Timid Dogs - A Bit Afraid at First
- Timid dogs generally have exceptional dog skills and are often very submissive with their peers.
- They can be shy at first but are very loving and over time they will become more comfortable and confident.
- Timid dogs bond deeply with the people in their home once a proper welcome has been made.
Timid dogs often do best in homes with other dogs and in some instance require them. They are particularly good in homes where dog social skills are highly valued. They tend to prefer a quieter lifestyle and they may be timid around men in particular. Single women and mature couples are often a good match. Timid dogs can do well with kids who are quiet and gentle. Suburban or rural life are better than urban settings.
