I’m a first time dog owner. Got my little 4 month old pup from the animal pound. This tiny pup has turned into Godzilla in 4 months. We thought we had it all covered (taught her to sit and fetch) but it turns out that she needs some obedience classes. She’s a gentle giant and does not attack/nip/bite at all. She just gets very excited when she sees people and/or dogs. She tries to run to them (I don’t let her) and if they come to her she will lie down with all 4 legs in the air but if they start to leave she will jump on them. With dogs she is more meek and will back off if they bark or growl. She got along well with my friend’s dog right from the start.
While we’re waiting for her to start her obedience classes, I would love for her to socialise with other dogs. Should I wait for her to complete her classes? Or, since she isn’t dangerous, should I take her to a dog park? Would other dog owners be uncomfortable with a dog who doesn’t know her boundaries?
