I was wondering if there is anyone in the Bloor West Village area that has friendly dogs that I can socialise my 11-week-old puppy with and have some play time. Bentley is now 8lbs and just loves other dogs. We go for walks (he has had his jabs and the vet says he is safe to meet friends) but the dogs we meet in the park usually just sniff him a bit and wonder off. He is always on the leash, so I guess they get bored. Bentley LOVES other dogs, he goes crazy when they are near, he cries with excitement, it is really cute.
I was thinking of asking the vet if there were any other puppies that go to her and maybe I could contact them for some playtime. I am going to try and find a puppy kindergarten group; does any one know of any in the west end?
On another note, I want to say thank you to all the senior members for all your great advice, there have many times I have thought that I am doing everything wrong and then I read your comments and realise that my little guy it just a normal puppy :) and I am as normal an owner as possible. So thank you.

Sounds like ur describing my puppy! I have to ask the vet if she is ready since we have to get her 12 wk shots next week. I'm definitely interested, she needs to socialize with pups her age, the older ones just snub her since she's sooooo full of energy.

As soon as you get the okay from the vet, let me know and we can arrange something for sure.

Sure, here's my email firstname.lastname@example.org. I live in Etobicoke so it's not far from u and I'm familiar with that place, I just moved from there last August.

Kimbilly - sooooo cute! Love the markings
Anyone in / around Port Coquitlam BC that wants to let pups play? She's almost 6 months and loves to chase, be chased, wrestle and generally romp around... but sadly I have no friends with dogs and she's too young & curious to be let off leash at the doggy parks. Whenever she sees other dogs playing she'll pull like crazy, then sit, watch and do the saddest whimper in the world!
