How to continue to socialize when older (7 months+)
My pup is currently 7 months so is getting to be pretty big. Yesterday, we took her to Petco to walk around a little and I realized that while some people really took a liking to her (mostly the staff), there were also people who were a little scared to be around her.
Any suggestions to get her out there more? We will take her downtown to walk around and see things, but people almost never will come up and pet her.
Also, it doesn't help, but while she is fine with adults, she barks at kids/teens. I can't quite understand this since there are many occasions that she will go up to them and play...other times, she will just stand off at a distance and bark at them (similar to how she might bark at the vacuum cleaner when it's on and moving).
