We got ourselves a 5-month old Great Pyrenees to guard our Turkeys and other livestock during the night... We had a goal to train the dog properly to be our LGD, this is our first time owning a large dog. We met the couple at Petco, in the parking lot to get the puppy, they had him in a tent like carrier in the backseat for their 3-4 hour drive - he got sick on the way, not really sure about how the trip actually went for him. It took a good 10 minutes to get the big guy out of his carrier and into our car, we took him home and started a very long process of getting him back out of the car and walking to the barn. He didn't eat the first night, but the next morning ate his food. It's been exactly a week of each day having the same behaviors - doesn't come out of the barn to go to the field - then vis-versa, even on leash, eats very little, shakes like I've never seen, and cowers in the corners, running from us at every chance. He seems more afraid of me, maybe that's because I'm a woman? He's not quite as timid when it's just my fiance out there with him. We've spent time just sitting in the field with him, we go down there to toss some scratch at all the birds around him, he sees that we're good to them, but is still just as cowardly as he was when we brought him home. He doesn't seem aggressive at all, not to us, not to our animals. Is he just missing his friends and family? Is this just "all in good time" and he'll be over it? Does it really take this much time to win the dog over? What's up with his complex towards women? What can I do to earn his trust without spoiling his training?
