Freyja, The Shy Dog

Dear Daisy Mae,
Freyja is a soft-coated Wheaton Terrier. I am sending you a video of her happily playing in the Dog Park, but she is painfully shy when she meets new people. Recently we took her to Florida to visit my Mom, and she wouldn’t go near anyone. .What can we do to help her get past this?
Freyja’s Dad

Dear Dad,
Shyness is hard to overcome, and usually begins when a dog is a little puppy. Little by little, you may be able to encourage her to visit with people and holding her on your lap during visits. It takes patience and repetition and maybe some help from a dog trainer. Try it, and let me know.
Daisy Mae
