How can I help my shy puppy be more confident?

Question from Puppy Class:

How can I help my shy puppy be more confident?

Answer:

You can give your puppy a new experience each week.  Visit a friend’s house, go to a different park or walk through a busy town.  The bonus is you can practise your training while growing puppy’s confidence. For instance, while walking through the town you might want to ask puppy to sit at the kerb before walking calmly across the street.

See you next time
