i was wondering....
do you let your pups play with adult dogs of any breed?
i want Keeroff to become a very socialized dog, but im always worried that an adult dog might hurt him during playing.
Keeroff loves all the dogs we meet outside and pulls the leash like crazy to approach them, but some of them doesnt like him!
for example, a week ago we met a bullmastiff-pit bull mix(HUGE male dog) who wasnt shaking his tail to Keeroff.
they were sniffing each other until Keeroff put his paw on the other dog's face. so the other dog got mad and growled at him! i was scared to death.... and we just took off.
yesterday, we met a male 5 year old bulldog. the bulldog was off leash and i kept Keeroff on the leash. they sniffed each other and Keeroff tried to get on the bulldogs face at once!!! the bulldog was not shaking his tail, and he didnt like Keeroff. he was playing with wood pieces so, i didnt let Keeroff off leash in case the bulldog thought that my baby would try to steal the pieces of wood he had in mouth. later, they were sniffing each other for a second and when Keeroff made a move towards him, he growled at Keeroff!!!!
grrrrrrrr!!!! why do they growl at a baby???????????
do you let your puppies play with adult dogs off leash?
do you have any bad experiences?
