Great article, Dave! Unfortunately, Abby was like that when we got her at 8 mos. so we have no idea if it was caused by earlier trauma or what. She also suffered from separation anxiety as well but that is okay now. When it comes to being combed she will eventually come to us but on her own terms! The antics we put ourselves through to encourage look pretty ridiculous but it works! The bath time is the only one where I finally just have to pull her out from under the table but just ignore the pee. We seem to be doing all the right things but just not always working. We have never yelled at her or been threatening towards her so I tend to think her problems were from an early trauma. She is much better than she was but I'm not sure she will ever be completely normal (whatever that is!). She is a bit of a marker, too.
