Early puppy socialization cuts down on aggressive behavior later in life. Dogs who have been exposed to a variety of other canines and stimuli when young are more accepting and less likely to become overly aggressive as an adult.

Dog aggression manifests for a variety of reasons. Often it is the nature of the dog's breed to dislike other dogs. Also, some dogs who are not neutered or spayed become aggressive no matter how much early socialization the animal has experienced. However, with small and medium-sized canines aggression often occurs due to a lack of early puppyhood socialization.
