Hi, I'm a rat terrier named Hank, and I am VERY shy. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to get me less timid.

Hi Hank! I am pretty shy sometimes as well. My Mommie tries to socialize me as much as possible. Good luck!cheer

Hello Hank, My name is Venninne and I can be timid at times too. I am a rescue so I don't know if we have a similar history, but when you figure out how to help this little issue of ours, let us know so we can try it too!!

wave all of you shy Rat Terriers!
I used to be so shy and and even had some fear aggression because of it!
My mom started taking me to PetSmart and Petco and any other place that allowed dogs. She took a bag full of treats and asked every stranger she met if they would give me a treat and pet me. It took several of these outings to get me ot overcome my shyness but it did work!
The dog park is another good place to visit~~lots of dog lovers there who would be willing to help with the therapy!
Good Luck,
TJ

I was quite shy and nervous at first, I wouldn't take the treats unless offered by a child! Mom finally found some irresistable treats that I would take from anyone!

It was freeze-dried liver! Yummy stuff!

I won't take treats from anyone except mom and dad. I like meeting new dogs, but people I don't care about I just want my mom and dad.

shrug this is interesting ..... I am a rattie mixed with unknown Dad... Mom is a about a 9 lb. mostly white rat. But I look like a min pin! Some tease me and say I'm part chihuahua....like that is bad? . They say it's why I'm skiddish... but maybe it's the rat in me that is skddish too. My Mommy is going to try that treat trick (boy I'm all for that idea! I love treats).
Sometimes I don't even go to Mom at first, but I really just want to be on her lap.

Hi there...I am almost 4 years old and I too am skittish. I love excitement, but when people come to the house, I am interested but back away from them. It takes me a little bit to earn my trust, but when you do, I am very lovable and sweet....I also tend to bark when excited...anyone else do that?
