Tips To Socialise Your New Puppy The Right Way

1.  Socialise With People

Take your puppy to a place where there are lots of animal lovers.  I usually take new puppies to the horse yard, dog park or a pet shop.  Don't be afraid to ask people to stop and pet your puppy.  You are looking for your puppy to be used to meeting new people on the lead so he is happy to see people but not overly excited.

2.  Socialise With Dogs

Again, take your puppy to places to where you know that there will be other dogs.  You are looking for your puppy to walk up to new dogs calmly and sniff them.  You will probably find that older dogs will teach your puppy how to act towards dogs.  Just be sure to show your puppy well behaved, gentle dogs.

3.  Car

This is something a lot of people forget about and it ends up with a barking dog in the car.  Ask friends, family and strangers to come up to your car and reach into pet the puppy.  This stops car aggression that can sometimes happen in dogs that haven't been socialised in a car.

4.  At Home

When you have your puppy at home it is important to get people to come to your house.  I try to get the postman to come and pet the puppy, get someone to walk into the garden where the puppy is and pet him and take people into the house to sit down and talk while the puppy is next to us.


I am not any type of animal expert but instead only an animal lover who wants to share her tips.  Please consult relevant animal specialists and do not only take my advice.
