I'm having an issue with my dog not liking my boyfriend when

Customer Question

Hi, I'm having an issue with my dog not liking my boyfriend when he comes over. Every time he comes in the door, she immediately starts barking and running away from him. My boyfriend is the sweetest guy and he loves dogs and would never even think of hurting my dog. But, my dog keeps thinking that he is going to hurt her.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: She is named Sassy. We rescued her when she was a puppy and she is about a year and a half now.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about named?
Customer: Not that I can think of. She doesn't like strangers but eventually warms up to them. But, with my boyfriend, she doesn't want to like him at all.

In order to supply you with an informed answer, it is necessary for me to collect some additional information from you. When I receive your response or reply, it will likely take me between 30-45 minutes to type up my reply if I am still online when I receive notice that you replied. I hope you can be patient.

What breed is Sassy?

Does your boyfriend crouch down to greet her or bend over?

How long have you been seeing this boyfriend?

What do you do when she barks at him?
