Importance of Socialization While Young.

Saturday, September 27th, 2008

Socialization during puppy hood is very important. For a well balanced, happy and social adult dog, socialization needs to start as soon as you get your new puppy. You have seen me posting about Force since I got him 12 days ago. I picked Force up when he was 49 days old exactly. In the last 12 days, Force has visited the vet to make sure he was healthy; rode on a ferry boat; has been to PetsMart; training evaluations and demos; training lessons, both private training and group lessons. And he has even been to Wisconsin. The slide show below is of Force in WI at a dog trainer’s seminar: Ecollarpallooza. Force was never in danger and was able to be socialized with adults, children and dogs. Some of the top dog trainers in the USA along with a trainer from Greece were in attendance with their dogs at this conference. If you have been watching The Dawg Trainer Twitter account, you have seen pictures of Force playing with other dogs during training sessions and with a group of children. Allow your dog to walk around and explore his environment in a safe manner. Force has been able to explore the world with my guidance. This well help him to become a well rounded, balanced and confident adult. Enjoy the slide show.
