Meeting strangers

Arrange gor a canine-loving friend to meet you and your dog outdoors. Ask your friend to kneel down to greet the puppy, as this will help dissuade it from jumping up. Also discourage direct eye contact, which can provoke a fearful or worried response-not uncommon in shepherds. Finally, provide your friend with your puppy’s favourite food treat to give as a reward for calmness.
