We often hear people talking about the socialization of their dogs. Socializing a dog should be a part of every dog owner’s routine.
A puppy can begin the socialization at a very young age, beginning between 12 to 16 weeks and continuing through the life of the dog. It is important to note that a puppy should have all the appropriate shots before beginning the socialization process.
Socializing a dog is basically what it sounds like: getting the animal used to casual interactions. When socializing, a puppy should be meeting and interacting with all sorts of people, animals and environments.
So why should you socialize your dog? These are three great reasons why:
1. Aggression. A dog that has been socialized is much less likely to become aggressive as an adult. Aggression in a dog can lead to him biting another dog or human. A dog bite in Wisconsin can lead to the loss of the dog.
2. Behavior. As a puppy grows into adulthood, it can begin to develop behavioral problems such as chewing, digging, and barking. A socialized dog is much less likely to engage in troublesome behavior, and often it can be corrected more easily.
3. Well-being. The overall well-being and happiness of a dog is much better when it has been socialized. Social adjustment will help him become a happy, well-behaved, and healthy member of the family.
Not all dogs are socialized and trained correctly. This can create problems such as biting. If you have been a victim of a dog bite, you may be entitled to compensation.
