Big Dog, Little Dog

Playing with friendly adult dogs is an essential part of the socialization process.  This interaction allows puppies to learn appropriate social skills and without puppies may grown into adult dogs who are fearful, aggressive or akward with other canines.  We are lucky enough that Weasley has four canine siblings to socialize with.  While they were a bit leery of  him at first they have becoming more and more comfortable and lately they have been playing together.  Norbert in particular has been great about telling Weasley with a paw and a grumble when his play is getting too rough.   









 Next Sunday Weasley will start puppy pre-school at Its Your Dog in Sussex County and the socialization to non-family member canines will begin!

  4. What great pictures. Thanks so much for sharing the socialization routines at your house.

    Dropping by on the blog hop today. I've featured an oldie but goodie video of how dogs help our military out. Stop by www.pet-peeves.org to see the video and thank a veteran this Memorial Day.

    Enjoy the extra time with your fur-kids

    Love the photos of your puppy play!

  15. Weasley's cuteness factor is way off the charts! And he's even got a tiny ringer tee,too (it looks just like the "confidence shirts" that I wear). Norbert looks like a very kind and patient older brother. Can't wait to meet Weasley in the fur sometime soon!

    -Love,
    Sid.
