Your dog’s social life is incredibly important for their development. When cooped up in the house with no socialization with other dogs, they may become uneasy around other dogs when introduced. It’s vital to start with some playdates early on, so they get accustomed to being around others.
Incorporating playdates in your dog’s life will help them develop good behavior skills around other dogs and even humans. They’ll get used to being around other dogs and people, so when you’re walking down the street, there will be a friendly behavior around neighbors and their dogs.
The trick is to have regular playdates, rather than once in a while. This will allow them to get used to the socialization. If you’re only taking them here and there, they’ll feel stressed and anxious with other dogs. They’ll never get used to the idea. This will hinder their time to have fun.
Your Dog Deserves it
Having a dog is amazing because they get to know you and you get to know them. They are by your side in your home, so they’re always looking up to you for care and food. They deserve to get out, walk, exercise, and have playdates with other dogs. They can get anxious and cooped up living in a home, so getting them out to explore and meet others is important for their behavior and health.
Everyone knows exercise is important to a healthy life. Walking and getting out of your home is good for your mental health as well. Dogs need exercise because they can build up so much energy in the house. If you don’t allow them to release their energy outside at a park or on a playdate, it will reflect their behavior in the home. It also tires them out, so when you’re both relaxing after dinner on the couch, they won’t be bugging you to play tug of war.
