The imPAWtance of socialisation!

Socialisation is one of the most important opportunities you can give your puppy. But, it doesn’t stop there!  

Dogs should be socialised throughout their lives to make for a happy and healthy pooch. Here are 4 reasons why socialisation is important at all stages of your dog’s life!

Socialisation is key in leading a happy and well-balanced dogs life!

Dogs who are able to interact, exercise and play with other dogs and people are taught that the world around them is fun.

Socialisation helps build your dog’s confidence every time they are exposed to new interactions. Continuing this throughout their life will encourage positive reinforcement and experiences and ultimately make for a well-rounded dog!

We know that socialisation helps builds confidence which in turn will help ease any anxiety your dog may have in new situations.

Dogs who may not have had the right socialisation can often be fearful when it comes to new experiences like meeting new people or travelling somewhere new.

Day care environments like Bruce’s, where your dog can be exposed to other dogs and people are great for positive experiences.

Dogs love company.

Socialisation is incredibly enriching for your dog and helps lead to a happy pooch and that makes for one happy pawrent!

Playtime with other furry friends is a great opportunity for your dog to socialise, exercise and meet their BFFs.

At Bruce’s we support dogs and people to form enriching and long lasting friendships.
