Socializing a Shy Dog

Wednesday, September 7, 2016
posted by Jim Murphy

cuteshydogDogs that are shy or wary of strangers have either had a bad experience with people or weren’t well socialized as puppies. Only positive experiences can build up their confidence. If your dog is one of these shy types, you’ll need a good strategy and lots of patience. Arrange to meet a friend when you’re out with your dog. Ask the person to stop and chat but ignore the dog. Don’t talk or even look at him. Wait until you see your dog is relaxed, them give him a dog treat then go on your way. Repeat this exercise often with that friend and others until your dog no longer tenses up in their company. The trick is to notice when your dog relaxes. That’s when you can praise him, pet him and offer treats maybe even buy him a new dog toy. In time, he’ll enjoy the challenge of meeting new people.

Remember, your pets count!

As fall approaches, your dog will need to stay warm and may also need a Halloween costume. Shop The Pet Product Guru Store for all of your pets needs.

20160906_161856Yesterday, I had the pleasure of accompanying my neighbor and her dog, Dewey to the new dog park in Lewes, Delaware. Over five acres have been reserved for our furry friends. Dogs, of all kinds can run, play and chase each other and get all the exercise that they need. You can bring your dogs favorite dog toy and toss it till your hearts content!  Both you and your dog will benefit from this wonderful place. There’s even a separate section for small or shy dogs. A large area is also being designated for future dog events.

There should be more dog parks in cities and towns across this country. Your dog will not only get the exercise that he needs but he will also have the opportunity to socialize with other dogs and who knows, you may even meet the person of your dreams at the park!

Socialization is essential for all dogs. Since we all live busy lives, our best friends usually are left alone for long periods throughout the day. The dog park is a life saver! Dogs and their owners love the park! There is an annual fee of $60 to join.. Members are given a code and can access the park anytime during designated hours.

Dewey was pooped at the end of our visit. Make sure you have a comfy dog bed ready for your best friend after his visit to the park and don’t forget those treats!

Remember, your pets count!
