Socializing Your Dog

 

Part of training your Puppy/Dog is Socialization. Socialization of your dog is a must if you want a happy and well-adjusted dog. Socialization requires dedication, timing and patience based on the dog’s age and threshold of adaptivity to various levels of stress.

 A well socialized dog will be the welcome well behaved family member you can take with you everywhere!!

 Below you will find a list that includes the majority but, not all the things a Puppy/Dog should be exposed to repeatedly to readily accept anything new that comes along. Exposing your Puppy/Dog to the items on this list and whatever else you can think of (training is only limited by imagination), along with training will ensure that your dog will live a happy and stress free life. Dogs that are exposed to these items early and often in a positive way excel in training and adapt quickly in new situations.
