🐶 Puppy Socialisation 🐶
There’s misconception that socialisation is just about exposure to other dogs when Infact its exposure to the world around them 🌍
The first 20 weeks of a puppy’s life is a crucial time for socialisation, as during this time they are more accepting of new experiences due to their learning stage.
Some tips for socialising your pup:
•Turn every experience into a positive and rewarding experience
•Exposure alone is not socialisation, interaction is key to socialisation
•Never force your puppy into an interaction as this could stick with them as a negative experience
•Your puppy is the only one who will determine if the interaction was positive, so look out for signs of distress or anxiousness, remove the puppy and try again in a different way.
