puppy socialization

Proper socialization with that new pup of yours, with people, is critical, both inside and out.

The true Socialization Period for a puppy is from 6 weeks of age through the 14th week. Because of the damn virus, puppy socialization is going to be hindered at best, due to social distancing and other factors. Proper socialization for your pup with other (good) dogs is critical as well. This might be accomplished using a Flex Lead (extendable lead) and letting pup meet/greet other dogs while you maintain adequate social distance. As soon as the experts inform us that distancing ourselves is no longer necessary, I strongly urge you to begin/expand the socialization process.

In the meantime, say prayers and remain well.
