Socializing your adolescent dog

Exposing your puppy to new sights and sounds every day is essential to raising a behaviorally healthy dog. Though a dog’s sensitive period of socialization typically ends around 4-5 months old, we recommend continuing to socialize your dog for at least the first year of their life.
