Socializing dogs


                                          Socializing dogs

Socializing is the first step in training for dogs to get a dog that has good behavior. During the first weeks of their lives, small dogs go through different stages of growth and development.

When a puppy is exposed to different new people, places, and situations in a positive way during this period, there is thus a good chance that he will be calm and responsive to them when he confronts them again later in life.

                                                     What is the socialization of dogs?

Socializing is what the dog looks like, or the way he deals with others. The small dog should meet and interact with as many different people, animals and situations as possible. Where he must experiment with many scenes and sounds and know that there is nothing to fear or worry.

When you are about 4 months old, your puppy must learn to accept exposure to strangers, meet other dogs, interact with a veterinarian or a nanny, and meet a diverse group of people.

                                                      When does dog socialization begin?

Socializing your puppy should happen when the dog is between 8 and 16 weeks old. And because they haven't taken all of their vaccinations, you should talk to your veterinarian about when it is safe to expose your puppy to new people and new places.

This is because it is important for the dog not to interact with unknown animals or walk-in areas where unidentified animals might be. As there are many diseases that can be infected or caught by the puppy before the vaccines are complete.

                                                       What is the importance of socializing dogs?

Socializing your puppy helps you become a happy, healthy and well-behaved person in your family. As a properly social puppy is less likely to develop behavioral problems as they grow and become adult dogs.

On the contrary, dogs that do not get early socialization may deal with fear or aggression when exposed to new things. So it is much easier to teach your puppy to accept new things now than to re-train him after developing bad habits through socializing.

                                                       What should be the social pup?

Socializing should include the largest possible number of people and different situations. Serve your puppy to a large group of people, including men, women, children of all ages, people in wheelchairs, men with beards, and people in all kinds of clothes (such as uniforms, sunglasses, coats, umbrellas, hats, gloves, etc.).

Before your puppy gets all the vaccines, you can also start socializing him by inviting people to your house to meet him.

You should also allow your puppy to see large objects falling or moving in front of him. That's where it exposed to noise like trucks and gatherings of people. Keep the puppy calm and reward him for this calm. However, do not go to extremes and subject them to disturbing situations such as fireworks.

Handling, fetching, and transporting exercises are another important part of the puppy's socialization. You should consider the appropriate ways in which you can handle the dog. This is because the dog can be exposed to various situations such as the child pulling his tail ... etc.

The vet may need to restrain him, you may need to fix his feet to cut his nails. If you treat your puppy gently now, you will be less likely to have problems handling it when he reaches adulthood.

                                                    Can the puppy be trained in socializing?

Puppy training lessons are a great way to boost socialization in your puppy. Dog trainers usually refer to these classes as "pup kindergarten." They should address the usual concerns of a new puppy's father, such as home training and stopping aggressive behavior.

A small kindergarten will also help your puppy to rest with new people and be treated well. But your veterinarian should be able to help you find a good place to train your dog for socialization.
