Gus is not really fond of other dogs. He likes his space and he does NOT share. We’re working on it by going for walks with friends. Sasha is one of our ‘friends’, he’s just 2yrs old so he likes to play! Gus does not, but they both like walks.
We start out our walks on opposite sides of the street and slowly come across, sometimes Sasha sneaks in a bum sniff when Gus isn’t paying attention and sometimes they voluntarily come face to face for a sniff, which is HUGE for Gus as he hates dogs in his face.
Usually by the middle of the walk they are walking beside each other happy doing their own thing.
