Our family dog was socialised from 8 weeks and never had any problems with other dogs or humans. My dog wasn't as well socialised and it really showed; his behaviour was embarrassing and distressing and desperately needed to be corrected. It took much longer to socialise him towards the end of his puppy-hood but it paid off! He is now happy to make new friends whilst we explore our neighbourhood during walks. I dare say that socialising, which can be a bit tricky and requires a lot of consistency and patience, is one of the greatest gifts you can give your dog!
