    Default Fear period on 8 months old GP?

    Hello everyone!

    So we had a little episode tonight when some random woman approached us from behind and Hilda Started to run in fear to opposite direction. We'v had couple of these and all during late night.

    Well i called to wife to come from the opposite direction and Hilda sure was fearing her too at the beginning, but once my wife got close enough Hilda seemed relieved and started to run happily around her.

    Is this some sort of passing state of her growth or? How should i behave if we have these events again?

    No way to tell whether this is just a fear period reaction other than continue to take her out and with every opportunity of encountering people, encourage her and give her positive feedback if she doesn't freak. Even if she does act nervous, talk to her calmly through the encounter. They pick up the tone in your voice so if you are confident and encouraging, it should help her.
