Controlled exposure builds their confidence and helps them adapt to different situations, reducing anxiety and fear.
Reward good behavior with treats and praise, reinforcing the idea that socializing leads to enjoyable experiences.
Use commands to guide behavior in social settings, reinforcing good manners and ensuring your dog responds appropriately to various stimuli.
This allows your dog to engage in natural social behaviors and learn vital communication skills. Supervise interactions to ensure they remain positive and safe.
Expose them to different sounds, surfaces, and experiences. This helps build resilience and prevents fear or anxiety in unfamiliar environments.
Handling New Situations
