So my 4 month old GSD and I have just graduated puppy school. He had learned all the tricks taught there before he started, so for him it was more about socializing than anything. The first week or two he was hiding under the chair and was quite aggressive toward the other pups and by the 5th week he was rolling and tumbling around playing with them. It was such a delight watching him come out of his shell.
Now my concern is that we have now finished puppy school, but the obedience training club I want to go to does not have its induction until April 14th. I fear it may be quite a long time for him to go without proper socialization (especially considering he still freaks out about bigger dogs) so I was wondering if anyone has any ideas as to activities I may be able to do with him to keep him well socialized until obedience training? Any suggestions or ideas are welcome. I live in the western suburbs of Melbourne.
