Need help with shy puppy

Hi everyone, our puppy is really shy around dogs of all sizes. He will run around in circles around us and won't let them near him. We have tried classes and taking him to dog park and different places. Just wondering if this is something they will grow out of? He is around 6 mths old now.Thanks

This sort of thing would probably be best handled with a trainer , one on one. Somewhere he's missed out and would need a modified reintroduction type approach. If you try to force things, you can end up doing more harm than good.

agree with dave.
These pups need to learn how to properly greet another dog, improves their self-confidence, otherwise it could result with fear and worse.
