Doggy parties are great fun- your pup gets to make new friends and socialize, and you get to meet so many other cuties! But really, one of the most important steps towards making sure your pup is well trained is socialization.
It means your pup learns how to react appropriately to other dogs, people, and new environments in a calm and pleasant manner.
It’s no surprise then that this English Bulldog pup’s Mom brought him along to dog gathering, so he learns how to play nice with others! There he meets two beautiful Huskies, who are very interested in meeting this new friend! But all this is very overwhelming for this poor pup, who decides he rather stay close to Mom instead. Oh well!
That said, it’s very important that when socialising your pup, you associate events, behaviour, and handling in a calm, positive manner. If your poor pup doesn’t enjoy themselves and gets stressed out instead, then what’s the point?
