When can puppies be around other dogs?

I know most vets say 8 weeks. But this question is a little confusing. What is the difference between a puppy and an adult dog? It sounds like if you can leave a puppy in a large room with other dogs that you can leave an adult dog in the same room with other dogs. Is that right?

The differences between a puppy and an adult dog is that a puppy is an immature, under-grown dog. They are smaller, less mature and need more love and attention.

As a rule of thumb, when a puppy is 8 weeks old (or younger) it should not be left in an area where it will be with dogs who are fully grown, fully socialized and of an age to become aggressive towards it. As the puppy grows into an adult dog, it may be fine to leave it alone in a room where the dogs are mature and fully grown.

I have a 3 month old Jack Russell Terrier who was born in May. He came with me from Wisconsin and I've brought him to Maine where he'll stay while I'm gone. If he is in a kennel with 3 older dogs, is it fine to leave him alone?

I think the main difference between a puppy and an adult is age. Puppies are very young and need more attention and care than an older dog (who should already be spayed/neutered)

So, no, I wouldn't leave an adult dog in the same room as other adult dogs, I think they can get on each others nerves and become aggressive towards each other. I have always kept my 2 and 4 year olds separate (they can be ok together) but I'd rather they be in separate rooms than sharing the same. I know we can't control them but they are kids so they need love and attention.

Puppies will be fine if they are with dogs their own age...it really depends on the size of the dogs, if they are very small, very young or very old. If the adult dogs are very large, they can get on each others nerves and that can be dangerous for the puppy. So it really does all depend on the size of the dogs, age of the dogs, the ages of the puppies, and the sizes of the puppies.

I was just wondering about that. A friend said to always keep a 6 month old baby and a 12 month old baby in separate kennels. I said, how old would I have to be to be safe from another puppy?

My sister had a beagle when I was little. He was also a beagle, not a puggle. And when I went to visit, he was 12 years old. But, he was still a puppy in size, so I'm not really sure what she was talking about.

Well when my friends were in school and my brother was in high school, they were in the same class, and were friends. Now when my brother is older, she's with a different friend. She said my brother would get upset and want to chase her friend. The reason being is she was also in the same grade as them, and they both would play, and he would chase her.

But, my friends and I don't get along. My friends would laugh at me, and say that he would play with him. It would drive him up the wall. So I guess if you know how the puppy reacts to other dogs, it's not good to leave them together.

We were wondering too. My son is 6 1/2 months old and we know a little bit about dogs but not a lot. My husband's best friend's wife works at a small vet's office and the vet said the most important thing for him is to socialize him with all breeds of dogs from the time he is 8 weeks old. Our daughter is also 8 1/2 months and we are wondering how old it would be safe to have her in the same room with dogs. The vet said she'd probably be okay with puppies but not adults.

When is it safe to let a puppy have around other dogs?

I think that if the puppy is small and small breeds it is fine but if you have a puppy with a big mouth like my dog who weighs 40 pounds and is a Lab and a Chihuahua mix (half Lab and half Chihuahua) it is not safe.

My dog is 3 1/2 months old and is still in the kennel with another dog, even though we know it's not a puppy and the other dog is older than her and bigger than her. We also know that this is not the case for a puppy but I'm just wondering when it's okay to take a puppy out of the kennel to play and socialize with other dogs and other puppies? Thanks.

The difference between a puppy and an adult dog is that a puppy is still developing and requires more love and attention than an adult dog does. I think it's fine to leave a puppy in a room with older dogs, as long as they are of the same or similar size and both puppies and older dogs are of the same or similar age, the older dogs are not aggressive towards the puppy, the puppy is not in danger of being injured by the older dogs, and the puppy has been socialized with the older dogs, it's safe to leave the puppies in the same room.
