Socialization and manners (SAM) are the springboard to healthy interactions dog-to-dog, and between dogs, children and society. Visit Dog Talk Media YT to view short vignettes of dog in action. Play sessions should be short, supervised and well matched. A supervised/guided learning experience gives pups/dogs an opportunity to safely engage with others. Dogs learn self-control and  how to recognize and practice valuable body language and communications skills.
