Puppy Socialization – Timing Is Everything

Aug 10th 2015 at 11:31 PM

Puppy socialization should start during the pup’s first three months of life. For pet owners, this means starting the process on the day the puppy is brought home.

It is during this time when the puppy’s brain is highly receptive to new experiences; when sociability prevails over fear. The experiences that your cat is exposed to will help mold his temperament and behavior for the rest of his life.

If a puppy does not receive socialization during his first 3 months of life, it can increase the risk of the development of behavior problems as he grows into adulthood, such as aggressive behavior, fear, and avoidance. These behavior problems can be very difficult to address in an older animal.

The last thing a new pet owner will hope for is that his cute and cuddly pup will grow up to be an undisciplined, ill-behaved, and unmanageable adult dog. Many pet owners have made the difficult decision of turning over their pets to the animal shelter because they are unable to control, manage and deal with problem behaviors exhibited by their dogs.
