While we do not want to discourage a puppy’s inclination to try new things, we do want to let them know the best way to go about it. Let’s explore ways to help our puppies use their mouths appropriately and encourage time to settle.
Socialization is the process of exposing your puppy gently and positively to new experiences, as well as learning to give and take social cues from dogs and people.
