February 2023 topic:

What do we really know about socialization? A review of the science.

Socialize those puppies! The critical period of socialization is 6 – 12 weeks. Right?? Many of our recommendations about socialization are based on a handful of studies that were written up by Scott and Fuller over 60 years ago—in a lab. Is this really the best we have? What have we learned about socialization since then? This month will explore a recent scientific overview of the research on socialization that has been done so far. We’ll discuss what conclusions we can draw, what we do and don’t know, and what areas still need further research. Join us for the February Research Bites and bring yourself up-to-speed on the latest evidence-based recommendations for socialization in dogs.
