Loe lรคbi, eriti kui puutud kokku noorte koertega ๐Ÿ˜‰Okay, so this is a word that gets an awful lot of play in the training world, and itโ€™s definition has come to mean an awful lot of things. Many of which, are incredibly counter-productive, if not downright dangerous.

So letโ€™s see if we canโ€™t clarify a few things.

Socialization isnโ€™t:
-About letting your dog freely interact with dogs at the dog park, day care, or with friends dogs.
-About allowing your dog to meet other dogs on-leash.
-About allowing all manner of people, in all manner of mental/emotional states interact/pet/pressure your dog.
-About exposing your dog to the sights and sounds of cars, buses, motorcycles, bikes, skateboards, joggers...and allowing them to freak out, panic, aggress, hide, bark etc.
-About exposing your dog to the sights and sounds of dogs, cats, and other animals, and allowing them to freak out, aggress, lunge, bark, growl etc.

Socialization is:
-About teaching your dog the proper responses to dogs. What is and isnโ€™t appropriate behavior, and correcting the unwanted when it appears.
-About teaching your dog to walk by the barking, lunging dog(s) on walks and ignore them, completely. Correcting if necessary to achieve this result.
-About advocating for your dog and ensuring people arenโ€™t allowed to pressure your dog, by touching, crouching down, attempting โ€œkissesโ€ etc. That means being a big boy or girl, and stopping others from engaging in unwanted, uninvited interactions.
-About exposing your dog to all manner of daily life โ€œthingsโ€ and ensuring a proper response. If aggression/arousal is present, itโ€™s corrected, if fear/arousal is present (and causes an overreaction/fleeing etc.) itโ€™s corrected. Ask your dog to learn to ignore and not care about these โ€œlifeโ€ distractions/concerns/temptations. Teach them to listen to the training, not the world around them.
-About teaching your dog to leave other creatures alone. The cat, the bird, the cow, the goat, the other dog, is simply none of their business. If they decide those things are their business, itโ€™s your job to correct and clarify what is and isnโ€™t their business for them.

Socialization has become a ridiculously simplified, dumbed down, all-encompassing idea. Free interaction and exposure have been presented as a panacea, the magic gateway to a balanced dog. Thatโ€™s a whole lot of B.S. youโ€™ve been sold, by a lot of people full of B.S. ๐Ÿ™‚

Socialization is all about teaching your dog how to behave and exist in the world...properly. People have a belief that only interactions create a well socialized dog. They donโ€™t understand that existence is almost always preferable, and more valuable than actual interaction. Yes exposure is critical, but exposure without 100% clear guidance, and corrections for poor choices, isnโ€™t socialization, itโ€™s chaos, and itโ€™s not teaching your dog whatโ€™s right, whatโ€™s wrong, and that youโ€™ll keep them safe, so they donโ€™t have to.

A well socialized dog isnโ€™t fazed by the world around them. And that doesnโ€™t come from simple exposure and interactions without guidance. Ironically, thatโ€™s precisely how you create anti-social dogs.

Think on that for a minute.

Oi, kui ilusa jumega tüdruk!

Oi kui kena ja no see värv…๐Ÿคค๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

A little bit more than 19 years ago I took my very first dog to retriever qualification test (NOU) in Finland, Hauho, judged by Vesa Hietikko. We had been training a while, but I had no previous experience nor a clear idea what would wait us at the test. Luckily Dolly was very independent (and stubborn AF ๐Ÿคฆ) and passed the test with flying colors, being the only one to solve the track.

So I allow myself to be a little bit emotional announcing that last Friday 24.09.2021 ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ ๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ญ-๐ ๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ญ-๐ ๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ญ-๐ ๐ซ๐š๐ง๐๐œ๐ก๐ข๐ฅ๐๐ซ๐ž๐ง of Dolly passed the retriever qualification test in Saarjรคrve, judged by Vesa Turunen.
MY BRAND VAN DAMME โ€žRufusโ€œ & Eliko - qualified in the field!

Also many congratulations to

My little flying dog was running her socks off and finished the search (5 birds in reeds and land) in 8 minutes. Her speed at the track made me cross my eyes and pray, but luckily she didnโ€™t let her legs overrun her nose and returned soon with nice furry I prize.

Huge humble thanks to Tatjana @ Retrievers school Baltic Paws for coaching!
