Along the same lines as my other thread....When you have a reactive puppy, how do you keep up socialization & other dog interaction??
I want Jazmyn to be able to play with other dogs, but my fear is that the bigger she gets, the harder it will be to teach her to play nicely with other dogs
She has had essentially a few days of "puppy playtime" at puppy kindergarten, 1 hour of "puppy social" with about 10 other dogs and did interact with our friends 2 small dogs at their house, but they're very tiny compared to her (3-6 pounds) so she can't really "play". She barks at them, but also plays fairly well once shes comfortable.
We don't have any adult dogs, that I would consider stable enough to not react if she were to really bark at them. My sister lab mix (7-8 months) is highly excitable and rough plays, our neighbours GSD (7-8 months) they don't trust around puppies/smaller dogs, and we don't know any other people that have large breed adult dogs.
I do have 1 friend that has an 1 year old male adult GSD that we're going to try and let Jazmyn meet on Saturday. She knows about Jazmyn's barking, advised that Dudley ignores barking dogs, and that she'd wait it out with us for her to calm down.
We're in classes, and we are going to another puppy social on March 18th but I'm not sure this is enough.
