Puppy Socialization does not stop once the puppy leaves our home!
It is important to introduce your puppy to many new sights, sounds, smells, people, places, and experiences while he is young, keeping each interaction short, sweet, and positive.
Socialization should happen between weeks 3-16 and continue throughout their lives. I will have your puppy for at least the first 10 weeks of their lives. Through the curriculum, we are able to socialize your puppy and set them off for the best start in life! The effects of this period are unchangeable in a dog’s lifetime.
There are so many benefits to socialization including handling stress, exhibiting self-control, and communicating effectively with other dogs.
What happens when a breeder does not socialize their litters? Or when you stop socializing once your puppy goes home? Poor socialization will produce shy, fearful, aggressive dogs who could also develop separation anxiety. It is difficult for them to get along with other dogs, they will not self-soothe or cope with stress!
