Puppy not a people person?!
So Stella has been in training for 3 weeks now we do day training at the kennel that I work at. She really has blossomed and become a wonderful dog! I still can't believe how smart she is, I feel everyday she learns something new! She knows sit, stay, down, climb (on elevated surface **My Favorite**), Spin, Tiwst (where she goes between my legs), touch and is beginning to really learning heel.
Now the problem I am having is at work when I have her out on her "climb" she is perfect lets everyone pet her and loves it. When we are out places she is confident and loves to be out BUT the moment someone she doesnt know tries to pet her she tries to hide and wants no part of it. Now I am ok with her not running up to people everytime she see someone but, I would like the option for people to pet her if I feel it is ok. I have tried giving them treats to give her and she just takes it and is over the person lol. I literally take her everywhere and have done alot of socialization with her its like she has no interest in other people besides my husband and I and of course her trainer with all the cookies!
Anyone have similar experiences or advice?!
