In Parts one and two we’ve talked about the people and the places you should expose your pet to while you are getting it adjusted to it’s new home.  In this section, we’re going to talk about things you should expose your dog to.  Some of them will be common sense, some you might not have thought of on your own.  Here we go:

Things you should expose your dog to:

  • Dog toys
  • Cat toys (if you have a cat)
  • Bicycles (you can most likely do this on your visits to a park, or maybe the children in your neighborhood ride bikes)
  • Buses
  • Different shapes of cars and trucks (easily accomplished when you visit city or suburban streets)
  • Motorcycles
  • Shopping Carts (after your vet gives you the ok for going into a pet store with your pet
  • Roller-blades
  • skateboards
  • Scooters
  • Those motorized shopping carts people use in stores
  • Squirrels

The area you live in will probably have many other things your dog has not seen before.  As you take him for walks, ask your self if he’s seen it and if not, go closer so he can.
