Have I created a monster??????
Have I created a monster??? I wanted to make a real effort to socialize Enzo,5 months old now.I took him to puppy class,and take him to see as many new people,dogs,and new situations as possible since I've had him(8 weeks old)....Eventually,I would hope to walk him down the street and have him ignore other dogs....I have noted that he isgetting to the point where,if not allowed to meet other dogs,right away,he starts gettinghis hackles up and a little nasty even towards dogs he knows...until he gets his way. When he is allowed to meet other dogs ,he is relatively well behaved but likes to play rough.This has stopped me from letting him have any slack,with small dogs,which frustrates him,making it an ongoing battle to avert his attention back to me.Have I dropped the ball somewhere,will he grow out of this,will he ever get tired of meeting EVERY DOG HE PASSES BY!!!???? Any opinions on what I need to do next would be very helpful... Thanks Jay
