Hattie was really looking forward to her first puppy party but oh dear not good experience. There were about 10 puppies and once we were all in a fairly small room the vet nurse said to let them all loose! Now I am a fan of Ceaser Millan and one of the things he says about puppy socialisation is NOT to have a free for all. Hattie was overwhelmed by the whole thing and the bigger dogs spent the whole hour chasing the smaller ones. No one was listening to the vet nurse they were all watching the puppies and talking to each other. I did leave before the end as I could not see the point in stressing Hattie further. She went out today and had a lovely play with a springer and terrier in the fields where there was plenty of room. Not sure If I will go next week but may do just to see what the 'dog behaviourist' has to say!
