No not an exaggeration. He literally met hundreds of people. We had a checklist of situations and types of people to meet and we did just about all of them. I also read about a 200 person before they turn six months and we did that also. But he lives exclusively with me and for the past few months the socialization is a minimum (passerbys on walks and such) It's supported by literature (at least what I read lol) that meeting that many people positively leads to a well balanced dog.
With that being said, do you think meeting that many people is/was overboard. What can I do now to counter that ?
