Question New puppy seems terrified!

I just got a new anatolian/pyranees cross puppy. He is 16 weeks. I dont think he had ever been out of the pen. He was calm and loving and came right up to me so I chose him out of 13 puppies. He did great on the ride home. However, he did not want to get out of the car so my hubby lifted him out and he got off his leash and took off we caught him and he just seems terrified. I left him alone last night. This morning he came up to me but was still scared. I just dont know how to make him feel safe. I need a companion for out in the country. He is very afraid of the leash and collar. I might add he is a very big boy. I would say about 50 lbs already. I just dont know where to start with him. I have to be able to aproach him and he does have to have a leash for travel from field to field any advice?

Obviously the breeder did not socialize enough and something happened during the 8th week ---the fear week . Just go slowly ....no scolding !

OH no Im just still trying to bond with him. YOu can tell he wants to he even whines when I go in the house. I really hope this behavior improves. Im just trying to get him to come to me right now so I can love him. Any suggestions how to start him on a leash or should I wait for that? Ive just never had a dog so scared before. especially one this big.

Exclamation new puppy seems terrified

TO answer all your questions.
He spends all his time in backyard right now staying where he can see everything but just very standoffish. I have only had him 2 days.
When he is bonded he will be allowed to have run of the whole place and go with me from pasture to pasture and ride in tractor .... I really hope he comes out of this

For his leash and collar, put the collar on, and the leash, and let him drag the leash around. Thats all I know about your situation, but here is something else before you try this.

Show him the leash, and collar, treat him if he smells them. Click/Treat. Clicker training is wonderful. And maybe here is a great website that is wonderful too.

clickersolutions.com

Its wonderful. Good luck with everything!! Congrats on your puppy.

Bring him inside to be part of the family. When he is working he is outside when he is not he is part of the family.

If you want him to be a bonded-to-people guardian, you need to bring him inside. He needs human contact, lots of it. Neither breed is designed to work with people, they are designed to work on their own and make their own decisions about everything. To raise the type of guardian I feel that you want, he is going to need to be inside with you for at least a few months. Learn to be a dawg, not just a guardian. The guardian instinct is strong, and being stand-off-ish is desired when using this breed combination as guardians. To get him past that with you, he needs to bond with you. He needs to be treated like any other pet puppy that you might get. The guarding will come as he grows.

Totally agree ^^^ !!! No pup should be brought home and left outside !!! If you want him outside with you later , fine , but right now he needs family bonding !!!
