The Local Puppy Bowl!

I thought that you might enjoy seeing a video of Hachi playing with other puppies. We've been attending several puppy socialization classes each week, giving Hachi the chance to play with puppies his own age.

These puppy socialization classes are thought to be really important, even for puppies who have adult dogs at home who like to play with them. Adult dogs grant special "puppy license" to be wild and don't always speak up when the puppy is too rough. Other puppies are far more likely to make it clear when a puppy is playing too rough.

Besides that, it's just plain fun! Enjoy the video of Hachi in his classes and then a clip with Shyla.

  6. OH MY DOGS Hachi!!
    You literally had me giggling like a teenager. Looks like you met your match in the video with the
    Doodle with the same gorgeous fur color as you.
    I love this line, Adult dogs grant special "puppy license". Shyla was surely doing that
    Thank your mom for making this video.

  8. Shyla is so patient with Hachi. It was also interesting to see the different way Hachi played with the puppy mastiff, and then with the poodle mix. We were very surprised to see the Siberian not join in with them. Guess he was more interested in being chased by that fast little zoomer.

  10. Hachi sure is having lots of fun in class. I'm curious to know which of the two were vocalizing when he was playing with Shyla? Keep the Hachi cuteness coming.

    1. Shyla was making the almost continuous growly sound. When Hachi vocalizes, it's usually in the form of a high pitched bark!

    1. He seems to be learning to have the confidence to be lying on his back sometimes while playing now... a good sign, I think.

  14. Oooooooooo! PUPPIES! Just too cute! I missed out on puppy classes cause I was sick as a wee lass, and didn't want to gets, or gives, anything to anyone else. Ma thinks that 's why I bark my arse off at strange doggies on our walkies. ☺ this will be pawsome for you Hachi! Ma says not acting like me is a good thing! BOL!
