Socialization with puppies vs. adults
My 4 month old puppy, Willow, didn't have much socialization before we adopted her a little over a week ago. I have two adult GSDS (~3 years) that are teaching her everything she needs to know about being a pup. They play with her, tug with her, and reprimand her when she's out of line. Also, we have her in training so she's getting socialized with some dogs there. The problem is that I don't have any puppies to socialize her with, and all of her socialization has been with adult dogs. I don't know if this is okay or not at her age, or if I should seek out some puppies for her to play with? Does it really make a difference?
