I think we were asked politely not to come back to

puppy socialization . it is typically for 12-16 weeks, we took Koch at 11 weeks and she is how 14 weeks. It really isn't a structured class, we just let the dogs run around for an hour and play.

Koch is just playing a bit more "older" than all the puppies there, she is the most active in the class where most of the other dogs are pretty shy. She wants to play with everyone and play a bit rougher than the other dogs (mostly their owners) are used too...

Koch has met and played with about 30 other dogs, so she is doing well. I just need to figure out a way to get her around some more dogs to play with.

Re: I think we were asked politely not to come back to

Do you plan on starting obedience classes with her? In my classes there is no socialization just the distraction.What types of dogs are in the puppy class with her?

Last week there was a beautiful sable that was 16 weeks, but it wasn't here this week. she has been the biggest besides the sable. There was a beautiful Golden Retriever that was there today that was the same size, but it wasn't as playful as Koch.

There was a Aussie Shepherd that showed up that Koch chased around and became playful, it was pretty good.

Then they let this little Jack Russel out with the big dogs and Koch was determined to eat it.

I wish there were "larger dog" puppy classes. It is sad how many dogs actually show up at puppy classes considering how many puppies there are.

That might be a good idea, add in some obedience with good distraction.

I agree, I think it's time for your "little girl" to get ready for obedience classes.

Re: I think we were asked politely not to come back to

I thought Athena would be good with other dogs but I found out otherwise in obedience.She still might be ok but since we can't let them mingle I still have no idea.She is vocal with the others but I don't know if it is a mean vocal or a I want to play vocal.I could take her to a play group on Sat but it's like a 1/2 hour drive and $6.00 a week.I need to get together with our friends who have a GSD a month older but I keep being w/o a vehicle.
I would try the obedience as well.

Yeah, vocal is an understatement with Koch. She barks. She barks a lot. She growls. The puppy parents find this intimidating but Koch's tail is wagging so hard it almost knocks her back end over.

But, I can't say I wasn't any different Koch's first week there, but after seeing her being fine I relaxed a bit more with more dominant dogs.

Those strong headed GSD's!

Re: I think we were asked politely not to come back to

The place I go to is puppy training but the last 10 minutes are free play. They are split up in ages and the small breeds are taken to another play room if they or their owners feel intimidated. Ty at 9 months has just finished his third round of classes(Puppy1, puppy2, advanced puppy). Each session has had different pups and breeds, with the last one several large breeds and a few smaller, but they stayed with us. WE learn a bit more obedience but the social aspect is invaluable. When my guy, the more sure of himself dominant type gets pushy,(he doesn't let the others go to their owners), they used squirt bottles, then a squirt gun to redirect him. It has given him an awesome out, and he loves classes. Maybe you can find this type of situation for you.
