Fifteen to twenty percent of dogs are born with a tendency towards introversion and fearfulness, leading to behaviors like uncontrolled submissive urination, fear-aggression, and inability to bond with humans. With understanding and the right training, fearful dogs need not be condemned as bad pets; rather, they can become some of the happiest and most deeply bonded dogs around—the epitome of great pets.

    The Best Help Book for Shy Dogs

    I got a puppy from the Humane Society and did not know what I was in for. This book helped bring my shy dog out of his shell. He has a way to go, but he has made many strides already. I thank Deborah Wood for this book. It is a must have for any shy dog owner.

    Great information

    I have been volunteering with an animal shelter for a year and have some experience with shy dogs. I recently adopted a shy dog and needed help with her. I found some good information in this book and I'm using it with the other shelter dogs too. I would recommend it for use as a supplimental help book.

    Recommend very helpful

    I adopted a 9 yr old Sheltie 2 months ago she had lived as a backyard breeder for 7 yrs. Having never had a shy unsocialized dog before I needed guidance, this book provided it. The author had a different take on shyness than others I have read and talked to. We put several of the suggestions to use and on month 3 she has come a long way. Some of our friends are asking for advice. I loan them the book!
