Socialization starts from 3 weeks to about 3 months of age. It is important that
the socialization process is complete. Puppies want to bond with animals and
their owner by learning that objects, people, and environments are safe. They
also learn what the body cues and signals of others mean. This is the most
important socialization period in a dog's life. Puppies who do not get adequate
socialization during this period tend to be fearful of unfamiliar people, dogs,
sounds, objects and environments.
