We got our first lab puppy in February when she was 10 weeks old. Everything was going great with her socialization at first, we were taking her to stores and getting her out around people and walking her in the neighborhood. She was a champ about all new experiences. Then the virus hit and starting March 17th, we were locked down and could only walk in the neighborhood and rarely saw another person and when we did it was from a great distance and they acted afraid of us. Fast forward to the end of May when she was nearly 6 months old and we finally took her out again and now she barks at everything and doesn’t want anyone to pet her. Then we were finally able to the dog park for the first time when it reopened the first weekend in July and she is terrified of other dogs. Not aggressive at all, just doesn’t want them to sniff her or play with her, or look at her. She barks furiously at them through the fence, then runs from them when they’re in the same space. We have continued to take her places and she does well until someone pets her (she sniffs them, licks their hands, then backs up and barks at them), or she sees another dog (she barks immediately). We took her to her breeder’s house and let her be around an old dog who lives there. She was super scared of him at first, but eventually settled down in his presence after 45 minutes or so. We haven’t been able to go to dog school yet because they all shut down for the virus and none have reopened in our area. Sorry this turned out to be so long, just wanted to give you the full story. Any suggestions for helping to socialize her? Are we doing the right thing by continuing to take her places and letting people interact with her? Thank you for any insight you can provide!!
