How To Decide If A Dog Is Well Socialized

Socialization is a very important part of a dog’s life. This process plays an important role in the development of its personality, character and behavior.
How to determine if a dog is well socialized

It is not only important for a dog to be well socialized, but it is also important that you can recognize both when a dog is and when it is not. For that reason, we thought you might like some tips on the subject. In this way, you can analyze and assess your knowledge of “parenting”.

Embossing is a socialization process that defines both the dog’s personality and behavior. It should start when a dog is still very young. A well-socialized puppy grows up and becomes a well-adjusted adult without behavioral problems of any kind.

Embossing leads to a well-socialized dog

Well-socialized dogs fulfill their natural process of imprinting. Immediately after birth, the puppies should be with their mother and siblings for at least two months. This turns them into individuals who can become good family members. It is at this stage that they learn about, and accept, that there is a hierarchy within their social group.

After the embossing process, the dog should get along with other dogs and also have no problem interacting with other members of its species as an adult. But how do you know if a puppy has completed this imprint?

When you meet a puppy that you are considering adopting, you should observe and analyze its behavior carefully so that you can determine the quality of its imprint. A puppy with a healthy embossing process will not be afraid of you, but it will come to you and be ready to play. It will act in exactly the same way with everyone else.

A shy, scared and too quiet puppy has probably not had a good impression. It was probably separated from its mother prematurely and may have behavioral problems at a later stage of life.

Adaptation to the human family

A dog usually has no problem getting used to his new home, food, bed, etc. However, if the dog feels uncomfortable, it may mean that it is not well socialized. Dogs are social beings and should easily adapt to different family members, whether they are adults or children.

An innate interest in integrating into the “herd” is a sign that your new dog is well socialized.

Adapts well to others

A well-socialized dog will not only adapt to his family, but also to other people. It’s always a little weird when a dog is loving his family but then growls or even tries to attack other people. Unfortunately, this can cause legal problems in the future.

A dog without trauma will be nice and friendly to all people, no matter how often they socialize.

Plays nicely with other animals

When it comes to relationships with other animals, well-socialized dogs will get along with them regardless of species. They will not growl or try to attack another animal, instead they will try to play and be part of that group, just as their genes force them to.

They should also not have problems interacting with other animals. If your dog gets along with your family and other people, but not with other animals, the dog may have socialization problems.

They will not experience separation anxiety

It is normal for your dog to want to be with you all the time and even be a little sad when you have to leave him at home. But sometimes your absence leads to extreme, destructive or annoying behavior. These can include compulsive barking, the dog breaking things or constantly tearing on doors and so on. These are sure signs that your dog is suffering from separation anxiety.

Separation anxiety is usually the result of poor socialization. For this reason, it is best to get advice from a veterinarian or a trainer on how to correct it. If they think the dog needs more than a few simple guidelines and perhaps some medication to calm down, it is very likely that you will need to visit a psychologist or a dog behavior specialist.
