My boyfriend and I just got two Terrier Shih Tzu mixed puppies this past weekend for Valentine's Day and my birthday. These two seem to have a lot of terrier in them. While I am used to high energy dogs, I do have some "terrier" specific questions to see if anyone else can relate!
These two seem to have small man syndrome. We introduced the pups to my sister's 80 pound VERY GENTLE older dog and the two puppies started barking excessively. At one point, they got the old dog cornered and he just laid down. Does anyone know what we should do to introduce the puppies to larger dogs? It is important to us that we get them socialized as much as possible. What should we do when they are barking at other dogs like this?
We do plan to start puppy Kindergarten soon and after they receive their final booster vaccines next week, we'll be introducing them into doggy daycare.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
