    DefaultDoes anyone live near me?

    I live in north central Ohio just outside Bucyrus. I have been reading the forms about how important it is for dogs to be around other dogs to learn to act proper and I have no dog people in my family or small circle of friends. I sure would like to introduce Beau to some dogs because I want him to be well socialized. Beau is a little over 5 mo. old and has had his shots and just got neutered. Gee I feel like I am putting Beau on a dating site . Would like to hear from those near by.

    I see by reading I am having the same problems as others with Labs Beau's age. The typical over active pup that likes to jump and chew but overall he is doing pretty well with his training.

    I would take him to a puppy obedience class near you. That's a great way for him to meet new dogs/people.

    Seriously, check for puppy classes, or basic obedience classes near you. You will get some great training help and socialization even if you are not really interested in serious training. Also do a websearch for a Lab Club or Dog Park in your area.

    Here's a link to a list of dog parks/off leash areas in Ohio, you should meet lots of dogs/people there:

    I live in SE Ohio, but that is pretty far away from you. I do pass by Bucyrus on the way home to my parents. There is a club near there that puts on an obedience show each year, and also an all breed club that has a conformation show. The training club is the Tarhe All Breed Traing Club, but I don't think they have a website. I'll PM you with the president of the other club and give you his phone number - he should be able to hook you up with someone from the training club.

    I agree with Pat...see if there is a dog club or lab club near you & join. Clubs usually have alot of activities for dogs & it is a good way to socialize.
