I think a lot of people who own this breed(the newer people) are afraid to even walk their dog in public,cause of the misconception this breed holds. Let alone socialize it.
I admit, I was scared of my dog meeting new people. Souly on the fact that I have a little pain in the ass dog, who hates everything. I am still working on not feeling so tense when Bruno goes up to someone (mostly the elderly and children.)
I want him to meet all kinds of people,but don;t want him to feel me getting tense, cause it sends the wrong message.
I need to relax haha~ he really has no problem with anyone so far.
