You may have seen him in my old post when I first got him, I still have not named him either! (I'm horrible, I know)
Well he is not fond of human touch. He gets that crazy look in his little face when a person walks towards him. I have been working with him since I was given him and I believe he's progressed a bit but not really that much. He used to run away as soon as someone came into the pen, or came within a certain radius of him and strike at you if you tried touching him. However he never pins his ears so I know its strictly out of fear.
Fast forward to today, I can enter the pen and he doesn't run for his life. He sometimes backs away but that's still better than taking off. When I put out my hand he will come to me and sniff it, however I still can't touch him. I am sometimes able to barely graze my fingertips on his whiskers/muzzle after doing the approach/retreat method with him. He fusterates the living poo out of me because he will let me stand like a foot away from him as he basically dozes off, but the minute my hand gets within an inch from him he will move.
To answer a few statements I'm prepared to hear a lot of, YES I do have a trainer if I need one and they provide lots of tips and advice as I am doing this on my own. I would just like to hear you guys advice as far as what I should try next? Sorry if none of this makes sense, I m typing out all my thoughts as they come. Lol
