But, My Puppy's Not Fully Vaccinated!

Did you know that you can start socializing your puppy before vaccines are finished? In fact, it's critical! Learn how to socialize your puppy safely.

It's a common misconception that you have to wait until your puppy is fully vaccinated to start socializing. Unfortunately, that's just not true. Learn how you can start the socialization process long before your puppy finishes their vaccines and how you can do it without risking your puppy's health.

As a Certified Professional Dog Trainer I've worked with THOUSANDS of new pet parents.
I've been training puppies and teaching group puppy classes for puppies as young as
8 weeks of age for over 20 years! I've also seen first hand the damage done by a
lack of early socialization - fear, aggression, anxiety.

You were told you can't take your puppy outside until fully vaccinated.

You were told that your puppy couldn't be around other dogs until fully vaccinated.

You were told to keep your puppy isolated until fully vaccinated.

Now, your worried that your new puppy will grow up fearful of new people, things,
dogs and situations! You should be!

What if I told you there was a program to help you safely socialize your puppy
BEFORE they were fully vaccinated??
