- Looking for help with puppy training? Puppies are cute, playful, lots of fun, but also lots of hard work. Having a puppy can be a more difficult task than you anticipated. Puppy training eliminates bad behavior quickly! Puppy training quickly restores peace and order in your home, enabling you to enjoy your new pet without stress. Let me help you make the transition easier and more enjoyable for the both of you.
How important is socialization? Some veterinarians will tell you to wait to take your puppy to public places until their 3rd round of vaccinations, but at 8-20 weeks of age puppies are like little sponges that soak up everything there is to see, hear, and feel.
- That’s why it is so important to get them out and socialize them as much as possible at a young age. Check out this article from the American Veterinary Society on their views of early socialization.
Of course, taking your puppy to the dog park where it can interact with unknown dogs may not be the best idea, but getting your pup out to parks, walking on busy streets, and in a puppy class where the other pups are healthy and up to date on vaccines are the best things you can do to socialize your puppy in a safe and positive way!
