FACT: Proper Socialization is probably the single most important thing an owner can do to guard against the most serious behavior problem there is – aggression. Dogs who bite are frequently banished to the backyard, re-homed, taken to a shelter or euthanized. Therefore, proper socialization can mean the difference between life and death for a dog. Dogs who bite are much more likely to be euthanized than a dog who doesn’t heel or sit well.
