Training Young Puppies To Socialize Before It Is Too Late

Posted in Puppy Power

Teaching good manners for puppy could be a fun experience, so why to delay, start now and benefit. Behavioural problems can be solved at any time. But it could be tormenting for the owners to live with a dog that is not trained. So start teaching them from the beginning. Puppies may have temperamental problems that need to be changed from the outset. Training adult dogs can be time-consuming and complicated. Problems related to shyness, aggression, fearfulness may take more time to be resolved in a one-year-old puppy when compared to two months old ones.

Dogs are raised to be enjoyed. Dogs also enjoy the company of their owners, children, and friends. Dogs that are friendly have a great time meeting new people and interacting with them. Pets that are scared have a miserable time outside. It is difficult to get them walk around the park or play during picnics. Their quality of life diminishes. Dogs have to confront people living in the world that is dominated by humans. Such dogs are put away or tied when visitors arrive. Shy or scared dogs are not taken out for a walk. Early socialization can help prevent such untoward behaviour and enhance the quality of the life of the dogs.

Dogs have to be trained before they turn three months, but many owners do not adhere to this and finally, lose the opportunity and are forced to live with untrained dogs. Puppies have to be exposed to a stranger and different environment before eight weeks. Puppies have to be handled, hugged and exposed to various interactions, especially with outsiders and children. This can make them sociable. Subliminal bites can be desensitized with neonatal handling. The puppies have to be socialized to avoid seclusion.

Both predictable and preventable behaviours of the puppy have to be contained before it is too late. When there is low socialization, it is not easy to change the brain functions. This can become a temperament problem leading to aggression and fear. As the puppy grows into adulthood, this can become a major problem. In the case of kennel bred puppies the chances of socializing is very low and by the time the critical eight weeks time is over. That is why breeders concentrate of socializing the puppies. But not most breeders do, and the buyers are left with no choice but to buy untrained litters. Now it is the responsibility of the pet owners to train the puppies to socialize.
