Socialization Checklist

Socialization is the key to a well-rounded puppy.

The first 16 weeks is the critical socialization period of a dog’s life.

RULES OF SOCIALIZATION:

 

  • Make it fun for your puppy!

  • Don't force your puppy to confront their fears as this can backfire and create an aggressive/fearful response.

  • Go at your puppy’s pace. Let them initiate each approach to something new and allow them to retreat when they need to feel safe.

  • Your puppy may be socialized to your household but you need to continue to expose them to new things, places, and contexts.

  • Pair treats with exposures to make good associations if necessary and remember that socialization is time-sensitive.
