Puppy training and socialization schedule
Updated: Jul 11, 2019
Here is our suggested schedule for minimum training and socialization for your puppy. If you are an overachiever, there’s a whole world of things you can do with your dog, so if you are an A-type personality, use this as a stepping stone and not necessarily an end goal.
We would like to remind any overachievers that while socialization and training are important, your puppy is still a baby and you should not expect too much, push your puppy, or over train. One of the most important things you can do is to let your puppy be a puppy. For an 8 to 12 week old puppy, that means training sessions should be short. You can take a longer puppy class once or twice a week, and we encourage this, but daily training should be short and fun, usually no more than 5 minutes for a young puppy, and gradually increasing as your puppy grows.
