Default Puppy socialising - where else can I go?

Trying to introduce Poppy to as many different things/experiences/people/places as possible.

So far we have done:

Homebase
B&Q
Vets
Pets at Home
Local pet store
Halfords
Horses walking down the street
Loads of different folks (old and young) coming to the house
Being carried through towns and villages
Watching busy traffic

We are definitely lacking in meeting other dogs but are off to the puppy party at the vets tomorrow and then puppy classes on Thursday.

Am I missing an obvious one? What else can I do with her in the next week before she can go out properly?

Thank you

childrens playground, a football game, local school, train station , a bus ride, near a supermarket (for trolleys), sit outside a hospital for crutches, wheelchairs, mobility scooters and sirens.

I could go on and on as I live socialisation :lol:

Has she had one jab? If so I would probably pop her on the floor just for a minute or so at each place so she gets to experience it from her level

We took Gillie to dog friendly pubs and restaurants. He got loads of attention and he was able to sit on the floor on my jumper. We also socialised him with ully vaccinated dogs after his first jab so from when we got him at 9 weeks.

lots of good suggestions from sarah.

and if you want any doggie socialisation there are a few of us around MK so when you're ready we can introduce her lots of different dogs... altho most will be labs! :lol:

Well I've just got back from the town centre with Pickle. Today we saw lots of Small People (children), lots of Big People, cars, bikes, motorbility scooter thingies, Pigeons, a childrens roundabout, trampolines, a fountain, men up ladders, people with walking sticks, noisy roadworks, pushchairs, oh and loads of other things. Pickle had a little walk for a couple of mins but she was mostly carried and then we sat on a bench for a while chatting to people who passed by and who wanted to fuss her. Then I carried her back to the car and we came home......She is a tired pup now.

I don't have to worry about socialising with dogs, as I have my own and my sis has loads of all varieties too, plus she has horses, ducks, geese, hens, etc, so a few trips to the farm usually sorts that lot out . .

I'm like Sarah, I do like my pups WELL socialised :wink: :lol: .
