LARISSA’S PET TIPS:

  • Start getting your dog desensitized to people coming over now! Ring the doorbell, walk in and out of the door, and praise your pup.
  • Make sure all guests are aware that the dog is nervous. No chasing, coming up from behind, or lunging to pick them up!
  • Give everyone who comes to dinner a treat, so that your pup will associate new people with yummy things!
  • Lastly, make sure to have a "safe" room to put her/him if she gets overwhelmed. Pay attention to their body language and don't push her/him into being around people if it's too scary!
