My puppy doesn't like going out!
Okay so I've taken some advice from another post and we've been working on it. Winter is 3 months old and we usually go for 2 walks a day and have been for 2 weeks. She doesn't seem to be getting any better though! She seems nervous the whole time unless there is complete silence and nobody in sight.
We went to the park this morning. She was not excited, didn't want to play. She just skulked around me sniffing at things. When we are walking, if a person/bike/pushchair comes past us, she will stop and backup to a wall, and stare until they are a long way past. And we've encountered a lot of people, she doesn't seem any more comfortable. This afternoon we walked to pick my son up from school, and although we were well out of the way she was so scared she was shaking.
When we come home from a walk, no matter how short she drags me home and as soon as we get indoors she goes crazy. I can tell she's glad to be home. Today we were waiting in our front garden and as people walked past (well out of reach) she was barking at them. Is this protective behaviour for her home? Is this okay?
We have puppy class in the morning, I think she's going to have a heart attack when faced with other dogs!
