Will you be training in your garage or basement, or as some agility addicts, in your living room.
For these shy dogs make certain your equipment is good,secure and tough. The suspension table is a good place to begin your agility training.

A 12” high suspension table, with adjustable legs for later use, is a good starting place for all size dogs. Remember with your shy dog, setup your table in an area that is very close to your dog.

If your dog barks at anything new, just leave your suspension table in your house or yard for a week or two, let your dog inspect and smell it on his own or with a little coaxing, but don’t push to fast, remember always to take baby steps with the insecure dog.

With treats in a dish or his favorite toy placed on the table encourage your dog to get up on the table. This may take more than one lesson, be patient.Never give up.Do it with Love

If your timid dog looses interest in food or toys when you attempt something new, trying holding him and you sit on the table. If your dog is too big to hold, have him on leash and you sit on the table.

If he backs away coax him, only treat or reward him when he comes to you, never when he’s pulling back away from you or the table.

Eventually, you want your dog to be able to jump on the table with your cue word, “Table”, “Box”, “Kennel”, whatever word you use, Stay on the table as you back away and then Come when you call. Build your distance slowly so that your dog is not pushed to soon.

From the suspension Table to Contact Trainer is a nice transition for shy dog. A Contact Trainer comes in different designs.

We recommend a 3-Piece Contact Trainer that has one mini A-frame side, a suspension Table, and then a mini Dog-walk side.

Your dog can Sit on the table and then be coaxed down the A-frame side or the Dog-walk side. Just remember with the shy dog, training is done in small growths, slowly and comfortably, with a little push to add more to him, but not enough to overwhelm him.

You can follow the above techniques introducing new obstacles as your dog is able to succeed. As your dog succeeds on each new piece of equipment you will see his confidence grow.
Always do it with LOVE.Be PATIENT with them.You'll be rewarded later for your hard work.Believe me.I'am a dog owner and I went through that already.
Good Luck!!!!
