Have you ever considered what it is like being a dog in your home? We all live busy lives and have jobs and responsibilities and sometimes not much time for much else...Consider the life of your dog. Sure they hopefully have a comfortable place to nap, plenty of food to eat and maybe a fenced yard to visit when they relieve themselves or just want to be outside. Do they wait eagerly for you to return home everyday from work? Maybe a quick hello as you start dinner or do chores. Then maybe a couple hours of down time before bed, rinse and repeat, day in day out. Unless you are the type that is very good about grabbing that leash and getting out for a walk or taking hikes on the weekends with your fur baby, your dog's life maybe incredibly boring!
Truth is your pup has a very short life span and before you know it, it's time to say goodbye. Is your dog's life filled with new experiences and adventures or are you just providing a 5 star prison for your pet? Sound harsh? Maybe, but it is true. Think for a minute about turning off your Cellphone, TV, Radio and sit in complete silence for hours only being allowed to pace the house...you will find this experience uncomfortable after a short while because we require stimulation and variety to feel content. Without new experiences and variety life has little meaning. This is true for your dog too! Consider a walk in a new place, a trip to the Doggy Daycare or dog park or a weekend hike in a state park. Your dog will love you for it!

Socialization for puppies is essential to their mental stability. Socialization starting early on with people and later when your pup is finished with vaccinations, with other dogs is vital for you dog to be well adjusted. Some dogs that are not properly socialized become mistrustful of people and can exhibit fear aggression around strangers and in some cases cause them to be over protective of their owner, and sometimes a contributing factor in developing aggression towards other dogs. Here are some places you may not have known that you can take your puppy to expose them to new people and enviornments. Be careful not to force a greeting upon your pup if he/she is aprehensive . Use treats to hand to a stranger to make meeting them a rewarding experience for your pup.
