And again... what is crazy socialized??
Loud noises, strange flooring, a little adversity... how is that "crazy"??
Exactly, that's what I'm wondering. I've explained what I've been doing with the pups...which is nothing MAJOR in my life...it's not like I've set up an obstacle course for them or something. I've invited people over to visit...I've taken them on a trip to see my sister and her kids (which was already planned before the pups arrived...and it wasn't like I could leave them for hours at home alone). I don't think what I've been doing is "CRAZY SOCIALIZED". What I have done is added some new things every day into their environment, allowed them a little more freedom, and noted what their reactions were...and tried to keep everything positive and happy for them. They've met rabbits, cats and older dogs...because that's what lives in my house.
