Making Your Puppy Comfortable in Social Settings

September 30, 2020 2 min read

Getting a new puppy is an exciting thing; a time to welcome a new member into your family, especially when they are so cute and fun to be around. With this being said, it is important for you as a new puppy owner to have a long-term view for your pet. You should work to ensure that it will live a happy life, and will be comfortable and able to behave in a wide range of social environments.

This is what makes socializing a puppy so important. Making sure that your dog is constantly engaged with new things allows them to learn and grow. In turn, they become as well behaved as possible for the rest of their life going forward.

The good news about this is that socializing a dog is actually simple. All you have to do is bring them with you to new places, and stretch their boundaries whenever possible.

One of the best ways to do this is to bring your new puppy on rides in your car. Whenever you are going somewhere, simply bring your dog along. They will love looking out the window and seeing the exciting world that is all around them. Nearly everything is a brand new experience for a puppy, and then will be happier than ever when you give them new things to look at and explore.

Playing with other dogs is another great way to make your puppy more comfortable while constantly learning new things. You should set them up to play with other dogs as soon as you can, and make sure that these dogs have a wide range of ages. Stay with your puppy and coach them through how to get along with other dogs. Scold them when they are acting poorly, but praise them when they are acting calm and respectful while playing with the other dogs.

These are just a couple of the best ways that you can easily socialize your new puppy and get them on the right track to a happy and fun life.
