Default Puppy with the shakes

Hi,

I have a 12 week old beagle and i got him 2 weeks ago.The last few days i have noticed he gets the shakes quite alot and it seems to be getting worse.He seems healthy apart from weeing alot which i guess is normal for a puppy.I went to the vets yesterday for his second jab and he had a his microchip put in.I did mention he was quite nervous when he goes near the front door(hes gets so frightened that he wees) And she said he will grow out of it.But i do worry and the more i see him shake the more it worries me.Am i just worrying too much?

Ours did it too..and eventually out grew it....if the vet isn't concerned then you should be either....more than likely just nerves....everything is new to him...with love and patience he'll become more confident with himself and his surroundings...

If your pup is showing other signs of being timid and fearful in general, I think you need to take this very seriously. There is a short window of opportunity in which to socialise puppies easily to new experiences and if yours is timid you will need to work twice as hard in order to prevent multiple problems later in life. Don't be tempted to try to protect your nervous pup from the world as so many well meaning people do - this is the worst thing you can do. Make a conscious effort to get him out and about to as many different places as you can. Have him meet as many of your friends and family as possible, remember to include men and children as they usually cause more problems for nervous dogs. Take him in the car, expose him to sights and sounds. Find well behaved friendly dogs and puppies to introduce him to, but be sure to keep him safe from those that will dent his confidence by being overly boisterous or aggressive.

Hi,

Thankyou.Hes not allowed out until sunday but after that i have every intention of taking him wherever i can.He will go on the school walks,Bike rides,shops and wherever else i can think of.I don't think he will like going out at first because he hates it when i walk him around the house on his leash(trying to get him prepared)But a little at a time.My family are all coming around on Thursday so he will meet a couple more children and a few more adults.He is very excitable and loves it when people come around hes just nervous when he first meets them.Give him a few minutes and hes fine.

Just a little suggestion, although you may be using one of these already!
I've found, almost by sheer accident, that you can get puppies to walk on a lease better if you use one of those pull-out stretchy leads instead of the normal shorter ones. I started practising around the garden at first, it kind of lets them think that they are walking on their own, going where they want but you are actually in control without them knowing it.

It just saves that battle of wills that you often get when trying to get them to walk on a lead. Obviously you don't let them have the lease at full stretch when walking in the street, but we all know that anyway don't we
