Momo is shy
Sorry if i posted this in the wrong section, and if possible please move to the right section.
anyways, momo is about 14 months old, but he won't play with any other dogs or yorkie friends? Is there anyway we can get him to come out of his shell? I was thinking of keeping him and his friend yorkie in the room and hoping he'd learn to play, but i dont want to stress him out. Need advice please!!

If you have a friend with a dog it would be a good Idea for you to take both dogs for a walk. That will help your dog to bond with an other dog. that could be a start.

My yorkie is very shy also...
When we got pepper, it was very obvious that she had been abused. At only a year old we were her fourth owner and she had been sent from different breeders across the country. Every time someone new came around, she puked and started shaking.
Our vet told us to let her come out of her shell on her own and to watch carefully and give her treats at the first sign of involvement to encourage her to come closer. We have slowly brought her around more new people and pets and she does a better job every time.
My advice is to pay attention and to give a treat if she starts interacting, encourage playing by keeping her favorite toys nearby and I know it sounds corny, but tell her how proud of her you are when she does.
Hope this helps and best of luck.
