Yea.. I kinda just want to go so she can hopefully see some more puppies in her life. Maybe friendlier, non giant ones that won't terrify her :D
Would it be good to take her somewhere with loads of people? Like that class, downtown, or would it overwhelm her and make the fear worse? :/

I would recommend calling a trainer Maybe getting her into a socialization class with knowledgeable trainers in a controlled environment.

I would also suggest having people come over, and when they walk in the door to have dog cookies waiting for them to give to her. To show that people bring good stuff! Worked wonders on my human aggressive boy

I would get a trainer if I could afford it. I'm 17 and currently jobless, my parets don't want to "waste money" on that stuff :(
I've been reading as much as I can online :/
I'll try that cookie stuff tho!

Where is the breeder input in all of this? If she came from a good reputable breeder they should be helping you out here! If she came from a backyard breeder then you're SOL in that regard.

Also, I agree with whoever mentioned a vet visit may be in order to rule out UTI.

Best wishes!

My neighbor has an old weenie dog (by old I mean 6.. and his face is all grey.. he aged a lot), but he's recovering from some sort of liver problem so I don't really want to introduce them.

She's terrified of everyone, I've been getting her out in public a lot but it's going really slow. She'll sniff people at least, but other dogs scare her so much! :(
We're checking out a free pet smart orientation puppy class this saturday hopefully.
Well this has been one of the most exciting posts I've followed in a while, haha, all the tension and stuff.

She still having those peeing issues? Have you pretty much ruled out bladder issues? I only ask again about this because we have a Sheltie which is prone to UTI's and when she gets them she has a totol different temperment almost like she knows shes sick and is mean about it.
sounds like your getting her out and about which is good, she needs to get acclimated with the outside world and people. You might want to just take her to Petsmart when you can to get used to the people and dogs. It can be a good place for that without overwhelming her with alot of dogs at once.
Just wondering to about her biting, does she do it in a nasty way or is she just tring to play with the other dog?
