As long as the pup is not showing overt signs of submission - such as urination, ears back constantly, tail between legs, pitiful whining, eyes out of focus, etc - the pup is likely just playing
I want to socialize her and take her around but Im also seeing advice around that says not to socialize the dogs so much to keep them focused on me (her handler).
