Dog socialization almost starts from birth, when bitches begin to teach puppies what they can and cannot do. If they violate the rules, she will correct them immediately; if they go too far, she will bring them back.
If all goes well, when these puppies grow longer, they will know their position in that dog, respect other dogs with higher positions, and guide dogs with lower positions.
all the best. However, in many cases, when humans adopt a very young puppy (twelve weeks is not uncommon), they cannot continue to learn bitches because they have not formulated the rules, boundaries, and restrictions that all dogs need to socialize.
Even if dogs are adopted after or in adulthood, if humans do not establish rules for new dogs, that dog does not know how to behave.
Respect their fellow members, dogs who know their position among their peers and follow the rules are Social dogs. When the dog is anti-social, it will cause various problems. So, how to tell if your dog has socialized? Here are some considerations.
Disrespect for space
A social dog knows his position in the backpack, but an anti-social dog does not. One way this dog manifests itself is to disrespect other people or animals, especially those that bring their own animals. This is a dog that prompts people to beg for food during mealtimes, or attempts to “crowd people or other animals by hovering or pushing behind them. They may also try to lift the guest’s legs or jump into any entering the house People, thus causing embarrassment to their people. solution: The person in the backpack must occupy their own space and correct the dog consistently to set the limit. This means that the dog will be physically blocked or pushed away when trying to invade.
Showing excessive excitement
For humans, it is easy to see a dog go crazy because of spinning, barking, and jumping, just like seeing us back home, but this is not what happened from the dog’s perspective. The behavior of an over-excited dog is because she has no rules on where to go or what to do in certain situations, so all of this energy can be expressed randomly through physical means. And when the dog’s body is so excited, it is impossible to reach the dog’s mind to calm her down. solution: Excessively excited dogs need a lot of exercises to consume excess energy, but people in backpacks also need to stop rewarding this excitement. If you don’t want your dog to jump and spin every time you go home, you need to ignore it when it’s in that state. The dog will not bring it in person; she will learn that excessive excitement will not pay off.
Pull or stab on foot
As the pack leader, we should always be the leader in walking, but this is not always the case. One of the most common problems that Cesar deals with is the dog being pulled by the dog or the behaving dog when they see another dog Or someone suddenly dashed while walking. In this case, the dog did not get the leader’s help from the person at the other end of the leash, so he naturally walked ahead because each dog has a leader. solution: The person at the end of the leash should learn to be calm and confident, not to let the dog stand in front, and how not to react to things in the environment that may excite the dog.

Avoid other dogs or people
At the other end of the spectrum is a dog trying to avoid everyone, or at least avoid unfamiliar people or animals. These dogs will naturally be happy on the back of the backpack, where they are protected by the rest of the backpack members, but for some reason, they feel as if they have been pushed into the backpack, and their reaction is to avoid that not everyone escapes a certain one Dogs are dogs that are antisocial. For example, if there is a loud, unfamiliar sound (such as fireworks or thunder), a normally calm and happy dog may suddenly hide under the bed. However, whenever something new happens, the dog doing so will exhibit anti-social behavior. solution: Aggressive dogs may be more difficult to recover than aggressive dogs, but it all starts when dogs learn to trust you as their backpack leader. And, despite all the difficulties, if you are the leader of a timid dog’s backpack, you may have to force yourself to ignore the dog temporarily and practice “do not touch, talk, or make eye contact” until the dog feels comfortable approaching you until. space.
