How to socialize puppy before having all vaccinations and what the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior says about taking your puppy out.

I know I have heard so many different things about getting your puppy out. What to do and what not to do but with so many different options what’s the “right” thing to do. I do know, that getting your young pup out is needed and they need to be exposed in good ways to new things but how do you do that?

Socializing your puppy from an early age is really important. An under socialized puppy can become fearful and reactive to things in the world around them.

Even before your puppy has had their vaccinations, it is important to carefully expose them to things in their environment. Just because they can’t walk on the ground, it doesn’t mean they can’t experience new sights, smells and sounds out and about.

Get creative and find ways to safely expose your puppy to new locations.You can carry your puppy, or use a pet stroller, wheeled crate or carrier and take them with you wherever you go.

These early experiences make a huge difference.

Here’s what the AVSAB has shared about getting your puppy out.
