Just like humans, dogs have different personalities. Some dogs are simply more introverted than others.
Dogs who have had negative experiences with people or other dogs may be more likely to be introverted.
Don't force your dog to socialize if they don't want to. Allow them to do things at their own pace.
Give your dog a place where they can go to feel safe and relaxed. This could be a crate, a bed under a table, or even just a quiet corner of the house.
Introverted dogs can be just as happy and loving as their more outgoing counterparts. By understanding their personality and providing them with the support they need, you can help your introverted dog thrive.
