Novel Approach to Puppy Socialization

Handler in mask with puppy

Always be yourself.  Unless you can be a pirate, then always be a pirate!  Because socialization is puppies learning how to handle novel things, we like to introduce all types of things and keep it fun!  It's important that our puppies learn that the world is a safe, interesting place.  While it's okay to be careful around something new, we want our puppies to be curious and build confidence.  For example, Master Handlers wore a Halloween mask while playing with and talking to Camo & Cosmo, who sniffed and explored.  These pups figured out that pirate or not, they're on board to search out treasure!
