puppy-classAccording to the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB) “The primary and most important time for puppy socialization is the first three months of life. For this reason, the AVSAB believes that it should be the standard of care for puppies to receive such socialization before they are fully vaccinated. Dogs are always learning, this is an opportunity to build a positive foundation for learning.”
