My Dog Hates Me... :(|
Tim's probably just a natural canine pacifier, as I tend to be ... dogs, even "problem" and "aggressive" dogs seem to become comfortable with me much faster than with others, and quite a few dogs have even taken to me over their lifelong owners.
My take on canine companionship is vastly different from just about anyone else's that I know ... I don't believe in training a dog to 'behave'; I'd much sooner move someplace I could keep the dog safe and sound on acres of romping ground (with digproofed fencing) and no humans around to offend if and when my companions feel compelled to express themselves verbally. I've been a companion to a number of rescues and have never had a problem, aside from seperation anxiety when I had to go somewhere (like work) I could not take them with. I was never fully successful at relieving that, though getting both additional canine and human companions for my critters to spend time with them during seperation anxiety did help somewhat.
Fear and aggression toward me healed over time by simply spending as much time as I could with my companions, including sleeping.
My methods are probably not yours, and its not as though I had an exact solution anyway, but ... I wish you the best. The move was probably very stressful for her and it may take her more time yet to adjust.
