NOTE: For those of you asking about older dogs that are already fearful, it is most certainly possible to improve their confidence! It is a much more complicated and often time consuming process than puppy socialisation (hence why socialisation is so important) but it can definitely be done. One of the topics of my upcoming videos will be helping fearful dogs.
