Socializing... What did you all do?

I have a new addition to our family. Taz, is our 4 month old pit puppy. He is a little ball of energy and a social butterfly. So far he has enjoyed all the puppy classes and learned alot! He now knows sit, down, give paw, say please, stay, wait, come, drop it and kennel =D Extremely smart and off to a great start. I also have a female bully Sara who is 3 1/2 & going for her canine good citizenship in the following months; cant wait because she is fantastic!
My question to all of you is how did you go about socializing you doggy do to people, kids & other dogs? Taz loves petsmart, we REFUSR to go to a dog park, we have been to the playgrounds where he can meet kiddos, did the puppy classes, have him signed up for further obidience classes also. Thought about taken him to doggie day care afew times because we have a excellent one in town that has only 3-4 dogs out at a time and very well supervised. But still leary... Running out of ideas! What did you all do with your youngster? Please help!

At 4 months, I think it's ok to take Taz to doggy daycare, since they only have 3-4 dogs out at a time. Make sure you ask them if they accept pit bulls as some places don't. I'd probably pull him out of daycare around 8-9 months though as he's starting to leave puppyhood behind and the "I'm just a puppy and love everyone!" stage.

The only thing I really did with Kane to socialize him was take him EVERYWHERE with me. During the summer, we go to parades and festivals and street concerts, to the doggy ice cream store, etc. I live close to a big college campus, too, so we spend a lot of time walking around the campus and going down the main street where all the stores are located.

We just take them everywhere we go , pet smart, parks, for walks, to the lake , anywhere they are allowed to be we go. We focus more on socializing with people , and new places then other dogs. I dont trust other dogs I dont know I have had vet bills from other "friendly" dogs attacking mine { 3 occassions}. They dont need doggy friends so just focusing more on new people is what we do. Shows are great too even if you arent showing them take them to watch its a new environment and alot going on there, family events are great too mine love kids. Good job on avoiding the dog parks those have so many issues its not even worth it.
