Re: I want photos of puppies being socialized.....

I didn't get pictures of this but we were up north this last weekend (13 of us in all so lots of attention there for the puppy) and some of us went to a local firework display at the harbor. I knew kessler and Ellie weren't bothered by fireworks and Koda didn't care either. He was happy to get attention from people passing by and looked up to watch some of the fireworks but the noise didn't bother him at all.

Re: I want photos of puppies being socialized.....

Non-GSD - here's Flirt, my Gordon Setter, 18 weeks old at Lake Michigan in Racine, WI. We started the day at an agility trial with Kayto in Milwaukee where, in addition to walking around and meeting people and dogs and watching the trial, she was crated next to the parking lot in a park. Then to Racine for a walk around the harbor, meeting a wide variety of people and a teeny Shih Tzu. Walked across some narrow wooden piers right on the water. Then we stopped for a drink at an outdoor dog-friendly bar on the lake. Finally a quick dip in the lake for the girls before heading home. I was thrilled with Flirt's reaction when a car, dragging a string of beer cans, drove right by us . She wasn't the slight bit rattled and instead thought it was really cool and wanted to chase it. I wish I had brought the camera, but only got a few shots with the cell phone.

agilegsds, ANY breed is welcome! All to get us to think 'out of the box' on where we can bring our dogs, or things we can do to challenge them!

Re: I want photos of puppies being socialized.....

We try to take Chevy wherever dogs are allowed. He loves to go to car shows, walks, the stores, etc. I'm hoping Shya will be the same way! Here are a few photos from one of our more recent adventures with Chevy:
At the end of June, the Animal Planet Expo came to my city. I took my daughter and Chevy up there, the rest of the family had other plans and Shya stayed home since she was still very young and I didn't want to take any chances. It was a lot of fun, lots of demos, frisbee dog show, games and activites for kids, etc. We saw only one other German Shepherd there! Chevy got lots of attention from everyone which he loved. There was one unruly child who kept running up and practically jumping on him while the parent just stood there
. And one parent who told their child they couldn't pet Chevy "Because that is a German Shepherd and they bite!" But otherwise it was great. So here are a few photos...it was hard handling the leash and taking pics!

The Expo entrance:


My daughter went in the moonwalk and Chevy was sure to keep his eye on her the entire time:

Lots of noise coming from these strange tools Dad is using and Flash isn't scared at all!

Re: I want photos of puppies being socialized.....

What a fun topic!
Love all these pictures and ideas for outings!

I've had my puppy Charlie for just over a month now, and we're having a great time doing new things with him.

Some of the fun things we've done, on top of our normal walks and training:

His first hike - in the Petroglyph National Monument here in Albuquerque (we were with some friends that day):



(We were very impressed at how well he handled all the different surfaces - we hiked down to the bottom of the canyon here - he did great! We love to hike and go camping and it is so fun to take Charlie along with us - we're really lucky to have lots of great trails nearby where dogs are allowed on-leash.)

Obedient and attentive at a Sheep and Wool Festival:



(We'd had him for just over a week here, and this was his first big "lots of people outing;" what you can't see is that around us here were about 50 people, and we were a few yards away from all the booths at the festival, which allowed dogs... and within eyesight of pens of sheep and llamas!! I was, honestly, shocked that he was able to stay calm and listen to me. This festival is also where I discovered that he has a "thing" for kids - he really seems to like them!)

Riding in a car (a good skill to have, yes?):



My fiance Jacob giving him his first bath:



...three guesses who got more wet by the end...

And, a regular evening view, me and my pup, in shadow:



Just like the song says:

Not a soul can bust this team in two...
We stick together like glue.
