I would like some advice from you all.
Otto is great with us, infact very cheeky and bossy, but when friends or family call round to see us, he goes and hides under the chairs or sofa in the conservortry, and wont come out not even to a treat, is this normal?

hello there,i dont know if its normal but when we got oscar he was exactly the same.he would run yelping away and hide and as for the first time he saw a dog he weed all down the hall while running away..
he is fine now and really chilled,loves people and dogs.
what we did was get him to meet lots and lots of people and got those people to give him a treat and a fuss..i find baked liver works wonders,especially for training or little cubes of cheese..im sure he will get more social(its a big scarey world out there )

I found Augie was shy as a young pup. Once he had his vaccinations we socialized him to death. I took him places where there would be lots of other dogs to meet. He was unsure to begin with but I feel it was invaluable to him getting over his fears. Also, we signed him up for puppy school which was great because he was learning obedience while in the company of other dogs. This taught him to mind us even when there was a lot of distractions. Finally, we had our friends and family over to visit as much as possible to help him become aquainted with people of all ages. I think he still needs to spend more time around children but all in all he has gotten so much better.

Augie is 10 months now and he has started barking when the doorbell rings. I never imagined he'd be so loud after such a quiet start!

Otto has his seccond vacination next week so soon we will be able to take him out, but I carry him into the front garden to watch as people pass. Like you said Otto is frightened when he hears another dog bark from the garden down from us, he runs into the house. We will need to socialise him a lot
