    I was very easy to train Zoey to sit, beg, shake, etc. Housebroke super easy. She loves everybody and loves chasing the ball for exercise. Zoey always loved riding in the car and I even had her own seat for her to keep her safe. My niece came to live with me for a few months and Zoey would go on car rides with her. Sometimes Jodi would not strap her in to her seat and just leave her loose in the car. One day I was riding in the passenger seat of the car while Jodi was driving. Zoey was in the back seat. When I looked in the back seat to check on Zoey she was hunched down and latterly shaking so bad I thought maybe she was going to have a seizure. Well, no seizure…this is the new Zoey riding in the car. It has been this way for a couple months. I have tried everything to get her to calm down and enjoy the ride like she use too. I asked my niece if she knew what happened to Zoey and she says she has no idea. Not sure what happened to her but I have noticed that bumps in the road or loud noises make it worse. Another thing that happened, about the same time, is her protection over her dog dish whenever anyone come to my house. She runs to her dish and starts banging it around like she is trying to hide it from them. They don’t even have to have a dog with them, but it’s even worse if they do. I hope you can help me with some suggestions on how to fix these problems. Does your video’s show solutions I can use. I am 61 and have had many of miniature schnauzers as pets and never have had to deal with anything like this before. Not sure what to do.

    I have worked with dogs my whole life and consider my self a prety good dog trainer I have never had a problem like this beffore

    We have had him for about 3 years we ussed to live in a smaler apartment

    My wife crys everytime she hugs hercules saying what will we do with you your ruining our lives

    He broke his leg when he was 6 months old ot cost us 3000$ to have it fixed now he has a metal plate in the leg we didint give up on him thene we are still paying that off we have about 2500$ left in creditcards dept and that sofa is allso beeing payd off still have 550$left to payand its half destroyed

    We went to so much i cant imagin coming home and hes not here

    But my wife is right if he dosent calm down we cant keep him we both have iriplasible items from our passed loved ones if he got to theme i cant even begin to think how bad that would be

    Some things about hercules

    He is scared of everything biger than him the first year and a half of his life was inside only cuss of his broken leg
    He is tall and skiny for a boxer favorit toys are plushes but he destroys theme even the ones made of fire hose that cost 30$ he has allways been tough on his toys ironicaly the pixar monster movie plush and the claw machine plushes last way longer.
    The only toys he dosent break are bones and big solide toy balls anything nurf or kong gets destroyed do not recomend
    He has been acting up for about 2 months we been living here for 6 months

    My wife and i both work retail we dont make a lot of money

    we got herculles around the time we had a pet care and a house took in hundreads of animals im talking cats dogs rodents reptiles birds customers would leav theme with us and go on vacation come back to find there loved pet waithing for theme

    If it wasent for that anoying destructive things he does he would be the perfecg dog

    Pleas give us a solution i have not yet tryed that will save me from saying good bye to my best buddy

    Ps sorry for the misspelling and i probably repeted the same things over and over again in my post right now i have hercules in the corner laying there watching me with eyes saying i dont know why your mad at me and im desperate for a solution.
