Loe läbi, eriti kui puutud kokku noorte koertega 😉Okay, so this is a word that gets an awful lot of play in the training world, and it’s definition has come to mean an awful lot of things. Many of which, are incredibly counter-productive, if not downright dangerous.

So let’s see if we can’t clarify a few things.

Socialization isn’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 isn’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 aren’t allowed to pressure your dog, by touching, crouching down, attempting “kisses” 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 “things” and ensuring a proper response. If aggression/arousal is present, it’s corrected, if fear/arousal is present (and causes an overreaction/fleeing etc.) it’s corrected. Ask your dog to learn to ignore and not care about these “life” 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, it’s your job to correct and clarify what is and isn’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. That’s a whole lot of B.S. you’ve been sold, by a lot of people full of B.S. 🙂

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 don’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, isn’t socialization, it’s chaos, and it’s not teaching your dog what’s right, what’s wrong, and that you’ll keep them safe, so they don’t have to.

A well socialized dog isn’t fazed by the world around them. And that doesn’t come from simple exposure and interactions without guidance. Ironically, that’s precisely how you create anti-social dogs.

Think on that for a minute.

We are back from the 𝐫𝐞𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐬 and 𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 in Pärnu, organized by @Eesti Kuldsete Retriiverite Tõuühing. It was five days full of interesting tests, great trainings and lots of happy wagging tails.
My two girls made my heart sing, they were happy to work and did their best to understand what was asked of them. Any mistakes I proudly own myself 😜.
9.10.2021 WT, judged by Martin Incédi and Irina Sokolova, thank you for interesting and challenging tests!
* 𝐌𝐘 𝐁𝐑𝐀𝐍𝐃 𝐋𝐀𝐒𝐓 𝐌𝐈𝐍𝐔𝐓𝐄 𝐃𝐄𝐋𝐈𝐕𝐄𝐑𝐘 "Lilli" - 62 points, 𝗳𝗶𝗿𝘀𝘁 𝗽𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲 and III place in beginners class.

Oi, kui ilusa jumega tüdruk!

Oi kui kena ja no see värv…🤤😍😍😍

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 🤦) 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 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭-𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭-𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭-𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐧 of Dolly passed the retriever qualification test in Saarjärve, judged by Vesa Turunen.
MY BRAND VAN DAMME „Rufus“ & Eliko - qualified in the field!
MY BRAND VANESSA „Murka“ & Kadri – qualified in the field!

Also many congratulations to
MY BRAND CHERRY BLOSSOM „Alma“ & Ave – qualified in the field!
CHEYA’S NIGHT RIDER „Rocco“ & Kristjan – qualified in the field!

Congratulations!

❤️❤️❤️ Thanks to everyone, for a wonderful atmosphere and team feeling at the retriever tests in Jõgevamaa this weekend! I hope to meet you all soon! It was fun to see the qualification tests on Friday and to participate in NOME-B on following days.

Thank you, judges Vesa Turunen and Ari-Pekka Fontell, for great exercises and your advise!

Eliko, you’ve done amazing job with Blue, congratulations!

🦆 MY BRAND SOUL SISTER „Missy“ - 1st Prize in Beginners Class.

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 didn’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!

More results later 😉
