see rethinking "popular" early socialization

this CAN'T happen "want to teach him how to protect me ( I'm a tiny girl with a big dog)." not with a dog that
"he's scared of EVERYTHING. " You start praising for what you think is protection and you create an even bigger problem.

His hyper excitement to people has an base of anxiety . The behaviour , if the dog were a person, would warrant a restraining order .
