unsocialized fearful pup
we got our shiloh shepherd from a rescue and the lady there told us that the male/female dogs were bred, but the breeder died before the mother dog gave birth. well the family looking after the breeding dogs didnt want the puppies so when they were born they were 100% neglected, and never socialized with humans. We got him at 8 weeks, and he is about 11 weeks old now, and when we first got him he would always hide in the smallest corner of the room and refuse to do anything. now he is good around us, and plays with us (a bit aggressively, trying to fix the hard biting!), but he is still fearful of new places and new people. multiple trainers told us to keep taking him to new places and meet new people daily, but i wanted your guys input if that is the best way to do it? we have a private trainer that is going to be doing obendience training with us that specializes in behavior modification, general obedience, offleash etc.. and also trains service dogs, so we figured that would be the best way to go for now. he is also playing with my personal trainers dog a lot, and they play together, a little aggressive but decent. what else could you recommend?
