After a week of socialization with Hope and Ernestine, Smoochie has returned with a lot more worldly experience. Exposure to large and medium breed dogs, little kids, new sights and sounds and of course, time away from us, was exactly what our little pistol needed. Of course, the switch-off was at the grooming salon, which added even more new experiences to the list. We will keep up the socialization and help reduce her new found fears and boost her confidence. We have seen it! We just need to keep it up and keep it consistent.
