Monday Memories-Shy Fiona
Fiona is the shyest out of all the dogs. When she was about 5 months old, Daddy started taking her on his work adventures. She was great in the car, but when he would stop at the gas station for a pit stop, Fiona would be so nervous she would tuck her tail under and hang her head low. So to help her get over her fear, Daddy would start running around the gas station with her and her head and tail would perk up.
Each time Daddy took Fiona he keep doing this until she was able to walk with confidence. Now believe me, Daddy has never read a book on dog training, watched any dog behavioral shows, nor does he listen to me most of the time. Somehow he just knew what to help overcome this shy little girl's fears. Fiona is still shy in certain areas, like meeting new people, but she shows none of when she is walking in public. Daddy's smart thinking, patience and consistency is why Fiona can confidently walk anywhere with her tail held high.
I'm just a little jealous I didn't think of it first. :)
