Brampton-Need Puppy Play Date

I am looking for a puppy play date.

I want owners that are willing to allow them to play and give them time to relax around eachother and slowly introduce them.

I have been wanting to socialize my pup in most ways possible, but I have yet to involve him with other animals.

I try to introduce him to other dogs: neighbours/on walks/pet store. He probably has the crazy common reactions but I want the extra step where he can play with other pups his age or dogs that are not agressive.

If anyone is interested, please get back to me ASAP. I am only looking for an hour or so a couple times a week on neutral grounds.

Also MOST IMPORTANT, MUST be current on all vaccinations as mine is.

Thank you.

PS
I believe it is lack of experience with other dogs although I am no expert. He barks and barks and depending on the other animals reaction, he will get scared and come behind me (only happened once) or continue barking non-stop and at that point I take him away. So I havent gotten him with another animal off leash only because he is not on command and I dont know what he will do.

How old is your puppy?

Have you looked for a training center that offers puppy pre-school or a class that incorporates training and socialization?

My friends and I who have young GSD's (ranging from 8 months to 3 years) all get together and go hiking or swimming. We go all over the GTA, your more than welcome to join us one time.

I will let you know when we will be in your area (probably not until the nicer weather is here).

No problem.

We also have a sorta informal training group with a bunch of people. We concentrate on schH style obedience and tracking (a few of us belong to a club) with the guidance of others. We train in KW though, so it's a little bit of a drive for you but your more than welcome to come out and watch or participate. Our guidance comes from those who have actually titled dogs (many!) and who have worked in the sport world (schH, obedience, etc.) so tones of knowledgeable people to pick their brains...lol.

Just PM me if your interested and I will send you the information.

Simba is a bit... uhm... hyper when he plays, he likes to nibble. I'll let you know when he gets his second set of shots and we can maybe set something up?
