He must be potty trained.Many people treat their dogs like family, even letting them sleep in the same beds, eat during family meal time, and spend hours upon hours of playing together. In fact, many even take their dogs everywhere they go, so many pet parents are especially excited to go to establishments that are pet-friendly.
While more and more people and establishments are becoming open about having pets in the vicinity, it is also the responsibility of pet parents to train their dogs properly to become socialized, friendly, and well-mannered pets who are comfortable wherever they go and whomever they are with. While this could be hard work, there are some resources and animal training schools to help. After all, if you want to bring your dog to public places, it is your responsibility as the pet parent to be considerate and respectful of those around you.
Things to Learn If You Want to Bring Your Dog to Public Places
He must be potty trained
A well-mannered dog takes a dump on schedule and in areas specifically allotted for pooping. At the very least, he will do it away from public eye. As a dog owner, also have the courtesy of picking up after your pet, especially when he pooped in an area otherwise not allotted for pooping.
He should be relaxed and calm in a new environment
When you bring your dog to public places, make sure that he knows you are in charge. This way, he will know better than get into mischief or bark at other people or animals. One of the most important dog training tips is to teach your dog to be more relaxed in new surroundings, make him behave around strangers, and expose him to new experiences.

He must learn the importance of obedience
Teach your dog obedience through voice commands. Dogs speak a different language than humans, but they are smart enough to make phonetic connections that aid in communication. Once your pet is associated with your language and is able to learn the right commands, he will be more obedient when you bring your dog to public places.
Of course, responsibility aside, as a pet owner, you should give your pet something else too.
You must give him the love and attention he needs
At two months, a puppy is practically an adult, and at that age, being around his litter mate will help him learn communication, social dominance and submission, and other survival skills. However, once he is separated from his canine family and thrust into a new environment, he will have to learn to interact with people and other animals. Because of this, a dog needs loving pet parents who will take care of him and keep him safe around cars, babies, stairs, escalators, and other things that they will have to learn to live with.
Owning a pet is incredible, and no pet could ever be considered “bad” as long as pet parents are committed to raising them right. And if you ever thought of getting a dog, make sure that you know and understand the responsibilities that come with it in order to keep your pet healthy, happy, and well-behaved enough to bring your dog to public places.
