Learning How to Woof!

Socialising your four-legged companion may not include a visit to your nearest coffee shop, but the right company early on can mean a better behaved canine

CHENNAI: Socialising is an essential life skill that every puppy should be introduced to, not only to teach good manners, but also the most important survival skills. Socialising a puppy with the right dogs and humans will lay the foundation of how he or she will behave as they grow up. Our Benzi and Cheeky have helped many pups and dogs become social butterflies of the doggy world.  Mowgli was one of them. Now all grown up and confidently playing the role of youngest kid at his new home, Mowgli was a two-and-a-half month old trembling, frothing ball of fur who would shiver at the sight of any human or dog. All it took was the right approach, lots of love and Benzi and Cheeky’s pawsome experience to turn him into the most confident, playful and happy puppy around. A few things should be kept in mind while trying to achieve this.

A correctly socialised puppy will grow up to be a happy, friendly, and safer dog. And that’s what we call a ‘woofing success!’
