Oh yeah! The yogurt! Here's Mazie eating her yogurt and 'steel cut' oats this morning! My hubby always makes a half cup extra for her in the morning.PascalKrypt said:Take your pup to a puppy class at a dog school. Seriously, this is the easiest way to socialise your dog (and if it is a good school, you get some pro tips as well).
If you can't do this, make a point of taking your puppy to a public park or some other place where you expect other dogs to be (but don't pick a dog park for a young puppy unless it has a designated area, not everyone is in full control of their sometimes huge and less-than-friendly large dogs and a bad experience at that age can cause lifelong problems).
Btw socialisation is not just about exposing your dog to other dogs, but also to other people. Dogs can have problems with strange people just as they can with strange dogs.
Edit: Also what Momgoose56 said. All our puppies get lukewarm 'oatmeal' (it isn't oatmeal exactly, not an American product, but ground up whole grains that are used as a basis for baby food) with goat milk poured over their kibble once a day when young, up until about 6 months of age (then it becomes an ocassional treat). Other occasional treats include apple, pear, carrot, plain white rice and greek yoghurt, as well as pure beef heart and cooked, sliced beef every once in a while. Just don't feed your dog pork, or any kind of raw leek or onion-type vegetable.
