Pip has just had had his final shots (12 weeks old), so can start to go out soon. I want to get out as much as possible, both for his socialisation and to burn off some of his seemingly boundless energy. He's a rescue and had very little socialisation previously until he came to me. However i don't want to overdo it as i'm sure the outside world will be quite scary for him. Also i've been told too much exerise isn't good at this age. How do i balance this? How long each day should we be out? Are sort and frequent trips out better? I intend to take him to the park/petstore/friends houses etc. I know i shouldn't pick him up (he's already quite heavy) or give attention/treats when he's scared as this just encourages fearful behaviour, its gonna be tough to ingnore him though. Also he hasn't been near traffic so how should i deal with that? For instance he froze in the rescue centre and vets car parks something that could be dangerous when crossing a busy road - not that we have too many near here. I know lots of questions, any help greatly appreciated.
