WHAT IS IMPORTANCE OF SOCIALISATION?

Socialisation is vital for proper mental and social development in dogs Well-socialized dogs  live much more relaxed, peaceful and happy lives than dogs who are constantly stressed out by their environment benefits of socialisation

Well socialized dogs tend to be friendlier and less fearful of the kinds of individuals they were socialized to.

Don’t underestimate how important it is to continue to socialize your dog well into adulthood. I’ve seen quite a few dogs who seem to have been well socialized early in life, were friendly and accepting of people and other dogs and then began to react with threats or aggression during social encounters.

,Why should this happen? A period in adolescence when dogs become more cautious and perhaps aggressive towards people . If this aggression is due to a lack of experiences in adolescence or early adulthood, one way to prevent it would be to continue socialization well into adulthood.These activities might include taking your dog out frequently to meet other people. Regular play dates with other dogs and/or trips to the park can help continue socialization. and have pleasant experiences with other  people and dogs
