    I wanted to say thanks for this suggestion! I took miss Daisy out and she is definitely nervous about different sounds. It's really quiet in my house (we don't have tv so other than the odd...

    Yes, this is more my focus for now -- people places rather than very busy "dog" places. Of course, there are some dogs around, but this weekend I'll be walking on snow rather than grass/pavement, so...

    Since it sounds like you see a lot of dogs on a regular basis, do you find that the early socialization makes a big difference, or is it easy to "catch up" later?
