I never had issues with my male shephard. Now my black shepherd. Totally different story no different book! We always have people at the house, we take her out to parks. And she always acts fearful...Arg... I feel like a bad owner. Im thinking.. do THEY think I never take her out and socialize her? At home someone comes over shes curious but would rather stay on my bed at the other end of the house. If I am in a different room where the company is in another she will sometimes come lay under my feet... How on earth do I get her out of this behavior and is it because she is a girl that all female dogs do this. This is the first time I have had a female dog before.
