How To Safely Socialize Your Young Puppy, Early Puppy Socialization- Advise & Tips

Canine Learning Academy trainers Julie Fryman KPA CTP & Yo Armendariz KPA CTP demonstrates how to safely socialize young puppies not yet fully vaccinated. You won’t want to expose your puppy to unknown dogs or public places until fully vaccinated. Which typically doesn’t happen until 15 to 16 weeks of age.

There are many ways to safely take your puppy out. Use Controlled Environments, like your home, front or back yard. Use a wagon, blanket, car ride, stroller or even carry your pup to take a stroll outside. All socialization is not good socialization. Bad experiences at an early age can make negative impressions for years to come.

If you have friends who have friendly, healthy, vaccinated dogs, invite them to come meet your puppy at your place. Soon after you bring your puppy home, it’s time to start his socialization training. It’s important to expose your pup to different dogs at an early age so that he learns to get along with them. Be sure that every new experience is a positive one..

The first step when introducing a puppy to the vacuum was just leaving the vacuum in the middle of the room without turning it on. I encouraged my puppy with treats and praise each time he came close to or touched the vacuum. Whether you’ve just gotten a new puppy or adopted an adult dog, it’s very important to make sure they can accept handling. Even handling from strangers such as a groomer or vet.

Just remember that the training process will be easier if you start when your puppy is young. Happy Training!
