Puppy socialization

It is very important that puppies are well socialized as it prepares them to cope with living as part of a household. Although dogs need to get on with other animals it is most important that they are focused on their human carers above everything else. Well socialized puppies are more likely to form positive and strong bonds with their owners and animal housemates and will also be able to adapt to any changes within their environment without becoming stressed. This has a positive effect on your dog’s welfare and the relationship they have with you and other pets in the household throughout their life. Puppies that have not been socialized are far less likely to be able to cope with living in a home environment, so before you get a new puppy always ask how the breeder has socialized them.
