I would personally stay away from dog parks, too many owners of aggressive dogs take their dogs there to "socialize" at your dog's expense. Even one bad experience with another dog can scare your dog for life if it's serious.
I would recommend going into pet stores, hardware stores, other stores that don't sell food that are not posted "no pets". In the summer some outdoor markets are great. Also, grooming salons, even if you dog does not require professional grooming. Just have them do a nail trim and tell them that you are sozializing your dog and to just make it a good experience (with you there).
Puppy training classes are great if they are small and only have dogs of similar size (separate small and large dog classes).

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.
