Is your puppy using you as a chew toy? Peeing all over your house? Or perhaps he’s an angel but you’ve heard how important early socialization is.

Besides helping you maintain your sanity, early training and socialization is essential to helping your puppy grow into an enjoyable, well-rounded dog. And it can prevent common behavior problems like fear-based aggression and anxiety later in life.

“A good dog is one of the best things of all to be.” -Dean Koontz
