Socialization is critical in every puppies development. Social patterns are formed and a great deal of learning occurs regarding the puppies surroundings, people, and other dogs. Our socialization program is divided into stages to insure the proper exposure along with many health risks younger puppies face. Most veterinarians recommend not taking puppies to public places where other dogs have been, prior to all the puppies vaccinations. This must be handled with extreme care as we have a short window of the initial socialization period, before a fear stage enters the puppies development. Often times the two coincide prior to the final immunization. Training Canines has developed a step-by-step process in socialization training in order to receive the maximum results in the most positive fashion.
We offer an additional concentrated socialization program. We will keep your puppy an additional 4 weeks for extensive training program. This includes taking the dog to several public places that they were not able to attend prior to their last immunization. During this time they will also be taught other proper puppy manners such as waiting at the door, leave-it, sit before being petted by a stranger, distraction training, are just some of the behaviors they will learn.
Our exteneded socialization program includes the puppies being introduced to children, dogs, various people, places and things. We train them in our neighborhood, so this way it truly gives them the unexpected. On the video below you will see “Emma” aka:Mila is out for her morning walk. She encounters some neighborhood dogs running at her. No worries the dogs are friendly, as I do know who they are.
