When it comes to socializing your puppy, it’s important to introduce your pup to humans and dogs alike. Whether it’s mental stimulation or physical exercise, puppy playdates can be a great way to help socialize your fur babies.
So what do you get when you put an 8-week-old Corgi and a 12-week-old Basset Hound in a room together? Only one of the cutest puppy playdates you’ll ever see! After all, everyone knows there aren’t many things cuter than puppies – but when they play together its cuteness overload!
The Perfect Puppy Date
As you begin to socialize your puppy you’ll notice that they will likely have certain places or things that bring them comfort. The same goes for first-time puppy playdates! Unlike humans, dogs typically don’t get to choose who they want to spend their time with, so when the time comes to interact with other dogs, they’ll need to get comfortable first.
Take this adorable Corgi and Basset Hound for example. Their first playdate together went from timid to a full-on playful frenzy. The two didn’t take long to get comfortable with each other. With a few gentle nose kisses and playful bites, the adorable duo was happily frolicking around together.
With all this adorable puppy playfulness – how could you possibly resist planning a puppy date for your own fur baby? After all, from seven weeks to four months of age, how you socialize your puppy is essential for shaping their future personality and temperament. (1)
