As of today, I am fostering a 1-year-old Lab mix who is very sweet but also very unsure in his new surroundings. Is there some way to build his confidence or will it simply come with time? So far I have been giving him lots of treats, and we took a long walk when he first arrived this evening. Any other ideas?

If he likes to play ball or tug, that might help as well. Something fun to spend time together I think will increase his confidence. Classes are also a good thing to do as well, if you can


Congrats on the new foster!

It sounds to me like you will have no significant problems. I have noticed that sometimes it takes a new dog in the house a few days to adjust. But walking, play and kindness go a long way.

He is doing much better today! Bouncy, happy and chasing a ball. Also eating well and drinking plenty of water. He goes to the vet on Monday. Thanks everyone!
