German Shorthaired Pointer Q&A
I am soon getting a mini schnauzer and Ive read about them not liking strangers or other dogs.. I had a terrier mix for 16yrs who loved everyone.. what can you do to prevent them from not liking strangers as a young pup?
I am not a trainer, but have a 11 month old mini myself. We started taking her to local dog parks at about 6 month of age and we take her about once a week now. She has been great with other people and dogs this way! Also while on our walks I ask people we see if they mind if she says "hello". I think that gets her used to the fact that most people are friendly - not a threat. Same with dogs on our walks, always asking first, if she can say "hi".
