#10 – Socialisation
I once mets a monster and barked and barkeds at it – it was a funny long things with a big, big head and didn’t look likes anything I’d ever seen before. Then the monster tooks off its head and I realised that it was only a person in a long coat and hat – boy was I embarrasseds! Us doggies aren’t goods at realising that new stuffs isn’t scary if we’ve never met it befores. Or even if we’ve mets it before but it looks differents now.
Doggies are born thinking everything is fun and lovelies, but if we don’t meets lots and lots of new stuff when we’re pupsters, we can gets to thinking everything is scary and bad and runs away or barks at it all days.
So takes us lots of new places and lets us see and experience lots and lots of new things when you gets us first. I can’t quite remember, cause that was a bad times, but I thinks I was born in a shed or something and never gots to be in a house.
When I first cames here I was just a pupster and I was scared of lots of things. But my human was really goods at making sure I gots to go lots of places and see lots of new peoples and doggies and now I’m scared of hardly anythings.
