Being pack animals, dogs enjoy social interactions and activities. Some prefer being around other animals, while some choose to interact with humans. If your pet seems to be anxious in the company of other dogs, he won’t be happy being in a dog park or being enrolled in doggy day care. However, if your dog adores people, make sure to ask human members of the pack to spend time with your pooch.
If your dog is left alone during the day, it may be a good idea to add another dog to the household so they can keep each other company. However, make sure that introductions are properly carried out. The initial encounter should be in a place that is neutral because many resident dogs won’t take too well to the presence of an unfamiliar dog in their established territories.
