Activity description
Broodle Griffons are so tiny and cute, you might have the urge to pick them up and carry them everywhere. However small, it's important to remember that they are still dogs and need to be treated just like their bigger cousins. Your dog is likely to develop small dog syndrome - acting snippy or aggressive, jumping on people, and displaying alpha tendencies - unless you give them proper training. Walking on a leash is just one of these activities that helps teach them discipline and prevents small dog syndrome. Teach your dog how to walk on a leash just like you would a bigger dog, and they will be happy to go out with you around the block.
Step
1
Don't pick them up
This first step is for the owner. Avoid picking up your dog without warning to cuddle or move to another place. This can make them feel uneasy and cause them to growl or lash out. They should be trained to come when called like a bigger dog and given a warning when you are doing to pick them up. It's healthy for them to walk places like any other dog, and they will be happier to go on their own four paws.
Step
2
Loose leash walking
Teach your Broodle Griffon how to walk on a loose leash. Start by going out for a walk. When your dog hits the end of the leash and begins to pull, stop moving and wait for them to give tension. When they do, walk forward. Because they are smaller, make sure your movements are gentle and not abrupt.
Step
3
Daily walks
Now that your Broodle Griffon has learned how to be an excellent walking companion and not pull on the leash, make walking part of your everyday routine. Even just 20 minutes per day can be a major factor in the health and behavior of your furry companion.

Activity description
Small dogs like the Broodle Griffon can often be intimidated by larger dogs and too scared to learn how to play and socialize. Finding a group of smaller dogs for your pint-sized pup to play with will ensure they learn important social skills and gain the confidence necessary for them to eventually meet and feel comfortable around much bigger dogs. You can get together with other small dog owners to create a fun and safe space for your pups, or some places even have dog parks specifically for small dogs to interact. Playing with dogs their own size is an important step in their development.
Step
1
Mini friends
It's important to find a group of little dogs for your dog to play with. If you don't know anyone else with a small dog, you can often find groups online. Meet Up is a good place to look. If there is a dog park nearby just for smaller pups, you can also go there.
Step
2
Meeting up
Just like big dogs, little dogs need plenty of space to meet and get to know each other. You can head to a backyard or a dog-friendly park for the pups to introduce themselves. Try to avoid someone's house because these spaces are not neutral and dogs might be prone to more outbursts of aggression.
Step
3
Weekly meetings
Socializing your dog takes time. It's not something they can learn over one or two visits. Make a commitment to showing up once per week and getting the dogs together. After several weeks you should see lots of improvement in your dog's confidence and behavior.
