So that happened.
Now, not everyone at a doggie daycare is polite 100% of the time… I wanted Wade to learn that, and instead I learned that my pup might have some social issues right out of the gate.
Impossible. He’s a puppy. He was raised with his litter. There’s no way he’s got social issues already.
But unfortunately, it’s true.
I only say this because I can fix this.
I don’t mean I’m some crazy expert in behavioral issues. This is just something we have to work with, and FAST.
And by social issues, I mean exactly that. Wade can be very rude when greeting other dogs. He can also play too rough and over-step his boundaries.
This all could very well just be normal puppy behavior. Solved by more interactions with dogs.
We will see.
So, expect to be seeing quite a bit of posts regarding how to overcome social problems in dogs.
The solution is NOT to avoid other dogs.
