The Importance of Dogs Interactions

Imagine what would happen to you if you spent all day cooped up inside of your house with almost no interaction with the outside world. It probably wouldn’t be long before you started driving yourself crazy! You might even turn into a mean and nasty person due to lack of interaction.

Well, guess what? The same thing can happen to your dog, and unfortunately, it does happen to many dogs through no fault of their own. For a variety of different reasons, there are some dog owners who prevent their dogs from interacting with other dogs. As a result, these dogs grow up to be fearful of other dogs, and when they are put in situations where they are forced to interact with them, they often react aggressively. This isn’t because they are mean or want to be angry towards other dogs. Rather, it’s because they don’t necessarily know how to play nice and get along with dogs.

For this reason, it’s important for dog owners to encourage their dogs to socialize with others. There’s actually a short window of time when dogs are between three and four months old when they learn how to interact with other dogs, so you should encourage your dog to play with other dogs during that time. Moreover, even if you miss that window, it’s never too late to allow your puppy to play with others. When your dog has positive experiences with other dogs, it will be very beneficial and teach your dog that it doesn’t have anything to worry about when another dog is in the area.

Do you want to expose your dog to other dogs and allow him or her to socialize more? Tailwaggers Country Inn can make this possible for you. We offer excellent boarding and daycare services for all types of dogs and will work with your dog so that it feels comfortable at all times when it’s in our care. Call us at 877-774-DOGS today to find out more about why we consider ourselves “Your Pet’s Vacation Destination.”
