Puppy play with my other dogs
 
I'm torn on how much personal attention I should be paying attention to my pup and how much exercise he gets from my other dogs. I have a Boston and an Italian Greyhound that play with the pup who is 10 wks. On top of that we have about 10 or 15 min training sessions we do in the afternoons. He has picked up sit, lay down, and come very quickly with the clicker. I am also getting him familiar with the leash. When we play, it's mostly supervised play time with other dogs. Should I be focusing more on individual play time or is this enough exercise for now till he gets older? Thanks. KC

I know mental training does take a toll on young pups. And he does seam like he would get a good work out playing with the other dogs. Maybe do something else like bonding you can try brush him ect. My boy gets mental, training, and play. If my boy get worn out with the kids, I bond by brushing him at night.:D

I limit the time a new pup spends with the older dogs. His center of the world should be me. I have always given them play time with the others but only a few times a day. You have to take him on socialization outings, puppy class by himself so he develops a bond with you and can develop his confidence without having to rely on the other dogs. If I am working with a new pup, the older dogs are crated and cannot interfere.
You have to be careful with the IG when your pup is getting stronger. I am talking from experience.
