Socializing a dog requires exposing and desensitizing it to the sights, sounds, places and people it will encounter in everyday life. While typical group classes provide a start to socialization, they usually are not comprehensive enough to produce a well-adjusted dog. FetchMasters will help you thoroughly and realistically socialize your dog.
Our Real-World Socialization program consists of four field trips in which your dog will be exposed to many common stimuli. We also will teach you how to react to various stimuli, as dogs pay very close attention to the cues we give them. You also will learn to communicate effectively with passers-by about how to safely interact with your dog.
This program is not suitable for dogs who are aggressive or overly fearful. However, it may be useful after such dogs receive behavior modification treatment.
Our Real-World Socialization program is offered in a private lesson format or in a semi-private group class setting.
Duration: 4 weeks (approximately one class per week)
