Welcome to week one of Fenrir’s 12 Week Challenge! This is your first step in understanding your dog a little better, and it’s your first step in being able to enjoy life with them to the fullest.
This week we will be covering socialisation.
In its simplest form, socialisation is exposing your dog to new dogs, people, and situations at an early age, so they’re comfortable with a variety of scenarios.
Ideally, you start this as soon as possible. Puppies socialise best between 3 and 14 weeks of age.
What if you have an older dog?
Fear not! It’s never too late to start the process with your dog. The sooner the better, but not all is lost. An older dog can still be socialised. It may just take them a little longer.
We’ll walk you through everything you need to know about socialisation. This guide will go over the importance and the “how to” you need to succeed.
