Intro to Savvy Socialization


Despite widespread information on the importance of and how to socialize puppies, research shows we have growing numbers of fearful dogs in our world. Many point the finger at owners and breeders but in this class we’ll discuss why “socialization by to-do list” is failing. Then we’ll introduce Savvy Socialization, a new approach to puppy socialization that completely changes those early months of our puppies’ lives. Savvy Socialization is easy for breeders and owners to do so we can all raise mentally stable, sound puppies to become the dogs of our dreams. Join us in this online class to take your socialization beyond the to-do list!

This online class is included in our Avidog Breeder College Platinum & Platinum Plus membership.

3. We’ll open the webinar room about 5 minutes prior to the start of the webinar so we can all check our computers, audio and video. But don’t worry if you arrive late, you can still join in.

You will be muted during the presentation but we’ll have a live question and answer (Q&A) session at the end of the webinar and sometimes in the middle. If you have a webcam, you can leave your video on or off during the presentation.
