A gun-shy dog is one that has been poorly trained and has had a bad experience with guns. This can happen if the dog was not properly introduced to guns, or if they were punished for being afraid of them. Gun shyness is not a genetic trait, and it is something that can be fixed with proper training.
A gun nervous dog is one that has a genetic trait that makes them afraid of guns.
