Dogs with good social experiences early on are more friendly, confident, social and stable than those who are isolated and confined. No matter your pup's age, it is not too early or late to start socializing your pup.

It is that you socialize your youngster DAILY with new people and dogs from the age of two months through 2 years to develop a stable dog.

Before you begin your dog socialization program, first master the walk. Walk your dog daily and introduce him to stable dogs along the way.  As you begin socializing your dog beyond the neighborhood walk, safely expose him to each different venue and activity. Work with a professional dog behaviorist if your dog is fearful or aggressive.​
