Importance of Socialization

Socialization can make or break a dog and determines what kind of adult it will become.

  • Approximately 4,000 dogs a day are euthanized in this country—many due to the lack of proper socialization. 
  • A well-socialized dog is great with all people and other dogs and with proper training, can go with you anywhere.
  • Learn what socialization is and how you can take advantage of this very important stage in your dog's life.
