Training To Behave
Puppy socialization also benefits owners because puppies are taught to become more docile and less agitated. Socialization programs aim to expose puppies to strangers with different clothing, for example. This is beneficial when you have guests coming over.
A pup needs to get used to their environment as they grow. Training makes them feel at ease in their new home and prevents them from being too jumpy or fearful. Like people, dogs need a balance of exploration and caution in their lives to healthily go through each day.
Puppies also learn to interact with other dogs as part of their socialization training. You may want to think of puppy training classes as a more intensive and learning-inclined trip to the dog park. Puppies get to interact with other pups and practice social skills.
