Gemma continued to greet other strangers on the way to the ice cream place. I'm just so proud that she is becoming outgoing and friendly. She used to be so nervous and scared of everyone and everything. She even did her tricks for Anna when we were at her place. Gemma is definitely a shy and nervous dog by nature, but I think we're doing something right with the socializing to make her more confident. So for anyone else dealing with a shy or nervous pup, there is hope! :)
Perfect adorable Gemma!!!
I take great comfort in what you say here, how she blossomed into a friendly girl. I carry Kalisee to places that are busy so she can get used to it..shes pretty scared of everything outside! I hope she turns out like your adorable Gemma :)

Maybe if you get the video you can post it, I would love to see.

Carrying her is only going to get her used to one thing - being carried.

She can't become acclimatised, socialised and at one with her environment when she's being carried..
You are very right indeed....I only carry her temporarily because she has not had all her shots yet and I dont set her down outside at all. This is just until I can start leash walking her. Right now its a big step for her being in a busy town out of the sanctuary of home. :)

Enough of my hijacking the thread of Gemma the amazing girl!
