The best thing you can ever do for your dog is socialize him or her. Plain and simple.
If you’re getting a new puppy, you have an advantage in this respect. The socialization window for a puppy is about 3 – 5 months. During this time, puppies are like welcoming sponges. They need to be inundated with all sorts of things, particularly people. Whatever they experience during that time, they will most likely welcome for the rest of their lives.
Make sure to expose your puppy to people of all color and sizes, especially small children. Later in life, dogs can be disconcerted by children because they are oddly small and foreign to them if they weren’t exposed early.
Make sure to expose your dog to people in hats as well. And don’t forget other dogs.
Even if your puppy is older than that, taking them to the dog park or pet friendly stores is vital. Stores in Little Rock and North Little Rock that are dog friendly include: Petsmart, Petco, Gander Mountain, Tractor Supply.
Dogs learn much better from other dogs than they do from people. So if you’re have some minor behavior issues, getting your dog to the dog park can help solve that.
