I have a one year old shitzu and over the past month he has all of a sudden became scared of other dogs. When another dog comes around he runs away with his tale between his legs and wants me to pick him up. He used to always play with other dogs and I am just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how I should deal with this.
My dog rocky was also very scared of other dogs when we got him from the humane society. What worked best for us was taking him to an off leash dog park, on a leash. He could watch the other dogs and would become more curious than scared. If that wont work for you, try going to a obedience class where there are other dogs.
