    ok so Bella is being a Mastiff....she afraid of one flooring in my office....this started a couple months back for some reason she doesn't like dark flooring.... At first I thought she was just afraid of going threw the door threshold. It turns out it's the floor she has problems with. Yesterday I took her to the office....first time in a couple weeks. She refused to walk out of my office threw the meeting room to leave at the end of the day.... it wasn't until I layer a pathway of towels down for her to walk on before she would step into the room....Once the towels was done she had no problems walking out to get out of the office.
    Each time she gets more fearful of this floor... I don't know if it's because it's a darker colour or what it is...any ideas? I would really like to help her threw this but I can't go over a 1/2 hour each time to get her out of the office to go home..... I would really hate having to no longer be able to bring Bella to work.

    I am unable to help as I have yet to find a solution to that particular behavioral problem. Kryten started when we changed the flooring in one room. We put down a rug and things were ok unless the rug got bunched up. It has now become all of the hard floors but not all of the time. Sometimes he will cross the floor, immediately turn around and suddenly be stuck in place.
    I do attribute it in part to the fact he does have bad joints but I don't know if that is in fact true.

    No Bella's joints are good. She's the same way in my kitchen, will mostly only walk on the carpet runner. I don't know.... maybe if I try training with MVT she'll get over it.
