As many headlines have shared, pet adoption has been on the rise during widespread stay at home orders across America. As everyone spends more time at home and socially distancing, many have sought the comfort and distraction of a warm four-legged companion to help them weather the anxiety and stress of these uncertain times. While a new furry addition can ease tensions and provide encouragement for a more structured day, there are important factors to keep in mind regarding your new pet; especially if they are a new puppy.

Early socialization is very important. Keeping your puppy too isolated with you can lead to behavioral issues such as aggression, or fear when it comes to new people or new settings. Thorough puppy socialization helps your puppy adapt to the world in a way that pays off for the rest of their life. As a critical step in your puppy’s development, allowing your puppy to have a variety of positive experiences out in the real world ensures that they have the behavioral tools to happily adjust to any adventures that may arise.
