DogDayOne and Paws4Fun have combined forces to put the word out about socialization of young puppies. By supplying a free Socialization List for everyone to access they are reaching out to the dog owning community to help raise dogs deal with the challenges of our society and prevent bite incidents.
Sam Turner, Professional Pet Guild Member, (http://www.paws4fun.nl) states “Due to lack of socialization puppies can develop problems and unwanted behaviors that can be anything from inappropriate barking, chewing, separation anxiety and aggression to general reactivity”.
What puppies need is to be guided through all the aspects of our society. Learn how to deal with different sorts of people, traffic, other dogs, children, joggers and the list goes on. What puppies need is to be taught how to respond appropriately in life situations. Our society puts great demands on our dogs and DogDayOne and Paws4Fun are on a mission to teach puppy parents what puppies need in their first stages of life so they can raise the perfect modern day pet.
What do we want from our modern day dogs:
- calm behavior around people, children and other animals
- self control when faced with joggers, horses, bikes, playing children etc.
- social friendly behavior towards other dogs and pets
What puppies need to achieve these goals:
- socialization plan to introduce the puppies to different people, dogs and situations
- training to teach desirable behaviors using reward training
- the socialization list
