Re: Meeting people while on walks
When you meet people on the street - don't force her to do anything. If she wants to hide behind your leg, it's okay. Don't coddle her 'Oh come on Lila it's okay' None of that. Just ignore it, she'll come around.
Just keep things light when you meet new people - if they want to pet her, just tell them she's shy. Chances are if you talk to someone for a few minutes and they ignore her, she'll go over and sniff them.
Been there done that, my shy girl is a happy well adjusted 7 1/2 year old who's still a bit aloof but she hasn't hidden behind my leg in a looooong time.
