Afraid of nose ring?
Hello all! This is my first post, and I'd like to offer a little background before I ask my question. My fiance was parent to a Havanese named Lizzie when we met (sadly, she is no longer with us). Lizzie eventually warmed up to me, but was initially quite unsure of me. We weren't sure why, until I first met my fiance's parents' Havanese, Sophie. Sophie was immediately skittish of me, and always seemed to be headed in the opposite direction. I've never had this issue with any other breed (my family has always had German Shepherds and Labs), so I was quite upset by this behavior. My future mother-in-law suggested that it was perhaps due to the fact that I have a septum piercing (the center of the nose; aka "bull ring"). Has anyone else encountered this issue, and if so, how was it resolved?
