When it comes to socializing your puppy, the first few weeks of your Yorkie Poo puppy’s life are incredibly important. Not only is this when you will establish a bond with him; but it is also when he is the most impressionable. Socializing your puppy is essential for puppies when they are young; because the experiences they have during this impressionable period will determine who they are as an adult. In this article, you'll learn some tips when it comes to socializing your puppy
If your puppy isn’t properly socialized, he might turn into a shy and timid adult dog who responds to new people; and unfamiliar situations with fear or uncertainty instead of normal curiosity. Fortunately, socialization for Yorkie Poo dogs is easy to grasp.
Here are some tips on how to socialize your dog so that it’ll feel confident and at ease with others:
