How to socialize a puppy

All animals that come into your house need socialization for their emotional well-being, and for being part of the family, especially if there are other animals in the house.

One reason for socializing any animal you are considering adding to your family is to build trust between the animal and the family, also establishing an authority chain order.

Another part of socializing is training your puppy in the basic obedience commands.

  1. Sit
  2. Stay
  3. Come
  4. Heel
  5. Down
  6. Leave it
  7. No
  8. Off

Dogs need exercise, and leash training. Walks using leashes in your yard is one of the best ways to leash train a dog because they are comfortable in their own space.

If you have other dogs in the home, walking them on a leash with the new dog or puppy is a good way for the new dog to learn from the trained dog in the home how to behave on a leash, they should never pull hard on the leash.

Train your dog(s) never to leave a vehicle until you have their leash in your hand and ask them to come. This will stop them from jumping out and running around instead of being under your control.

If you already have a dog obedience trained, the new dog will pick up the habits of the dog already obedience trained dog in the home. If there is not a dog in the home, practice patience, never yell or strike the dog, instead, use positive reinforcement with praise for a command performed correctly.

Socializing a dog also includes playing with the dog, and not forgetting to play with the dog in the home, and watching how multiple dogs play together. See how multiple dogs react during feeding time, as some dogs may be food aggressive. If a dog is food aggressive, try separating them and see if that fixes the problem.

Dogs need sufficient cool water and shade on hot days, and their area cleaned regularly.

Unicorns do exist

Many people don’t believe in Unicorns and think they are only in fantasy stories.

There is an animal called the Unicorn of the sea; this animal is the Narwhal, or Narwhale is a small arctic whale with a single ivory spiral tusk protruding from what looks like its head.

Could it be that the Narwhal is a Unicorn from the past, and made its ways into the water as a way of saving itself from becoming extinct? Is there anyone who studied Narwhals to find out?

Writers had to come up with the ideas for their stories from something they’ve seen or heard about. Writers in the past were friends of scientists, or would talk with scientists, to get information about the Science Fiction stories they wrote, in some cases, writers were scientists.

Has anyone ever delved into folklore and found that Unicorns are mythical only? There is no study found on the internet that says anyone has.

Do some research on the Narwhal and see what you can find. Start at the library to see what you can find, then come home and do an internet search for mammals, specifically the Narwhal to see what you can find.

Maybe you can write a paper about the Narwhal for school. Maybe you can write a story about Narwhals.

It’s fun learning new things about animals the inhabit the earth we all live on and see what we can find out about them.
