I’m not a trainer by any means but I’ve worked with a lot of rescue dogs and raised a couple of pups. I think your instinct is right on – I wouldn’t necessarily work with that person, but I’d say socialize, socialize, socialize. Anyone he has that response with, give them treats and have them work him some. Some dogs are naturally more suspicious and fearful, and it’s important you catch it early and work on their confidence. i didn’t and yeah, there were consequences. Just my 2cts.
