Puppy Socialization

Don’t delay! Start now to raise a healthy, happy adult dog. Your puppy’s socialization window starts to close at 16 weeks. Before then, your puppy must be positively introduced to all manner of people, dogs, sounds, textures, sights, and situations—not to mention get a foundation in house-training, crate training, bite inhibition, and manners.

It’s a lot to pack in, but we are here to help. With our open-enrollment Puppy Kindergarten class (join any time!) and FREE weekly Puppy Party, you give your puppy the best start in life.

The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior recommends that puppies start socializing in safe environments as early as 8 weeks of age as long as they have had their first round of vaccinations. Read AVSAB Position Statement
