|Socialize Your Puppy|
All puppies go through critical stages - important times when the environment profoundly influences later behavior. There are several critical stages in your dog's psychological development, and some excellent books on the subject. Here's information that will help you handle your puppy properly.
Socialization for life
Socializing your dog doesn't end when your pup is four months old. The well-rounded, well-behaved, happy dog experiences life - goes places; does things; is your companion. The more activities you share throughout your dog's life, the happier she will be - and you will be, too.
If your dog isn't sufficiently well-behaved to take visiting at Grandma's, or hiking in the woods, or she won't lie quietly under your table at an outdoor café - train her. Work on manners as part of your daily interaction with your dog, and then take the show on the road. Good behavior isn't an accident; it takes effort - but it's well worth it.
Here's an example of how to do it. Start at home teaching your dog to lie quietly by your side while you eat. Train in different places around the house - kitchen, dining room, family room, indoors and out. Whenever you're eating - even just a snack, make it a ritual. Soon she'll start to understand that when you eat, her job is to lie quietly next to you. That accomplished, plan a field trip to an outdoor café. These first excursions are for the sole purpose of focusing on your dog, helping her learn civilized public behavior. Think of it as a day of "Mocha-chino and manners."
Once you've worked on your dog's good behavior in a variety of new places, she'll be a pleasure to take anywhere. Her good behavior will become as natural as breathing.
A dog is most content when she is part of your life and your activities. And you'll have the greatest canine companion imaginable. Could anything be better?
