PostSubject: We Went to the Park!   Mon Jan 11, 2010 6:20 pm

Yesterday I went to the park with some friends and the family. I took along Junior and my sister brought Sheetza. I had absolutely no worries about Junior meeting people, he lets everyone pet him but after 2 seconds he just wants to go back to his walk. The only problem I have is Junior meeting other dogs, he isn't the nicest at the begining (his previous owners didn't socialize him at all). A close friend of mine brought his dog as well, a poodle mix, and I was N.E.R.V.O.U.S!

But I let the leash unwind (its a retrackable) and let Junior meet my friends dog. After one or two growls Junior was A-OK with her being around! It was great! So we went on a walk which is what I believed one of the best stress relievers for Junior, after that no more growling Cool

Sheetza of course had all sorts of trouble with meeting people. Although he wasn't so aggressive when my sister isn't near her (she has all the confidence in the world when she's with her).

Anywho, it was great and I'm hoping to go next week again, maybe pictures? Wink

Ya I think I'll tackle Juniors socialization problem first, it seems like the easiest at the moment, he just needs to learn how to meet a dog, after that he usually does fine. Later will come Sheetza, even though thats actually my sisters responsibility Nervous Hopefully we'll get to go the park every weekend!!

dogs that walk together, play together. thats my motto! lucy has socialisation issues big style but by walking with her new chums she gradually came round to the idea that meeting other dogs means good fun is on the horizon

Ya sorta the same with Junior. I mean he isn't aggressive with other dogs...at least I don't think, it just seems he doesn't know how to initiate a meeting with one. But after the first couple minutes hes fine. The only other problem would be if another dog is barking and being aggressive...sometimes he'll ignore them but mostly he's just mean back....ah my weird pooch Nervous
