HOW LONG TO CONTINUE SOCIALISATION?

socialisation is ongoing for the rest of your dog’s life. Your dog as a puppy has met a number of people and a number of dogs, it is also likely that he will meet those same familiar faces each and every day. To keep your dog socialized, he must continue to meet new dogs and new people and new environments.

Canine Squabbles If your dog is unfriendly with lots of other dogs, it means he is not adequately socialized to dogs. (But don’t expect your dog to be best friends with every dog; after all, we aren’t with every person!)A well-socialized dog may still chase, hump and argue. However, socialization ensures your dog has the requisite social savvy to enjoyably and confidently interact with unfamiliar dogs that he may meet and to resolve arguments with other dogs without doing damage. It is easiest to socialize your dog when he is young, but it is never too late to make him more dog friendly.
