Q & A:

Q: Can I have the puppy meet every dog and person?

 

ANoWe want to teach the puppy to watch new dogs and people from a distance but not have to greet every single person or dog. By practicing ignoring people and dog's, we are teaching them manners we want in the future and preventing reactivity and fearfulness.

 

Q: Why should I not take my puppy everywhere with me?

A: Each puppy is an individual and will have different responses to each new situation and interaction. A certified dog  trainer will be able to observe the puppy's body language to make sure they are not overwhelmed or scared.

Q: Should I not take my puppy outside until they have all of their shots?

A: We will not be taking your puppy to high dog traffic areas such as dog parks, dog stores, and busy parks. They will not be interacting or meeting any dogs at all on our field trips. Puppies should receive a minimum of one set of vaccines at least seven days prior to going on a field trip and a first deworming. (American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior, 2008a).

Q: What is the point of puppy socialization field trips?

A: The critical puppy socialization phase is roughly between 3-16 weeks. During this time it is critical for us to introduce puppies to new environments, interactions, and have them observe common things in the human world at a safe and comfortable distance for your puppy. Proper socialization will increase confidence, help prevent reactivity and fearfulness in new situations.

Q: How will you be transporting my puppy?

A: We will have a crate set-up in the back seat unless your puppy is a great car rider and can sit with dog seat belt attached.
