Oh don't get me wrong. You do want to socialize him allot, but maybe give him a break from so many dogs. There is more to socialization then meeting dogs and people. Different areas, different walks, different trees and bushes, even the difference between day and night. He is taking all that in right now.. No you really don't want to Pop him on the nose. Your hand should be good things not bad things. You could let him know your serious in your voice tone without hitting him. If he keeps going on, get him out of there, and introduce him to something else. Take treats and praise him for good behavior.

I cut it short because I was heading out to work. Remember to re-introduce, over and over untill satisfied.

What I mean is go back at a differn't time and try again. Jonas did that at first to my neibors husky, I took him back and introduced several times. Now they are like the best of friends. So if you keep at it after taking a break then coming back, it should work.Unless it just isn't ment to be. I hope this helps you.

I know how that feels! After having a bunch of different dogs, I did think I got a hang on how to deal with situations and then I met my "specials", the dogs that pushed me towards my limits, dogs that made me feel like I had no clue and no concept of taking care of a dog, but in the end, I look back at these fellows and I realized, they brought me further as a person and as a dog owner.

I learned that every day is a new day with new chances to make things like this better and taking a step back and starting the socialization process slower could make the difference. After all he is brand new in the family and in his new home and I feel like he probably doesn't really know yet that you are the no1 trustworthy person in his life.

I always have a reliable trainer at hand - that helps so much. Sometimes we are getting so frustrated and feel so helpless, that an outside person/opinion just gives us that little push we need to move towards the right direction.
