Is that normal for a dog?


Is that normal for a dog?

So next week Pongo will turn 6 months, and so far he is the friendliest puppy i have ever owned. He loves people, LOVES them, and he’s really good with children and everything (unlike his dad who is the devil). But my concern is that he does not have any intrest in animals. I try and socialize him with ohter dogs, but he refuses to have anything to do with them. He just tries to avoid them (and this happened with about a dozen dogs). The other day i was walking and a cat passed by, and i braced myself for some wild chase, but nothing happened (even the cat was unfazed by him). Is this normal? what’s wrong with him? or what am i doing wrong?

please help, any advice?

  1. If he’s really friendly with people and isn’t afraid of other dogs or animals then I wouldn’t worry unnecessarily, just keep taking him to places where there are other dogs so that he’s use to being around them. If he’s actually afraid of other dogs and shy’s away from them then maybe there’s a deeper issue but hard to tell as I don’t know the dog. I would be very happy if my Mutley dog didn’t chase cats! 🙂

    • HAHAHA,
      thanks for the reply. I guess I’m not really bothered by it because he only seems to be ignoring other animals and not in fact scared of them. I’ll just keep socializing him and hope he grows out of this “phase”

      Thanks again 🙂
