Dog Meeting other Dogs - Buffy's Tips

Meeting other Dogs - Buffy's Dog Tips
Woof! Hello guys! So you all already know I don’t have a good track record for making a good first impression when meeting other dogs or humans. But I know what not to do so I might still be helpful.

Here’s what I know…

Dog meeting other dogs

1. When seeing another doggie for the first time, don’t chase or try to play with them immediately. That's a big mistake, you guys.

You need to be polite and sniff a bum! It’s how doggies say “Hello”. We can also determine the other dog’s age, if they're male or female and if the dog is healthy. Just by sniffing! 

The order you sniff each other is also important. If you and the other dog sniff at the same time, you are equals. 

On the other hand, if you sniff first or the other dog sniffs first, then the first sniffer will be the dominant one. So be fast and dominate!

  1. Biting the other dog is a big No No! That’s just rude! Smell them, then maybe initiate a friendly game of chase or wrestle. Remember No teeth!
  1. Be well groomed and clean. This is more for the other dog’s human. They won’t let their dog play with a dirty dog. I know, I know, it’s not ideal. I also prefer to be dirty, but the humans are in charge. So let your human wash you.
  1. Share your stuff. It’s not nice to share things, but if you want to make friends you will need to learn to share toys and treats.
  1. Be social. Don’t hide behind your human. Go make some doggy friends. They speak your language and you can learn a thing or two from them. Hopefully, you were not the last bum sniffer…Haha! Then you’re on your own.

Oh, I almost forgot you guys. We have a new member in our family. Mommy got her yesterday as a surprise. Now there's two of us!

Humans, please don't give puppies or kittens as gifts, not everyone can handle the responsibility. Yep! Mommy is clueless. She knows nothing about puppies and introducing a new dog to the pack.

She did want a puppy and thought she'll only get one next year. She's clueless but really happy about it. Just look at the fluffball! Already stealing hearts.

I did the bum sniffing thing and I'm starting to get used to Fluffy. Mommy washed both of us. It was no fun. Grrrr!

She also used my old towel for the thing...I mean puppy. Ok fine! I'll admit I have some puppy issues to work through.
