New puppy people are very interested in teaching their pups basic skills like walking on a leash and to sit and stay. These behaviors are certainly important, but they are not puppy-friendly or a priority for your new puppy. Rather, socialization - introducing the puppy to ‘all the things’ - is one of the most important tasks you should focus on with a new puppy. Join us as we talk about socialization for your puppy, what it is, why it matters, and how to do it.
