This is a wonderful way to integrate socially challenged and undersocialized dogs into our pack. Our Supportive Shadow Socialization Program gives dogs the opportunity to practice more appropriate social skills with the help of a whole pack of well adjusted dogs under the direct supervision and guidance of an experienced dog trainer. The dogs learn what to do from each other and they learn respect for the rules and boundaries of the play yards from their handler. This program helps dogs to develop the social skills needed to have a more enjoyable experience where they can learn to let go of trying to control space around other dogs and become relaxed enough to play, socialize, and simply co-exist more comfortably in the company of other dogs in the daycare and boarding environment. If your dog does not appear ready to integrate after socialization, additional training may be necessary. The Socialization Program does not include lessons with the owner.
