I've had my dog for over 2 years now and she's always been jumpy/scared/cautious (got her from a shelter when she was 8-10 wks old)...like when I first saw her she was in a foster home with her sister and her sister was running around playing with us while she hid under the BBQ grill. The foster parents said when they first got her she was crying for nights and was scared to come out and they just let her come out when she was ready two days later. Up until now she doesn't like to be petted over her head..she doesn't mind under her mouth but you gotta go slow...any sudden movements and she will run away and hide. She's not really scared now but I'm noticing that any movements i make she runs away. I think i might have scared the beejeezus out of her by accident a couple of weeks ago too...i was on my computer and she was lying down behind me and i put my hand behind my chair to pet her and I guess b/c the chair was blocking me she didn't know what touched her and she bolted my room. Now i can't even get her to come in my room. any suggestions on what i can do?I need to get her confidence up.
