Socialisation of dogs

Socialising dogs can help prepare them for new encounters.
Pet sitters can find themselves caring for dogs who are not prepared to meet new dogs or go out in public. It can be a challenge.
Last week David the Dogman discussed a method of early ‘socialisation’ of dogs as a good preparation for their behaviour when meeting new dogs. As regular dogsitters will tell you it can make all the difference if a dog is prepared through socialisation for new canine encounters.
As a dog owner ‘socialisation’ of your dog can help make your dog easier to look after and more importantly it makes them more comfortable and relaxed in public places meeting new canine friends if they understand the friendly process of getting to know other dogs.
If you have dogs to care for while you are away on holiday get in touch. We can find you experienced pet sitters to help.
