I don't think it is an alpha issue. Seems like a general fear. At first it seemed like everybody and my next days off we will try some other new people.
I would love to see a behaviorist but there just isn't one available in under a three hour drive.
Since being tied to me didn't seem to work well we switched and tied him to wife were he felt safe. I am slowly encroaching in his comfort zone and things "seem" to be working.
I hope this works. I"/we need something as he is so good with everyone when I am not around.
THanks for all the advice
