Delgado is a very social dog, he LOVES to play with other dogs. He's the type of dog that would be very lonely as an only dog so I would say yes that playdates are important to him. I can satisfy his needs pretty well and he's content but the excitement when we pull up to my parents or one of his friends walks through the door is just fun to watch. I'd miss seeing that spark for sure. He doesn't even greet my parents, he just runs for the side door which leads to the dog run and waits for Samson their labradoodle to join him lol

Jazzy on the other hand couldn't care less if she never saw another dog for the rest of her life. She prefers human company

Delgado obviously wouldn't die of heartbreak if all his playdates ceased but he would be very sad, that's for sure. His playdates are with family or friend's dogs so I know and trust them all
