3 Benefits of Dog Socialisation
- Builds Confident Dogs
Confident dogs learn how to navigate the world without fear. It allows them to understand that other dogs aren’t out to attack them. That loud noises won’t hurt them and that strangers aren’t a threat.
- Prevents Dogs Being Reactive
Dogs can often react aggressively when they are anxious. A fearful dog often attacks first because they think they are about to be attacked. A well socialised dog will understand they don’t need to react like this and will overcome this fear.
- Gives Your Dog Freedom
Having a well rounded, confident dog gives you the benefit of being able to take it with you wherever you go. Whether it’s on holiday, to the local pub or joining you when visiting friends. Knowing you can trust your dog to behave makes being a dog owner more enjoyable.
Although socialisation can help deter negative behaviour in dogs it doesn’t always stop it completely. Expert dog training is always on hand to help with any behavioural issues you may be experiencing with your dog.
