Help for Your Shy Dog: Turning Your Terrified Dog into a Terrific Pet by Deborah Wood.
Paperback: 192 p. Publisher: Howell Book House (1999)
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. As shyness may be aggravated by the loss of home this book is also recommended for new owners who adopted a dog from a shelter or rescue.   more information
