Your little one sounds just like my Mal! She used to want to greet every single person/dog we saw during walks. She is still very people and dog-friendly, but now understands that we don't need to say "hi" to everyone
For socialization, as a puppy, we only allowed her to interact with dog-neutral dogs on purpose. We didn't want her to think of other dogs as playmates. It depends on what your goal is, we wanted her to become more or less dog-neutral as an adult.
We dabbled in agility for a little bit, mainly for her exposure. Mondioring takes a lot of commitment, but if you can find the time to do it, it is a lot of fun. My club member wasn't kidding when he said Mondioring is not a dog sport, it is a lifestyle, LOL.
Mondioring is a protection sport, but that's different from personal protection training. Find a good club and they can guide you in the right direction base on your puppy's temperament and drives.
I can not thank you enough for all of this information! I am looking them up right now.
Oh goodness, that is one of my baby's set backs! We will be on a walk and he will run straight into a tree because he will be busy looking behind him at a person he wants to say hi to
Little brat haha.
I want him to be more dog neutral but it can be hard. My other dog is very "neutral" with him but he just runs underneath her and bites her ankles trying to get her to play haha. Slowly but surely we are working on it!!!! Haha
