Socialization is crucial for any dog to integrate into our world. They do not understand, cars zipping by, electronic doors opening, fire alarms going off, kids playing at recess and much more. By exposing the puppies to these items at an early age helps teach them our way of life. Think of how nervous you may feel going to a foreign country, not knowing the culture or language, and then someone yelling at you because you did not react how they felt you should? That is how under socialized puppies feel. We start them safely at 6-7 weeks. As they receive their shots, we then increase their public exposure.
Therapy and companion dogs are put into our 15-week program in order to make sure they will be able to handle all the responsibilities of their new job. To read more about the extended socialization program please CLICK HERE.
