So it was suggested that I take Tipsy out on our evening walks to see if we can add to that socialization checklist and help her gain more confidence – ultimately getting that tail up when she’s waking!
Well, she went the first 1/2 mile of our 2 mile trip walking, just with her tail wrapped firmly between her back legs. She was startled and would often stop at passing cars or other walking neighbors. To be honest, I think this is actually a really good start for her. I carried her for the remainder of the journey but will try again tomorrow to see if we can get the tail out from under her.
