I dont suppose there are any places to meet other people with (well mannered and sociable) dogs here in las vegas / Henderson?

(preferably female) i have a 3 month old puppy who has 2 sets of shots so i dont want to let her socialize with just any pup but healthy and other non aggressive dogs. She's been very well socialized up until this point and dont want her to loose that.

I was reading about some of the dog parks and some people take their aggressive dogs there so i am a little worried about letting her go.

Anyway, any advise would be great. thanks

Stay away from Desert Breeze on Spring Mountain Rd. That's where all of the dog fighters go.

What kind of a dog do you have?

I have a Tornjak. (see Wikipedia explanation Tornjak - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) I just had to go a very very long way to get her because her breed is not common and don't want anything bad to happen to her. at the same time i want her to be able to socialize with other "safe" puppies. She does good in obedience school with the other dogs but thats only for 1 hour 1 time per week :-(

Tornjak needs early socialization. Early experiences, before 9 months of age, have a very significant effect throughout the dog's life. They need to be confronted with all potentially fearful stimuli as early as possible, in order to avoid later fear reactions. Traffic noise, big trucks and buses will provoke fear reactions in adulthood, if the Tornjak has not previously faced these situations several times as a puppy. In this early age all Tornjak puppies have to meet as many strange people as possible, and also other animals, dogs, and pets especially, for developing a good and stable behaviour as an adult. No special training or equipment is needed.
this is why i was looking for more socialization as possible.

I brought my puppy at around 3 months to sunset park in the small dog section. She was quite shy at first but quickly got the hang of it and has progressed significantly since then. She had most of her shots at the time but the reality is that dogs can catch diseases even with all their shots. It's just less likely.

It's pretty big. You can enter into it from either Sunset or Eastern Ave. The dog park part is located on the side of Eastern about a mile from the fences of the airport runways.

Never had a problem with aggressive dogs at Children's Memorial Park at Gowan & Rainbow. Not in your neck of the woods, but thought I'd throw it out there.

well nothing in the valley is very far i am more worried about having safe puppies for my pup to play with. her well being is way more important then a drive. Her breed was almost exstint for a while and due to the Tornjak registry in croatia its comming back.
