As you plan for your fall barbecues and bonfires, have you thought about how you’ll prep your pup? Having large numbers of people in your house can be quite the shock to dogs who aren’t used to it. This is why socializing your dog is an important practice to exercise as a dog owner.
It can be traced that many breeds of dogs can trace their ancestors back to wolves, especially when you look at their genes. What’s curious, though, is that through domestication, we’ve seemed to groom dogs to be more loving and friendly by nature. This proves that dogs want to show and be shown affection and that any unfriendly instincts – while still present in some breeds – have been essentially phased out, making socializing your dog a walk in the park. Here are some things to keep in mind when working to socialize your dog:
In addition to improving your dog’s overall demeanor and behavior in social situations, actively socializing your dog will make stressful situations for them – like going to the vet or the groomer – much more manageable.
