Dog Parks  
Parks can be a good starting point to
socialize your dog. Beginning early in your
pups life it can help discourage
aggressiveness and dominate behavior with
other dogs.

really helpful when teaching you and your
pet how to be on its best behavior  

Off Leash Parks
Be careful with your small breed dogs, many
people prefer to let their larger breeds in
with the small breeds and they play a little
too rough.
