Socializing a City Puppy

Some people don’t give their city pups the right amount of socialization because they are worried about them catching a disease. However, what we can do as pet owners is balance the need for socialization with the risk of disease. By controlling the conditions, you are minimizing risk.

Our job as City pup owners is to expose our pup to as many different city experiences as possible to ensure that as our dog grows, they are happy in their new surroundings.

Low risk experiences you can try with your pup

Constantly reinforcing positive experiences is important for behavioural development as your pup continues to adulthood.

Exposing a puppy from a young age to the sights and sounds of the City lessons the risk of fear of noises or vehicles (such as buses ). Having a dog that is used to crowds from a young age makes City life so much easier.
