Play with their others

Playing with other dogs is important for the social development of the puppy. However, experience has shown that the visit of puppy play hours is not always the best solution.

Often, the Akita puppy learns here already to dominate other dogs. The least puppy groups have well socialized old dogs, is that, if it is to gruff. The human being is often too slow. Another problem is that as a puppy hours is often too long and the dogs are then very turned up and ultimately overwhelmed.

A group of puppies in the four to five, in age and size as can play same puppies where there ideally is an experienced old dog that intervenes at an early stage in Rüpeleien, where the breaks are made and there is still no commands, an Akita can make certainly good experience.

Such groups are unfortunately rare. If you have the opportunity to meet with the cast members of your puppy that is a wonderful thing. Perhaps there are about peers puppies, with which your Akita can play in your neighborhood or surrounding area.

Because the puppy also must learn to handle frustration, it is important that not every dog meeting automatically leads to the game but that it is also practiced without contact to other dogs to pass through.
