We'll be picking Cora up sometime this week and I'd like to get some advice on how to better socialize her. She is a six month old Border Collie/Lab mix, currently unspayed, and I'm unsure of her vaccination record (I don't know if they've given her any puppy shots or not, and I'm fairly sure she hasn't had her rabies yet). They acquired her as a pup around ten weeks old. She was raised on a farm with no socialization and when they adopted her, I don't think she ever left their house. They don't walk her, they don't take her places...she just stays in the house or the 6' privacy fence back yard. She's been able to experience a lot of guests coming over as well as various ages of children, but that's where he socialization ends. When I was taking her for a "test run" over the weekend, I noticed she is very skittish in new environments. Her response to something that scares her is to either put on the breaks, tuck tail, and run or to exhibit fear aggression (tucked tail, hackles up, barking - since she's fine with people and other animals and only spooks at inanimate objects/new environments her biting because she's pressured isn't really an issue, as she becomes more confident when she's around a person/dog). She's a very sweet, happy, submissive dog who just needs some more exposure to the real world. How should I go about socializing her? I've only ever socialized young puppies from the get go, or had stable adult dogs. She's fine with new people and dogs, so at least that is good. But inanimate objects/unexpected noises terrify her.
