Early socialization is critical for the development of young puppies. Most brain development takes place before they are 16 weeks of age so the more you can expose your puppy to, the less likely they will be fearful adults. The less fearful an adult dog is the more likely they will enjoy interacting with new people and new dogs and the more likely they will enjoy exploring new places and new situations with you and your family.
Too often though, we think socialization is just meeting a couple new people and a few neighborhood dogs, so we too quickly assume our puppies are socialized and we rush into 'training'.
Socialization is so much more than that. Socialization also includes new places and new experiences. That is where Puppy Adventures comes in. During this unique 4 week adventure, your puppy will not only meet new people and new dogs, but they will also be exposed to new situations, new sights and new sounds. Slow down, let your puppy be a puppy. Let them have adventures while they are still open to exploring the world around them.
Week 1 - What's that?. The basics of socialization, and exposure to uncommon objects including wheelchairs, walkers, balloons...
Week 2 - Up, over, and through. Your puppy will navigate a puppy sized obstacle course.
Week 3 - Walk this way. Your puppy will be introduced to new surfaces including the ball pit and wading pool.
Week 4 – Sights and Sounds. Your puppy will be exposed to uncommon sounds like alarms and thunderstorms, and to uncommon sights such as people in hats, uniforms, and helmets.
We know that socialization may sound trivial - but it's not. Socializing today minimizes the chance of having a fearful adult dog later. Sign up today and get the adventure started!
