What is "socialization" and why is it important?
Socialization means learning to be apart of human society, a society that many dogs find bizarre without proper acclimation. Without puppy class your pup will never become truly socialized to the world around them. There is a big difference between "socialization" and "exposure," and our aim is to make sure your pup receives wholesome, positive based experiences that set them up for the real world.
