What is socialisation and why do puppies and dogs need it?

Socialisation is not what you think it is and this online crash course for dogs impacted by covid will assist with their socialisation. Many believe dog socialisation is just puppies or dogs forming social interaction with other puppies and dogs. However, this is only one part of puppy and dog socialisation.

Socialisation actually means the process of when a pup is gradually exposed to a situation and starts to form positive associations with that new environment. This could be a hairdryer noise, being home alone, the car, people at the door, people walking past the house, parks, the coffee shop, bikes, skateboards, other puppies and dogs or new humans. Therefore, most socialisation can be achieved at-home with our guidance and this lesson will show you how.
