SOCIALIZING YOUR DOG
What is socialization
▶ Socialization is the social interaction between members of a pack (family)
▶ It can apply to people as well as dogs, and even other species.
▶ We generally refer to socialization as teaching our dogs the ability to get along with others
Why is socialization important
▶ Socialization teaches animals how to behave in a pack hierarchy.
▶ It teaches dogs the pack order, and also how to behave towards others.
How do you socialize your dog
▶ At Partners Dog Training we take training in social skills very seriously
The importance of dog training
▶ Training your dog establishes a foundation of respect, which in turn teaches them to understand
▶ This understanding is then applied to manners, which establishes social skills.
▶ Without training, you would be trying to teach someone while speaking a different language.
Understanding the signs
▶ We suggest taking a class in learning the signals animals use to communicate
▶ This will allow you to read the cues they use when socializing with members of their pack.
