So we got a pup, well she's 8 months old. Half mini beagle half mini Australian shepherd. She came potty trained. She doesn't bark much. She perfect with the kids. Walks okay on a leash, she pulls a bit, doesn't bark at other dogs or even care when another do is around. HOWEVER if people are around, she thinks she will die if she doesn't go meet them. She pulls on the leash jumps up tries to get to them. This needs to be fixed. We walk her daily and we just don't see enough people to get it in her head how she should react to people.
Tomorrow we are going to a pumpkin patch, a dog welcome pumpkin patch. I am debating taking her. I think maybe I can get some decent training in with her but I'm worried she will be such a handful that it will distract from us having a good time. So, is it a good idea? If I do take her what's the best way to handle her and teach her to stay calm around people. We have only had her for a week, we are just now working on basic commands with her and she doesn't have those down pat, we'll she does at home but not when we are on walks.....
