Socialization is the process of positively exposing your dog to the beings in the world around it. This includes humans, children, elderly, people with different skin colours, runners on the street, and dogs of all ages, sizes, and temperaments. Socialization is showing your puppy that all of these things are non-threatening, and they should be enjoyed instead of feared.
Going to the vet clinic is a part of every pet dog’s life, and it’s just something that they need to accept. In order to make the experience smoother for your dog, implement treats, drop in to the vets office on a regular basis, introduce touch BEFORE going into the clinic, use calming medication if needed, and start the training young.
