Let’s Get Social

Dogs need friends just like their owners do.  So many dog handlers think a cute puppy kindergarten class in Racine County is the answer.  Puppy fun classes are enjoyable to see but they do not develop lifelong socialization lessons.  They can create future problems.  When puppies are playing you do not have control of them to correct improper behavior so they may even develop problems they didn’t have originally.

 

Socialization with other canines does not start with housemates, neighbors, or other dogs that visit your Racine County home on a often.  It should start with canines they don’t know.  The most important time in the dog’s life to work on socialization is between 10 months and 24 months of age…and then continue for the rest of their lives.

 

Allow your dogs to play with other canines but be aware of dog parks in Racine County (or anywhere).  You are aware of how much socialization your dog has but you can’t know about another dog.  We now live in a litigious time and if 2 canines get into a argument and your dog wins even if he didn’t start it, you will be sued.

 

Take your dog to as many public places in Racine County as you can and be sure they are in your control.  The only way a dog can learn is with life experiences where you can correct any bad behavior.  Try places of business where they allow pets, go to drive throughs at the local fast food restaurant, try a reputable day care, go to group classes where socialization is stressed.

 

At Rock’s Positive K-9 Training we work with dogs with socialization problems all the time and it is stressed throughout all training aspects.  Check our class schedule and try one of our group training sessions.
