Bad nerves/Genetic issue puppies...

How did you socialize, and where did you take them? Any sports you found helped build confidence/ones that made it worse? Clicker training or other OB type?

I think a basic obedience class would be the place to start to help with confidence building. That is what we started both our puppies in. Our male did end up going into a class called reactive angels but I am really hoping our female puppy will be able to just continue in obedience and than we will do agility or a nosework course.

I do nosework, obedience and alot of playing to help my dogs confidence. Anything you can do where he can be praised or learn from is a good confidence builder.
