Breaking down and being fearful in the manor you are describing is due to lack of being socialized or poor socializing. How old is the puppy?

Each dog in terms of training will react differently and going about it should be adjusted based on the severity and how strong the puppies mentality is. You need to slowly introduce your pup to new sights, smells and sounds in a positive way.. Always remain positive on introducing new things. Do not get stressed or aggravated as you will only counter act what you are trying to do.

Also do not push your puppy beyond what she can handle on any given session. Start with very relaxed environments and slowly work your way up to more populated. The harder you push her the more she is going to break down.

Where did you get her from? Was the breeder breeding dogs to benefit the breed or were they a BYB? Meaning, are they breeding true to the dogs roots in temperament, function and conformation or were they just breeding because its "fun", a "hobby", to make money or any other reason other than for the dogs?

Either way you need to take it slow and be full of encouragement, it will more than likely prove to be a slow road ahead with minor set backs but if you keep it up, remain positive you can regain her self confidence.

Take it slow and steady Do not coddle your pup by telling them it is okay and talking to them in a baby voice will only make it worse the pup will think it is okay to act that way. If you are condifident your pup will follow your lead. praiseis a good thing. Lots of it when you get through a rough patch and the pup is going along merrily praise. Priase for the behavoir you want to see in your pup.
