Puppy Socialization

This training program is for puppies 16 weeks & under at the time of booking. What Fido experiences during the first 20 weeks of life will lay the foundation for their future behaviour. Raising Fido Dog Training provides safe, efficient, properly executed socialization experiences that can have a profound impact on the development of a desirable companion dog. This program is a must for the discerning puppy parent who desires a social, interactive, and relaxed adult dog who will be comfortable and friendly in a variety of situations.

It is the position of the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behaviour that the standard of care for puppies includes enjoyable exposure to as many new experiences, environments, people, objects, sounds, surfaces, and other animals as can be safely achieved regardless of whether or not they are fully vaccinated as the benefits outweigh the risks when done safely.
