Socialization is a Part of Dog Training PDF Print E-mail

Socialization is the process of getting your dog accustomed to various people, objects, animals and situations and provides the opportunity for your dog to familiarize himself with the world in a non-demanding situation. Many people make the mistake of trying to sooth their pet when it acts frightened. If your pet hides under a chair when the vacuum cleaner comes out and you verbally reassure him, he may interpret this as reward for his fearful behavior. On the other hand, if you laugh and giggle when he charges at it and attacks, you are also encouraging and rewarding aggressive behavior. Many pets become fearful or aggressive because their owners have unintentionally trained them to be that way.
