Someone asked me on our walk yesterday if any of the reactive dogs have seen an improvement.
I couldn't quite answer this question as this was Edison's first walk. He did awesome and rocked his new vest (more on it later this week!).
I couldn't speak for the other dog owners as to whether they've seen an improvement. I know Wynston's person has been impressed with his behavior on the walks, but it's still too early to tell whether it has made an improvement.
What we do know if that socializing any dog on a regular basis is good for them. Since taking Ed to Mud Puppies, we have seen a HUGE improvement. I can only imagine what socializing in a walking group will do for him.
How do you socialize your pooch? What works for you?
