Socialization isn’t just having people pet your puppy!

Socialization is introducing your dog to as many sights, smells, people, sounds, feelings, dogs, textures, surfaces, items, handling, and anything else a dog isn’t naturally exposed to.

Don’t just introduce your dog to people! That’s important but it isn’t the only thing involved in socializing them properly!

I’m hooked on this YouTube channel of a cute Canadian(?) couple who are renovating their farmhouse together. They have v good cats who are often in the videos and (spoiler) they get a puppy a few episodes in.
