Lucy is a happy Labradoodle puppy almost 4 month old.

 Labradoodle Lucy

Lucy

I first spoke with Lucy’s Mom about her training a few weeks ago. At that time Lucy was having all of the vaccinations she needed, appropriate for her age.

Young puppies do gain some immunity through their mother’s milk. Also, a traditional series of puppy vaccinations is administrated over several months.

If a puppy isn’t socialized until after it receives all its vaccinations, then it misses its chance for early socialization. Puppy’s day care and training lets pups sort it out for themselves, under the watchful eye of a trainer. Many owners aren’t prepared for the rough play and rank testing in which puppies indulge. By observing the pup’s owners get used to the idea of letting dogs greet each other without their interference. As part of puppy play sessions, puppies that get too rough can be given time-outs to help them learn better self-control. Shy puppies need to be protected from hyper ones, but they should be allowed to make their own advances as much as possible.

It is very important for puppy owners to learn how to meet other people with dogs:

  1. You should ask the other owner if it is OK for the dogs may greet each other
  2. You should keep your dog leash slack to avoid interfering during the meeting.
