Calc. Carb.-Love their home and do not handle change that well, thus going outside. Fat, flabby, sour smelling, easily fatigued.
Need more constitutional details to zero in on this.

He's afraid of people and doesnt like them to approach him, even at home when a stranger comes he hides from him.
He's energetic and always in a hurry outside.
Looking backwords all the time to see wether someone is behind him.

Aconite-Cowering and terrified, fear, hysteria, panic, fear of being captured, handled and in the possession of humans.
Argentum Nit.-Fear of flying, traveling, heights, stage fright, crowds, and people in general. Runs when scared, this is key. Apprehension usually followed by defecation or urination. Trembles easily, scared, restless, excited, hurried, worried, dislike being on stage, diarrhea, weakness, trembling.
Arsenicum Album-Insecure animals, do not like to be left alone, loneliness worsens the symptoms, fearful, nervous, restless, they are afraid of strangers, may disappear as soon as company arrives, and only re-appear as soon as company has left. They prefer heat, warmth, under the covers, on heating vents, etc. Frequent sips of water and they appear hungry but may only hang their heads over the food bowl. They have a cold or anxious constitution and when they rest they like to keep their heads high or rest them on something.
Hope this helps.
Some where there is some remedy for individuals who do not like to be followed, do not like someone behind them. I did not write it down and forgot where I read this. I read it some where. Or maybe she has a fear of people in general, whatever medical term that is?
Gelsemium-Paralyzed from fear, oppostite of Argentum Nit. Anticipated fear with diarrhea, fear of vet, trembling, crouched position, timid and shy by nature.

Can you tell me some more about this remedy in dogs ?
The thing with his that he was raised till the age of 6 months (when I took him) without contact to the outside world.
He was raised in a ROOM for the whole period , defecating and urinating in the room ,like a prisoner.
I dont know if he was further abused , but he was in a terrible physical and mental states when I took him from his "nice" owner.
Thanx for the help.

Staphysagria-Submissive, cowardice, due to any form of abuse, sensitive to harsh sounds, harsh voice, and friendly attempts to come heasr the animal. They cower from yelling, or any quick movement, from being previously abused or hurt. Bladder infections and styes. They appear calm, but are angry, humiliated, and resentful. Aversion to touch. Grief, being kennelled, prefer women.
If he goes bannanas and cannot stand being away from you, like when you leave home, that is a whole nother group of remedies like Ignatia, Nat mur. etc.
Ignatia is very good for any animal that has a past of grief, abandonment, neglect, self-mutilation, loss of appetite from this, loss of anyone from death, etc.
I gave you most of the details I could find on Argentum Nit. Read your notes about the modalities for this remedy and if they don't fit, consider Staphysagria or something else.
Teach yourself T-touch or Tellington Touch and whenever you are out in public with the dog and he starts to display fear or anxiety, etc. do T-Touch. It redirects their energy and yes, it works.

Ours is a rescued dog found wandering:
He COWERS when we go to put a collar on him- I have seen him sit on his two hind legs, sit up and BEGS not to have the collar pot on in a very human fashion.
He REFUSES TO Leave THE House and hauls to be returned-will only go out to pee etc with company or when he is tied to the house.
Can't even take him for a walk. His REFUSAL to go out is worse at night.
He loves all people.
Reminds me of one who was caged and was only brought out to clean the cage type of thing- a prisoner?
The only time he reacted with anything other than loving people was when we took the big broom ( that was OK) but when we turned it over to scrape snow off the patio, he growled in a snarly fashion but made no aggressive moves- fear growling?this was the only time in a year that we have seen the growl.
He is home alone when his people go to work-prefers company and whines happily when they get back but is not destructive-just says on his blanket.
Meo stays on his blanket in one area near the door most of the day and only ( after a year) began to walk around the house very very rarely and got up on the couch once- this happened after I gave him four doses 30C aqueous solution Phosphorus 10 days apart but I know this is not the right remedy.
prisoner who cowers but loves people??
Meo is in a very loving forever home and his people would love to be able to take him for a walk etc. In fact his lack of exercise is turning him into a very big boy :-)
