    DefaultMy Labrador seems to be suffering from agraphobia

    Hi all

    I have a 2 year old male black labrador, Alfie, who is a lovely gentle soul but who seems to be afraid of everything. He hasn't always been this way, it started last Summer when we were on the beach and a jet ski made a loud noise and he ran back to the car across a busy road! Since then he seems to be afraid of noices in the outdoors. He used to love the beach and swimming in the sea and walking in the woods, but now he gets out of the car, does his business and then runs back to the car and will not move until we let him get back in. This is so frustrating because we are finding it hard to exercise him. He suffers from food allergies and is constantly at the vets and we just don't know what to do with him. Has anyone else had a dog like this? Is there any hope? I look forward to hearing from you all.

    Can your vet suggest a good dog behaviorist? He is far too young to have his life restricted this way.

    I have mentioned this to the vet but they were a bit vague, I will ask them for a recommendation. Thanks for your suggestion.
