Does your dog need more friends? – The Washington Post – The Washington Post

Afriend recently told me that she was worried her dog was lonely. He’s the only dog in the house, and there isn’t a park nearby where he can interact with other pups. “Does my dog need friends?” she asked. “Should I set him up on, like … a doggy playdate?”
I had to admit I didn’t have much experience with this particular anxiety. I live in a two-dog household now, but before living with my husband and his shepherd mix, my dog seemed unbothered by his canine solitude — joyful in it, even. The kind of dog who preferred to sniff along the perimeter of the dog park rather than play within it. Still, social interaction is obviously important for human physical and mental health. Could it be the same for dogs? Should I have been more concerned?
