Socialization is important if we want our puppies to grow into healthy, balanced adults. This video show various breeds of puppies: Weimaraner, French Bulldog, Golden Doodles, Golden Retriever, Blue Lacy, Labrador Retriever.
You will want to be able to take your puppy for walks and for rides. You need to get him used to meet people and other animals. There are many ways to acclimate him to the new surroundings. You must take your time and not push your dog into a situation where he is uncomfortable. Puppies do not come into the world knowing all the right things to do, so be patient and have fun with him.
The first few months of the puppy’s life is the best time to introduce him to all the wonders of the world. Expose the pups to everyday chores in the household. The mother will teach them some social skills.
As soon as you bring the new pup home, introduce him to the family in a quiet setting. This gives him time to get to know the person without the noise of many people in the background. That can cause undue stress on the new puppy.
As soon as the puppy is vaccinated and the vet says it is alright, start taking the puppy on walks and outings so he can begin to get used to his surroundings.Make sure your puppy meets people of every age. He might become frightened later if you introduce him to elderly people and he runs into some children. This can lead to aggressive behaviors in some dogs.
Give the person you are introducing a small treat to give to the puppy. This will help build trust between the two. They can get down on the dog’s level and play on the floor with him after a couple of meetings.
The mistake? Thinking that your puppy will be socialized by making him say hi to dogs or people, and that letting dogs “work it out’ is always a good idea. Remember this playgroup mantra: “Are these dogs a good match for my dog *right now*?”
