Interacting with other dogs can help improve your dog's social skills and behaviour around other animals. Well-socialised dogs are generally more comfortable and confident in various environments.

Play and Exercise

Playtime with other dogs provides physical exercise and mental stimulation. Engaging in playful interactions can help burn off excess energy and prevent boredom.

Emotional Well-Being

Dogs are social animals by nature. Positive interactions with other dogs can provide companionship and reduce feelings of loneliness or anxiety, especially when you're not around.

Learning Opportunities

Dogs can learn from each other, such as appropriate play behaviour and communication cues. This can enhance their overall behaviour and response to different situations.

Mental Stimulation

Engaging in activities with other dogs can challenge your dog's mind and keep them mentally active, contributing to their overall cognitive health.


Some dogs are naturally more sociable and enjoy the company of other dogs, while others might prefer being alone or have specific preferences regarding the dogs they interact with.


A dog's previous experiences with other dogs play a significant role. Positive socialisation experiences early in life can shape their comfort level around other dogs.

Health and Age

Consider your dog's health and age. Puppies and younger dogs may benefit from interactions with other dogs to develop proper social skills, while older dogs might prefer a more relaxed environment.

Behavioural Traits

If your dog displays aggressive or fearful behaviour around other dogs, professional guidance and careful introductions may be necessary to avoid negative experiences.

Personal Preferences

Pay attention to your dog's reactions when around other dogs. If they seem stressed, uncomfortable or disinterested, forcing interactions might not be beneficial.

For dogs with any of the above specific requirements we can offered tailored walkies, where your pet has full attention and vigilance whilst in my care.
