Puppy socialization party for puppies 8-16 weeks old. Games like Magical Mutt and Scooby Says. Facilitated by Ivone Rebelo, experienced R+ dog trainer. Come join the fun!
Here are three helpful reminders when bringing your dog to a puppy party and socializing your dog with other puppies:
- Use Positive Reinforcement: Remember to reward your puppy’s desired behaviors with treats, praise, and rewards. Positive reinforcement will help create a positive association with socialization and encourage good behavior.
- Take It Slow: Allow your puppy to acclimate at their own pace. Introduce new experiences gradually, ensuring they feel safe and comfortable. Avoid overwhelming situations that could lead to fear or anxiety.
- Stay Vigilant: Keep a close eye on your puppy’s interactions with other dogs. Step in if necessary to prevent any aggressive or inappropriate behavior. Use redirection techniques or remove your puppy from the situation if they become overwhelmed or overly excited.
By keeping these reminders in mind, you can make the most of the puppy socialization class and create a positive and enjoyable experience for both you and your furry friend.
