I have 5 dogs, but only 2 of them, Jade my boxer and Rosie my pug are afraid of them. Jade just goes nuts trying to hide and Rosie hides in a corner and shakes. I have to be there to pet them and talk to them to calm them down. They act like they are being abused and having firecrackers thrown at them, but they've never been through either. I do my best to help through it.
