Have you just added a new member to your family? If you have just brought a dog and you are not sure how to make your pet socialize with other dogs, you need to take some proactive steps. You can take your dog to a dog park where other dogs also come for their regular walks. This is the perfect place where canines can interact with each other. Many times, it is seen that dogs interact with some of the dogs and avoid others completely.
If you want your dog to be friendly, it is important that you instill certain socializing skills in them. Interacting with other people or dogs will help them to become extrovert and they will be able to handle anxious, frightening and negative situations. The dogs must learn how to cope with difficult situations.
Following tips can help in socializing your dog-
1. Take your dog to different parks where other canines also come with their owners. Use Frisbee or a ball to make your dog play and have a good time. Gradually, other dogs will also join in and you will be amazed to see that your pet is not averse to the idea. Besides parks and gardens, also take them to other public places like a train station, a bus stand or a mall where dogs are allowed.
2 .Encourage your dog to indulge in a lot of physical activities like scrambling across logs and rocks. This will help them to experience a variety of surfaces. Slowly and gradually, they will gain confidence. This confidence building exercise will also help them to open up and socialize with others.
3.Take your dog to your friend’s place on a regular basis. This will help them to become accustomed to different people around them. If your dog reacts strongly to the presence of strangers, it is very important that you take your dog to different places and make them meet different people. This will surely remove their hesitation and gradually they will start mixing with other people.
4.Dogs must also be familiarized with other animals. There are many households where dogs as well as cats or other animals are kept as pets. It is important that your dog is exposed to other domestic species. This way, it will not feel insecure. Rather, they will enjoy the company of other animals.
5.If your dog is inordinately shy, you need to work very hard. Initially, just ignore your dog when your dog is not reacting when some other person comes to your home. Gradually, your dog will start feeling neglected and try various ways to grab attention. This method will help him to come out of his shell.
Above tips can help your dog become a social animal”.
