Hey everyone, I'm new to this whole kind of thing with owning a german shepherd (actually it's my first dog), I'm curious to know if any other owners had a pup that didn't like socializing and was afraid of strangers, car noises, hesitant to walk forward during walks, alert of other dogs and barking, shy and timid. I talked to my Vet about it and she said it wasn't normal for a puppy to do that, originally the pup that I adopted was with his brother but parted ways due to the adoption fees. He is 3 months old and doesn't like to go out and explore walks, if he doesn't walk anymore I just carry him. To socialize a dog do we mean socializing with other dogs and people? because currently my dog has only been socializing with people and children, my brothers and sisters come inside his exercise pen to play with him every day, we go on walks minimum 2 times a day and play in the yard 3 times a day, I'm worried the shyness will eventually turn into fear aggression towards strangers, any help? Thanks!
