Socializing And Exercising Our Aussie Pup
by Andi Chuckry
(St. Catharine, Ontario)
Our puppy Stella, is full of energy. She is now 10 weeks old and doesn't finish her immunizations for another 6 weeks. She was raised the first 8 weeks on a farm and had very little integration with humans. She is very shy around new people (not around my family then she is our Tazmainian devil) We feel we really need to socialize her soon but are not supposed to expose her to other dogs until shots are complete, what can we do? Also we try to take her on one good walk a day (weather permitting as she hates the rain) for at least an hour. Is that long enough? We could walk for way longer but worry we are over exercising her. What is the norm? Thanks so much for your tips. Andi and Stella puppy.
