Here’s How a Puppy Trainer in Las Vegas Helps Dogs Socialize Well

Sure, it’s loads of fun to spending time with your dog and family. However, it’s also important to remember that dogs are pack animals. While your family may serve as a sort of “pack”, your dog can benefit from socializing with other dogs. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and intimidated about socializing your dog, you’re not alone. Here’s tips and advice from your trainer that can lead your dog to playing well with others.

Start on Neutral Ground

When you introduce two dogs on territory that is more familiar to one dog (like that dog’s back yard), you give a territorial advantage to that dog. The other dog then tends to feel insecure and can act out. It’s best to find neutral places where you can introduce the dogs, like a park or a nearby nature trail. When dogs have the chance to meet and interact without worrying about territory, they tend to get along better.

Start with a Training Foundation 

It’s also helpful to have your dog interact with others while it’s still young, but also after he’s trained. Dog trainers know that a good foundation of dog obedience training in Las Vegas can help dogs to interact better with other dogs. An obedience training foundation means your dog will obey your commands if you need to call him or her back to you or stop it from doing something that is bothering another dog. Bringing two well-trained dogs together ensures that both dogs know to obey their owners and can exhibit healthy boundaries with each other.

Consider Your Dog’s Likes and Dislikes

When you are deciding who to introduce your dog to, it helps to pick a dog who compliments your dog. This means you’ll want to pick a dog of similar size to your dog. It also means you’ll want a dog that has a complementary temperament to your dog’s. If your dog is very anxious, putting him around another anxious dog may raise stress levels. You’ll want to pick a calm companion for your dog to prep your pooch for success.
