When we first brought Kody home, he was very skittish towards strangers, and usually growled at them. This was cause for some concern. We decided to take him to the dog park to begin to socialize him with other dogs (and with people), and he had an absolute blast! The growling at strangers has stopped, and he’s a much more friendly and interested dog now, rather than stand-offish and skittish.
Even the spaz-dog is exhausted after that outing
