Right now, you still have some socialization time with your puppy and you should take advantage of it as much as possible. But in the future, if he has trouble coping with other dogs, you can come back to this video for help. Clicker Training 'Look at That' LAT Game -teaching dogs to focus and eye contact - YouTube
Thank you. I am making sure he socialises with my friends whippet who is very calm and good with him for the moment. I was thinking of walking him out, how is the best way to handle it if he meets another dog on the street. I had planned all of this an puppy classes but due to his illness my hands have been tied. Very frustrating for me
