Bella’s making friends!

We all know how hard it is to adapt to a new environment. As Bella has become acclimated to her new foster home, she is a bit apprehensive of strangers coming over. Luckily her foster mom works at home and has clients that come over for meetings, which is the perfect opportunity to practice meeting strangers.

At first, she barked a bit and the visitor was asked to “ignore her”, and then a few treats came into the picture. An then, as we can see in these pictures, in just a matter of a few minutes she came and laid down by their feet. And before you know it she was laying her head on her new friends foot!  And that is how it’s done. Patience and gentle introductions help pave the way for a confident pup.
