A play date with one dog or a couple of other dogs is best if you are not confident in knowing your dog’s play style yet, or if your dog gets anxious when being around a lot of other dogs at once. Enjoy!

A dog park is a great option if you’re confident in knowing your dog’ s play style, and if they have socialized in the past and you’re able to assess any potential issues that could arise at a dog park. Overall, a dog park can be a great way for a hyper dog to get out a lot of energy while also interacting with other dogs and other people. If you have a smaller dog, and are worried about going to a dog park where there are larger dogs, research the dog parks in your area; some areas are commonly designated for smaller dogs. Enjoy!
Outside Cafe

If your dog is new to socializing, or is shy and doesn’t like to socialize that much, this could be the perfect opportunity to get your dog around other people, and maybe other dogs! This kind of environment will help your dog get acclimated to being around a lot of stimuli. If your dog hasn’t been socialized in the past, plan for a quick trip, a cup of coffee, for example, then build up from there. Enjoy!
