Appendix: Socialization Table

The more positive experiences your puppy will have with humans, animals, objects, and noises, the less fearful he will be and the more stable his personality will be. Add a reward to any new encounter in the first few months of your dog’s life. Pay special attention to socialize puppies to babies and small children.
