Meeting new people
When we first got Millie she would happily run and greet anyone. No fear. A week ago my trainer came here and kind of fell over as she went down to meet her. It definitely startled her an she was scared of my trainer for the first part of the lesson but by the time she went home Millie would eat treats out of her hand and didn't mind if she was close.
Ever since then , Millie has been shy to meet people outside of our immediate family. Small children she will run up to without any sign of fear. Everyone else we need to give treats and she will take it from them immediately but if they move at all she will run and then come back for more treats.
Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong?
Any advice would be wonderful. I am always so worried that I have ruined her.
