So I’ve been reading up on how to socialize gently online, and bringing her to puppy class (the classes are small, only one other puppy in both her classes) and it’s been a success so far! Her last class she was approaching the other puppy all on her own to sniff noses and whatnot. She is still a bit jumpy but I let her do her thing and don’t force her to anything, and just praise her when she interacts. The trainer and the other people in the class said she was noticeably more interactive.
Currently new issue is she is very very sad whenever she has to put her harness on. She hides. Makes no sense because she seems to really like walks, and is always running around and sniffing everything she can. She won’t take treats either when she’s sulking, I’ve tried bribing her there. Once she’s had it on for a bit she doesn’t even notice it anymore.
