Bob was introduced to other pups ranging in age from 2-5 months. Classes are held every Monday night at Bow River Veterinary Clinic from 6:00 to 7:00PM and focus on socialization, dog-dog and dog-people. Bow Valley SPCA volunteers facilitate the classes educating human companions on the importance of socialization; as well as learning the importance of bite inhibition development. Bob is well socialized after spending 10 weeks with his 10 siblings under the care of staff and volunteers at Bow Valley SPCA. His socialization will continue as he meets new play mates and people each week.
