While genetics do play a role in your dog's temperament, proper socialization is key to teaching them how to exist in our human world. Regardless of their breed, size or personality, providing structure and positive experiences in a variety of environments will help to make them feel confident and secure when meeting new people and visiting new places.
ALC starts socialization exercises with puppies as young as 5 weeks, but it's never too late to teach an old dog some new tricks. The holidays are approaching making it a great time to focus on greeting manners with your pup. Contact us to get your dog started in training today.
