I was wondering if anyone else's Cockapoo has something they are absolutely afraid of and will run a mile to avoid.

Poppy for some reason is scared of empty plastic bottles!!! she will avoid them completely. :confused:

Scamp is afraid of anything new !! He even barked at a dead tree the other day :D He doesn't like people wearing crash helmets or cycle helmets, he will bark at anything new and will run towards things, skid to a halt, bark and run back to me - he really is a big baby !:)

Izzy is the same as Scamp. Unfortunately she is also afraid of most other dogs until she has met them several times. Her fear is expressed as aggression and is very embarrassing at times. She goes to a kennels for socialisation one day a week and that is helping.

Our neighbours have just got a new parasol and put it in their garden - unopened ! Scamp just went outside and spotted it over the fence and barked and barked... it wasn't until I went out and went over to the fence that he stopped. He cautiously came over, sniffed under the fence , then went off to do his wee !!
The fence is 6 ft high so its not like the parasol was even encroaching over to us, Scamp only spotted it from the other side of our garden . He really is quite mad :D

Poppy will bark at anything she's scared of then come running back to me and hide behind me. I've been trying to desensitise her to plastic bottles. It seems that it's large bottles she's scared of. I gave her a small Evian bottle today, with out the cap obviously, and she absolutely loved it. I stuck some kibble in it and she sat there happy as a Larry trying to get them out which she managed to do

Chloe doesn't like things like motorcycles,bikes,wheelchairs,stollers. It can be embarrassing when she barks or growls at them but thankfully, she is getting better about it. Yesterday, we walked by a motorcycle that had a cover over it and she was VERY offended by it and had to let the world know.

Oakley hates it when I change the bin bag in out kitchen bin, when I shake the new bin bag to place it in the bin he always barks ...really strange but I have learnt not to shake it open but to do it more calmly and slowly now ... the things we change in our lifes to suit our cockapoos ...
