Puppy Socialization Part 2.

Socialization is not just about exposure (i.e. just seeing, experiencing new things) your pup has to have a good time doing it.

Make new experiences fun, positive and relaxed.

Go at your dogs pace - respect their threshold, dont force proximity, interaction, etc

Offer praise and make it rewarding - take some high value treats along to make things extra special

If you're puppy is particularly shy, fearful or overly excited - leave the situation and consider reaching out to a professional who can give you some new tools and skills to help your dog
