How do I socialize my dog with other dogs at the park?

Asked a year ago

Our new dog is a non-aggressive rescue and is very shy around other dogs - borderline antisocial actually. How can I help him gain confidence to become friends with other dogs at the park?

Parks are very overwhelming places for shy dogs. Instead, try setting up “playdates” with just one dog at a time or look for local dog socialization classes. Meeting in a controlled environment will help your dog gain confidence so the park will not feel so scary in the future.
