In order for a puppy to grow up into a balanced dog, she needs to be socialized from early on so she can learn the rules of how to be a dog. Our best teachers for that job are… other adult dogs, but it’s not a good idea to toss a puppy in with the grown-ups and walk away.

Andre Millan pays a visit to Dog Psychology Center trainer Todd Langston for a live demonstration of two adult dogs with very different temperaments meeting a puppy for the first time, and how they negotiate space, and teach the new dog the rules, boundaries, and limitations.

For the dogs, this is a socialization exercise. For us, it’s a lesson in the language of dogs and how they really communicate with each other.
