Dogs who are well socialized when young grow up to be much more friendly, social, confident and stable than those who are contained and isolated.
No matter your dog's age, the Houston Dog Whisperer will help you and your puppup learn to enjoy gallivanting in our big beautiful world! You will take great confidence in knowing that you can trust your pup to behave reliably and respect your guidance given any situation he faces.
Only begin socializing your dog when you are in the mind set and have the skills of pack leader. It is your job to communicate the rules and boundaries of our domesticated world. Taking youyour pup out and letting him make wrong behavior choices creates great instability.
Your canine needs role models of his own species to play with and learn from.
Puppy only play groups are the blind leading the blind. More value comes from stable older pack members who provide leadership to the juveniles.
