Don't: 

There are certain situations and actions you should attempt to avoid with your timid, fearful dog. They include:

  • Tethering her outside an establishment such as a cafe, store or library while you go inside. People coming and going will try to pet her; this will reinforce her fears, and perhaps cause a biting incident.
  • Forcing your dog into a fearful situation, thinkling it's a "sink-or-swim" solution. It will only make matter worse!
  • Telling friends and strangers to make eye contact with her and to reach out to greet her. Instead, let your dog initiate greeting.
  • Having large, boisterous groups in the home. Putting her into a room or a crate will make matters worse, because she can still hear the noise, but not go anywhere to avoid it. Only use the crate or room if it is located far enough away for her to not hear the stimulus. The hectic activity of children should particularly be avoided.
  • Don't do: Overbearing training styles
  • Forcing a shy, hiding dog out from under tables, sofas or chairs when scared. Instead, let her come out of her accord. If you must get her out, keep a leash on her in the home and use it to coax her out. 
  • Taking her into chaotic​ urban environs or areas with unpredictable activity, such as a skateboard park or a fireworks display. Instead, always think ahead, and choose venues you know won't panic her.
