Puppy socialization is a vaccination
against future behavior problems.

What is socialization?

Socialization teaches your puppy to be comfortable around a variety of people, and to happily accept many of the situations that he is likely to experience with you, as an adult dog.

Why is it important?

We know early socialization is the most effective thing that you can do to enjoy a relaxed, social dog that you can be proud to take anywhere.

How do we do it?

We bring the props to introduce your puppy to novel, fun and positive experiences at home. We control the environment to ensure that your puppy is relaxed and happy while exploring.

We include a field trip to a local store, vet, coffee shop or other relevant location.

See our “Puppy Start Right Pre-School Package” for details.
