This info graphic makes light of puppy socialization but behind that humour is the truth. Many people are under the misconception that socializing a dog means we encourage interactions between our puppy and every human and dog they come across. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Just as we would not encourage our children to approach and interact with every stranger and animal they meet, we should not encourage our puppies to do that either. Instead, we should expose our puppies to different environments while maintaining engagement. We should expose our puppies to environments with other dogs and people but instead of asking for them to engage with those people and dogs, we should ask them to engage with us.
What happens when we force our maturing puppy to meet every stranger and dog they pass? Usually one of 3 things will happen. They will become overexcited and be unable to contain themselves around people and dogs which will lead to rude, overexcited greetings. They may become insecure because they are expected to trust a world that is far too big for them and develop fearful behaviour. Or, they may become defensive because they couldn’t possibly feel safe and trust everyone they ever meet so the develop some defensive reactivity.
The good news is, a skilled trainer can help you manage and condition your dog past the behaviour of your dog is experiencing those symptoms. #dogtrainer #dogtraining #trainthemdontblamethem #dogsofinstagram #balanceddogtraining #dogsocialization #bullherder #bulldog #americanpitbullterrier #rawfeddogsofinstagram #rawfeddog #sportdog #terrier #bostonterrier #hound #dogoargentino #bandogge #belgianmalinois #dutchshepherd

We are still celebrating #Terrier
errier week here at In Your Dog House.
My sleepover dog from last night. Felicia😃 Felicia is a pit bull x possibly hound and is very sweet and was I was asked to take her on her first sleepover. It wasn’t all smooth sailing; initially Felicia found it difficult to settle and followed me around my little cabin. She did settle after about an hour and I noticed she was a bit gassy. She got up and sat at the door and whimpered so I took her out and she did a big wee but no number 2. When we went back in she lay down but continued to pant for an hour even though there was no heating on. Her resting resp rate was 132 BPM and I was starting to get concerned and think I should call someone but decided to take her outside again. Well what do you know, she defecated and when we went back inside she relaxed right down!! She did sit up each time she heard a noise outside but otherwise smooth sailing. This girl wags her tail if you even look her way, she is so full of joy. If sitting or laying next to you and you pat her face, she reaches up with her paw to push your hand down to her tummy, her preference for patting. Very eager to please and all she wants is to be loved which she does return with kisses 😚
