    Default How much socialization does your bully get?

    Norman goes to daycare once a week. He'll also go on play dates every Sat. The rest of the days he'll be at home while the both of us are at work. We have friends over once in awhile so there's that too.

    We kind of feel bad whenever we leave Norms at home by himself for long periods of time. We usually come back for lunch for a bit to let him out. Another bully/dog buddy is not feasible now and taking him to daycare more often is costly.

    Every day. Can't go for a walk here without running into other dogs so they're always socializing.

    Wow. I feel like a bad parent, lol Haha. Tyson gets socialization with our family & friends' pets pretty much every weekend, and then who ever we encounter on our walks everyday - other that that - he is home alone, snoozing while we are both at work. He literally just sleeps all day long. Now, he is much older, so that could differ with a younger bully. I always say I feel bad leaving him alone too, but the fact is - if we are there, he'll sleep too, just next to us instead. Sounds like Norman is a popular pup!

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Belle LOVES other people and dogs so she goes somewhere almost every day. On the weekends we take her to our local kid/dog park and during the week she goes with my husband to take the kids to school. My husband is out of work for 9 months recovering from knee surgery, so she's almost never alone. She's young so I'm making sure she gets a ton of socialization.

    Ace has Spidey our pomeranian to entertain himself. We try to do weekly visits to pet stores to get him out. I walk him daily around the neighborhood, but there are not too many people around. Considering he doesn't get too much socialization with other people besides my family and I, it surprises me that he will wag his whole body to any stranger and go with them. Sometimes I think he's too timid, lol.

    Since it's winter and has been about 5 degrees here, we have not taken Jovi for walks... however we have people over every week and she LOVES them. As for dogs she probably sees another dog (during this winter) about once a month to play with. We have dogs next door behind the fence they they usually run across the fend with eachother. We have puppy play dates sometimes... It's just really hard with this weather, but once it gets nicer she is ALWAYS hanging out with other dogs. Being that we have a fenced back yard and tons of friends with dogs they all bring them over for dog parties lol

    In the beginning we took frank everywhere we safely could, plus did a puppy class. I wanted to introduce him to people of all shapes, sizes, races, genders, everything! We work opposite schedules so someone is almost always home with him, but my boyfriend is working on his masters and is doing homework often so we do take him to daycare 2-3x a week. Other than that he gets walks daily. I've not been back to the dog park in a while, too many unpredictable dogs/owners there.

    It's a pipe dream of mine to have him certified as a therapy dog one day so we can visit old folks homes. Not sure if it will ever happen but it's a goal to work toward

    We take Remy out as much as possible. If i could, i would take her everwhere w me!
    We do daily walks around the neighborhood and somewhere new every other day. She goes to petsmart or petco often, usually once a week. We'll also have friends and family over or we would go over to their house. So she's usually out and about doing something.

    Brutus and Frankie have each other to play with plus two lab sisters. We also have friends with dogs so we take them for play dates. We also go to petco and bulldog events so they get lots of socialization. we tend to take Frankie more than Brutus because Brutus can only take so much and then he turns into a pain because he wants to go home.
