  • Purpose of Puppy Socialization Class:

  • Helps puppies interact with other animals and people.
  • Benefits of Puppy Socialization Classes:
  • Puppies are more likely to remain in their adoptive homes.
  • Recent studies support the positive effects of socialization classes.
  • Finding a Class:
  • Speak to your veterinarian for class recommendations near you.
  • Class Supervision:
  • Ensure the class is supervised by an animal care professional.
  • Confirm that the class is designed for puppies only.
  • Inappropriate Actions in Class:
  • Punishment or discipline should never be used in puppy classes.
  • Rough handling, such as rolling your puppy over or holding him down, is inappropriate.
  • Yelling at your puppy or jerking on his collar or leash is not acceptable.
  • Response to Upset Behavior:
  • If your puppy seems upset by any aspect of the class, assess if the activity is appropriate.
  • If the activity is not suitable, do not permit your puppy to participate.
  • Addressing Fearful Behavior:
  • If your puppy reacts fearfully in a non-threatening situation, consult with your veterinarian.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your puppy's socialization experience is positive and beneficial.
