Today we had a socialization playdate with Ella and her brother Louis. Ella is a little bit nervous and fearful, so its important for her to socialize with others often. In these videos you can see that she is a bit nervous, but interested, and that’s good. Always allow a nervous or fearful dog to explore things at their own pace. Be sure to mark good and brave behavior with your “Good” or “Yes.” This will help encourage a fearful dog and give them confidence.
Today’s doggy helpers include my pack (Caravaggio, Devo, Ahsoka) and Lola.
