The Necessity of Early Socialization, Dr. Houlihan of the AVMA
Socialization has become a buzz word. People know the word, care about socializing their pet but exactly what does it mean? I talk with Dr. Kendall Houlihan, assistant director of animal welfare about the topic on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show.
Indeed socialization is imperative – and we talk about why that is the case.
Regarding dogs, well-meaning people are “over-socialization,” sometimes flooding, forcing the issue and that does more harm than good.
