Hi BW- My husband and I are trying to start a family and we want Hank to be socialized with babies/toddlers/kids for when the time comes. The only problem is, there are no children in our family and none of our friends have kids yet. Every time I see a baby/toddler/child on a walk I want Hank to meet them to get some socialization but I can see that their parents are hesitant due to his size and his puppy energy (Actually, I'm a little hesitant too as I won't know how he'll react) but he always seems interested in the kids. Is it polite to ask the parents if their child can pet him? Our neighbor does have a toddler which Hank "plays" with through the fence but the toddler has always been afraid to pet Hank. Do you think that interaction is socialization enough?
