Just like with people, when dogs receive a healthy balance of physical and mental stimulation, they will be happy and well-adjusted. Your dog wakes up each morning with a certain amount of physical and mental energy that he or she needs to expend to feel happy, occupied, and balanced. What your dog needs will be different from other dogs; breed, age, size, and individual temperament all contribute to this, as does your dog's mood on any given day.
Dogs that don't receive adequate stimulation for their bodies and their brains might be restless, destructive, hard to train, and even in the worst cases, aggressive and irritable.
According to The Association of Professional Dog Trainers, socialization is important to the overall well-being of your dog because it will provide him with the ability to develop skills to cope with new experiences in a positive way, therefore reducing your dog's stress.
What is Socialization?
Socialization is the process of exposing dogs to new environments and situations. It helps them to feel more comfortable when encountering new things, animals, people and experiences. Socialization is especially important during puppyhood with the first critical socialization time at eight-twelve weeks of age.
Socialized pups are typically happier, friendlier, more predictable and able to handle stress better. Under-socialized pups often grow to become fearful, shy, anxious, and sometimes even fearfully-aggressive adult dogs because they lack the skills to cope with new situations. Socialization should not end with puppyhood but is more of a lifetime journey. Though the foundation for your dog's behavior is laid during the first few months.
Responsible pet owners reinforce social skills and continually expose their dog to new social experiences throughout the dog's entire life.
