Dog Behaviour Expert
Hi Anon, nice to hear from you and the old saying 'you can teach an old dog new tricks' definately applies!
This is not something i can really give info on the forum as it is pretty details, but do get in touch with a behaviourist and you will have this sorted out in no time - both the being scared of people and the walking. What you need to realize is this poor child is acting out of fear, and when he is taught a different way of acting and desensitized to people, his behaviour will change accordingly. You can Google canine behaviour consultant and find somebody in your area or contact me via my e-mail and i will put you in touch with somebody, good luck, Scotty
