In this video, I'll talk about how to socialize your dog with other dogs. And the pitfalls that some people experience when they rush this process.
We’ve built parks specifically to facilitate dog play. There is a booming industry in Doggie Daycares and Cagefree Boarding facilities. I can’t walk down the street with my dogs anymore without having to address other people wanting their dogs to play with mine. Half the time, the human is so convinced that my dogs will be their dog’s next play thing, that the approaching dog is offleash and has no semblance of a recall. More and more, I’m met with dirty looks or snotty comments when I try to politely decline the interaction.
If we applied these same standards to humans, we would be expected to enthusiastically greet every person who ever crossed our paths. We would be in a constant state of higharousal from being in a social gathering all day long. Imagine being thrown into a party where you don’t know anyone, but you’re expected to run and enjoy the scene — sometimes every day. Would you be happy if you had to hug or even shake hands with every stranger you come across? What happens if or when you DON’T want to say hi, play or interact? Are you afforded the luxury of saying, ‘no thank you, not today?’
