The turtles are out today because of our wonderful 80 degree weather! (I'm so excited for summer!) and we discovered a brave one that was almost as big as Luca. 


She was so scared of it! Once it moved a little bit, it was game over. she ran with her (lack of) tail between her legs :P


Since I'm on the subject of being scared, she is also very scared of other dogs. She loves people. But other dogs scare her big time. I don't know how to handle that. Advice would be appreciated :]

Teddy is the same way. What helped him to get over being scared was for 2months I brought him to petcos puppy play time. He went to hiding in the corner to playing and greeting every dog he meets. Now on walks he still gets scared when he sees other dogs but no where near how he use to be

I think Obedience classes will help with the fear of other dogs. Meeting others in a controlled environment is pretty non-threatening and the training helps with confidence. Dog parks are to uncontrolled for a dog that is not confident.

I don't really have any advice, but Winston is kind of similar. He doesn't seem afraid of other dogs, but he isn't very interested in interacting with them. Whenever we take him to the dog park, he gets overwhelmed/uncomfortable if there are a lot of bigger dogs playing.


I don't know why he's like that and I don't know how to fix it either. Maybe someone on here can help us both!
