Default Why bother to 'socialize' and I want photos/videos of puppies/dogs.....

Ok, everyone......

I want everyone to go thru their old and new photos AND videos of their puppies, and/or get out the camera. Because I want the talented and wonderful people on this site to post pictures and ideas of the places/things they've done with their pups during the first year to socialize them.

This should be a great way to give all the newbies ideas of what they can also do with their pups. I want that thinking outside of the box, as well as all the other ideas we've come up with. Let's see who's the most creative!

Why we do this? Check out the following sites!

Oooo I got one!

I took my 11 week old GSD to the Salt Lake City Mormon temple grounds!

Check off:
Kids, seniors, police, people of diverse ethnicities, sunglasses and hats!

He even met a 3 month old baby!

At the end of the day he was full of confidence and thinks everyone is in love with him!

No pictures from the first year, but this is at 2 and the new addition of the pack.

In front of my local library, which is within walking distance from my house. Dante the Library. Not only does he get to train and meet new people but they have fountains that he gets to play in during the summer!!

ADDED: Also Jesse goes to the City of Brampton Park where there is a farm with all different kinds of animals there and meets and greets them, as well there is a skate board park we have sociliazed him to, we also socialized him to fireworks. He gets three walks a day, 2 around neighborhood and 3rd goes in vehicle to go somewhere new, been to conservation area, walks in woods, in city parks, on roadways, going camping for 3 weeks this summer in 3 different locations. Also once in a while we tie him out front of the house while we sit out there so he can watch the goings on in the neighborhood. We also take him in vehicle if we are going to pick up food or milk to get him use to sitting in the vehicle without us.

This isn't being socialized in "public" but it is getting a puppy used to different footing. Does that count? (Or maybe I should say a puppy getting HERSELF used to different footing since she does it on her own.)

Oh I found one thing today I never thought of until I was walking Jesse this morning and we came in view of a "two headed monster" Jesse was scared... I called over to the man who had his grandson 1 year old on his shoulders if he could help me get Jesse not to be afraid of him. The man and child were great and took Jesse a few minutes but eventually went up to the man very slowly to take a treat, then the man put the kid down and Jesse was like "wow people stack up" So find somone to put put a child or adult or both on their shoulders....
