What does it mean to socialize your dog?
You have heard a lot about the importance of socializing your dog, but you aren’t exactly sure what this means. How can you better understand it?
Socializing your dog means getting him used to new and different situations and individuals. While socializing may mostly refer to spending time with others, your pet will also need to get familiar with how to behave in new circumstances. This means that your pet will need you to bring him out and about with you when it’s appropriate to do so in addition to helping him make some friends with those you spend a lot of time around. This allows your pet to grow comfortable in a variety of places so she can make the most of wherever she is and whoever she is with.
