Our Australian Shepherd is 1 year old, and she is not usually around kids. And when a kid is around, walking in the street, or tries to pet her, she won't stop barking, which makes me really nervous, and I don't really know what to do.
We went to obedience classes and the advise from the trainer was to make the kids give her treats but she won't receive treats from any kid. I am so worried, and sad because when the kids approach her she will scare them. :(
Does anyone else have the same problem? Does anyone know how can I help her, and make her feel safe around kids?
Ps. She is so good with adults and so friendly. She will roll over so they can rub her belly.
