I know what you mean. When we were camping I would pick her up if we walked by other dogs if I could not tell if they were tied up. Most of the time she would go nuts and I would about drop her. She turned into the barking, wiggling, white ball of fur (well sometimes white, we were camping). People watching us people thought it was funny. I did the first dozen times but by the end of the weekend it was getting pretty old.But it is pretty embarrasing to have this tiny dog going nuts at every passerby.[/B]
I totally hear you on that point.. Tuffy is in a training class with a Doberman and a Boxer and those dogs are huge even though they are still puppies. I got pretty upset at the last class when the Doberman took a swipe at Tuffy and knocked him over... everyone just laughed, but I wasn't funny to meOriginally posted by Brittany Lot@Jul 27 2004, 06:48 PM
I know it is important to take them to Puppy Kindergarten classes to socialize them but I feel so nervous about that. The class offered in my area is for puppies that are 4 months old and younger....but a 4 month old rottweiler (sp?) is a lot bigger than my three month old maltese. I'm just nervous because Zoe is so little and fragile and other bigger puppies would not know to be careful with her. Am I being overprotective?
