Don't underestimate the importance of socialization and habituation for your puppy from birth, but most certainly from the moment you get him/her! When it comes to training, you get out what you put in. So, the way we see it... we teach you how to teach your puppy!
Socialization involves making your dog comfortable with a variety of other dogs, people and circumstances and Habituation is a simple form of learning, in which your dog, after a period of exposure to a stimulus, stops responding. Kind of like with the sound of thunder or vacuum cleaners.
Keep in mind, the everyday things that you do and even those things that you don't do, will certainly affect your puppy into adulthood.
Our Puppy Social Training Program gives you access to all the tools you need to get your puppy on the right path to being a model citizen! Maybe even an AKC Canine Good Citizen! GoodFellas Puppy Social qualifies as an AKC S.T.A.R. puppy program which is designed to get owners and their puppies off to a good start.
S.T.A.R. Socialization - Training - Activity - Responsibility
