.

Now I would have to say: trying to remove "fear or aggression" from a dog after it has been abused by a previous owner. These kinds of dogs often shut down and will not allow anyone near them to help. I worked with one dog a year or so ago that was SO affraid of strangers that it would not even come to its owner if a stranger was standing there.

It took a long time to get him to trust strangers. But today, she is much better and when i stop to see her, she cant wait for me to come over and pet her!

I think it would be barking at strangers. It's nearly impossible to make your dog stop doing this!

Well this has a little to do with fearful aggression so I guess you would be agreeing with BetterDog4U.lol. Actually I was going to say the same thing.

Dogs that are abused are really hard to work with and many of them don't always become 100% normal dogs, I know because my dachshund was previously abused and has fear aggression too. So thats point #3 for fearful aggression. Anyone else?
