Puppy Socialization

Did you know that puppies learn and develop a big part of their adult personality by 16 weeks of age? Their window for accepting and experiencing different stimuli (think strangers, day care, grooming, other dogs, kids) can start to close at just 5-6 months of age?

If you want a happy dog that takes life in a joyous stride, the clock is ticking. The positive (or negative) associations that young dogs develop during this critical brain development can last a lifetime … for better or worse. So let’s make it better!

Get your puppy off to a great start by with this handout, written by a Fear-Free certified colleague of Dr. DeWilde, Dr. Kathyrn Primm. If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask a member of our team!
