    Default All of sudden she is shy at 6months?

    Within the past week or so our little 6 month old bulldog (English) has become very shy around strangers ?very bothered by children on scooters? Bothered by School buses? She was not always this way...has anyone else had this?

    Nothing different at home... We did take her for a day visit to Santa monica last weekend.....she was startled by the cars and people...but we had taken her to the same location a month prior and she was just fine...not bothered by the cars and such?

    Maybe it is just one of those phases.. Numerous short outings rather than long ones at this age is probably better. She is becoming more aware of her surroundings as she gets older. Do continue to introduce her to new things though because we did that with Dublin from a very early age and now at two she is extremely sociable. She goes boating with us and is always invited to dinner when were are. I think they really want to invite her more than us. We introduced her to car rides at the very begining also and just took her on a 2300 mile car ride from FL to NYC to take my son to college..She was awesome. She is totally at ease with all outside noises and activities but she continues to be terrified of the vacuum cleaner.. As Cesar would say "dont' give into your dog's anxieties because you will ultimately deny them so much pleasure". Slow and steady wins the race...

    I'm probably going to sound paranoid here but I'm going to say it anyway. It's probably nothing but watch her for other signs that something is wrong. I've noticed Abby gets very skiddish and needy when she doesn't feel well. 90% of the time she is this fearless ball of red fire. But when her numbers are up or she is nauseous or about to throw up, she is afraid of everything. The doorbell will send her flying into my lap and shaking in fear.

    For me, her name was Abby
