Puppies: How to Promote Healthy Social Behavior

  • Sharebar

filhoteA dog’s mental stability in adult life depends heavily on how well he was socialized as a puppy. Without a proper introduction to noises, strange people, and other dogs, your pet can be afraid of a variety of stimuli, such as animals, vacuum cleaners, or even the television.Additionally, aggressive behavior toward adults and children can become a problem.

Another benefit of the period of socialization: a puppy learns to control its strong instincts that are not useful for life with humans. Most dogs have very strong hunting instincts that must be curbed, such as stalking the family cat, bird, or hamster.

The process of teaching your dog about the world around him is rather simple. Bring him into contact with various noises or animals while controlling the situation carefully. If the pet is relaxed and the experience is pleasant, he will see these new interactions as positive and he will be conditioned to see them as normal in the future.

Always introduce new situations gradually while monitoring the situation and observing your puppy’s reaction. Initial distrust is normal, but panic and fear are not productive. The ultimate goal of conditioning the dog is for him to be relaxed and at ease after repeated interactions. If the puppy ends the experience without his tail between his legs, you have succeeded!
