I thought I needn't deal with this until James starts puppy preschool, but, as it is, we've crossed paths with several neighbours and their (vaccinated) dogs and I've no idea what the right way is to introduce them - I come away feeling like I've buggered it up each time. The dogs he's met have been absolutely lovely, thank goodness, and put up with his craziness and my ineptitude, but obviously that won't always be the case.
So, how does one best go about introducing a pup to other dogs?
I remember reading something once about not making them sit as it shows subservience? I had him sitting (well, tried to have him sitting ) for the dog he met yesterday as it was the only way to calm him down a little and prevent him from hurling himself into her face. Should I have done differently?
