My 9 week old puppy is wonderful but seems to be apprehensive and/or very aloof around strangers. We are socializing her every day with friends, or carrying her in our arms in stores. Today when my 22 year old daughter (she has only met her once before) walked in my room Skye barked and growled. Once my daughter approached slowly and gave her time she was fine - I had Amy feed her treats and she quickly warmed up. Given my pup's passive nature, I'm a bit worried that she will be a shy adult. Her temperment is sweet, calm but really undecided about new people; very reserved. Each day socializing is helping - don't want to overwhelm her though. I will be attending puppy classes once her immunizations are further along.
Please help...does growling mean fear -biting in future?
