About OurSocializationDog Training

Socialization with dogs, humans, and other animals is a great way to ensure a well-mannered and confident dog. The best time to socialize is between 10-16 weeks of age, but not all dogs get to experience socialization as a puppy. A lot of rescue dogs enter their new homes without proper socialization, which can put stress on both the dog and the owner.

Below are signs that your dog may need extra socialization:

  • Fearful around people or other animals
  • Nervous when out on walks
  • Shy or overly excited around people or other dogs
  • Aggressive towards other dogs
  • Tail tucked between the legs

A dog with improper socialization runs the risk of becoming fearful or aggressive. Contact us today to see how we can help!

Training was excellent and all that I had hoped for for our white shephard. She has become a perfect family dog. I questioned if that was possible prior to training. Thank you Sit Means Sit for your help!

The entire staff at SMS was very professional and great to work with. We brought Kida, our 7 month old catahoula/boarder collie, to them with the goal of learning recall and leash skills. She used to have some trouble with focusing on commands. After her week of training, she has a new calmness and has embraced learning new commands. This new lifestyle has been an incredible improvement to our day to day adventures!!
