My 17 week old puppy is very nervous
I have had my puppy about 10 weeks now or so, and she has always been very shy, and nervous.. especially around people she doesn't know. She is cool around me and my family, but if a new dog, or person comes around that she doesn't know she will get very tense.
I also have a very hard time getting her used the the leash. Every time I put it on her she acts like I am abusing her, and she tucks her tail and whimpers.
She is a mix between a black lab and a border collie. I really would like any ideas on how to get her to stop being so afraid and shy of everything.
