She is fear aggressive and doesn't like strangers, being touched or new dogs unless I have introduced them through work not letting them intro themselves. She doesn't like cuddles or being petted and will sound v v aggressive if strangers try, then shoots off and cowers. Hundreds on vets trainers etc and nothing has worked, they all say its in her!!

mines half patterdale half lab and she has a book of issues. Only dog I ever know that has been so bad!!! But in some ways you can't fault her, top tip never let your OH buy an only pup where you can't meet both parents. But he said she was cute and he couldn't leave her!!!!

My dog loves the garden but my biggest issue is inky would rather run on my plants and Pee there than on the lawn. I have had to put sticks and wire up at about a foot and a foot and a half tall to keep her off. But at every opportunity she will hop over the wall and in to the garden rather than the lawn!!!

That's what I thought? But the lawn in total at the back is only about 9ftx 11ft so I have to be careful not to make it look too out if proportion!!! Everything is just looking so sad! It's heavy clay too and want to improve it but can't add more because if I pick up the height too much then it will sit on and rot my fence! But how do I improve the soil when I have plants in!

Imagine my excitement....

But somehow its addictive as I want insurance policies incase my plants didn't come through winter!!

Nothing for it, will have to make my boarders deeper. They are only 1.5ft and my other half said he only wanted me to take 1/2 ft of the lawn up! Looks like I will need to creep it up to 3 ft, leaving about a 5ft lawn!!!! Ooops

Imagine my excitement....
