:crazy:I would like to first start off by saying thank you for taking a interest in helping with what I think is a problem. I have a 4 month old GSD, we have had her since she was 8wks old. Also in our home is a 7yr old Great Dane and 6yr old Chinese Pug. My GSD is very out going and hard to keep down when we are home, and does fine when we take her on walks. My concern is if anyone tries to approach us she hides behind me or between my legs. I carry her favorite treats with us to have strangers offer them to her when out, she will take them cautiously and run back behind me. When it comes to other dogs she seems to be fine, now the bigger the dog the more vocal she becomes ex: She thought she would try to take on a pitbull the other day while on our walk. It is people she is afraid of. Anyone new that comes in our home she hides under the table for awhile. She will not leave my side for anything! I feel bad for her because I know she has to become exhausted trying to follow me everywhere, and I do mean EVERYWHERE! I am a stay at home wife so she is never alone. Is her fearfulness something she will out grow typically? If not is there special training to help her?
