I have a 9 month old and since the day we have had her (when she was about 3 months) she has been skittish around certain people and situations.
For example if I take her on a car ride, if she is lying down on the floor and not looking out the window, she goes through the car ride without issues. But if she looks outside the window while the car is in motion she gets nervous and eventually throws up.
As far as the people situation, she either barks at them or doesn't go near them. If she's on a leash she tries to pull away. The odd thing is, she will go up to someone if they have a dog. She'll let the other pet owner pet her and rub her belly. She's not afraid of the dog. She loves to play with other dogs.
She'll also get excited to see a friend of mine that she doesn't see all the time, but gets nervous around someone she sees all the time. She's also afraid of plastic bags, vacuum cleaners, if I make a sudden move, etc. She also follows me or my wife all the time at home or any other place. Is this normal? If not is there some specific training we can provide her to help her get over some of her fears? She's a Husky/German Shepherd mix.
