Adult dogs who missed out on socialization can be helped, but it has to be done right. Here’s the intel on how to most effectively—and kindly—teach your dog that the world isn’t such a scary place.
Did your dog miss out on socialization during her critical early months? Maybe you were advised to keep your puppy isolated for health reasons, or your work schedule had you so swamped that nothing went according to plan, or you adopted an adult dog who didn’t get off to the best start in life for who-knows-what-reason. No matter how your dog wound up with a socialization deficit, there’s a good chance you consulted Dr. Google and had the living daylights scared out of you regarding her prospects for happiness.
I’m here to tell you there’s no reason for all that gloom and doom. There are things you can do instead throwing your hands up in despair.
Don’t panic. All is not…
