I am sorry you are concerned about Bobby's socialization. I am sorry you have arthritis, as well.

If you think he would enjoy the company of other dogs, you could try sending him to a day care service a couple of days a week. He wold have a chance to play with other dogs, and get some exercise. The workers at the day care could observe him and see how he interacts with other dogs, if he is enjoying himself and joining in.
