Socialization
The most important aspect of puppy raising is socialization! The contract requires that puppy raisers introduce their puppy to at least one new place or experience each week, but more is greatly encouraged! A new experience might mean taking your service puppy in training to a new place, like a new grocery stores, restaurant, movie theater, museum (or many more ideas) on their quest to become a service dog. Important new experiences also might include meeting tall people, short people, people in uniforms, and most importantly LOTS OF KIDDOS! Other valuable experiences might be hearing an emergency siren, listening to a voice over an intercom, hearing musical instruments, seeing a forklift work, watching kids on a playground, seeing a parade with costumed characters. All of these new and unique experiences build a foundation of comfort and confidence for a growing service puppy and are necessary to their development. Please refer to your list of experiences for ideas on new places and things to do with your puppy.

Remember that new experiences (meeting a person in a wheelchair) may happen at locations you have already visited (a favorite restaurant). This section is to help you identify both the new experiences and locations that you have visited and experienced each week with your puppy.
