Socialization check list
 
I have noticed a few comments about people "checking things off the list" for socialization. Does anyone have an actual list they use to help guide their puppy socialization? If so I would like to see this list! I have been introducing Charlie to as many things/sounds/people/etc but I am still curious to see if there really is a list people use. Anyone? Thanks in advance!

I haven't seen a list but I can tell you the things we did.
We went to

The Mall
Stores
Parks
met barnyard animals
walk where there's lots of potholes (for the noise)
spent time at rock quarry (noise of trucks getting loaded)
school buses/ kids getting on/off
hang out at the ball field while kids play ball

Basically it's been a year of how many people can we meet and how many new things can we see each day. Bentley passed his CGC test today and when she dropped the bowl he didn't even look in that direction because he's really used to different noises.
Good luck.

I just made this thread into a sticky, since we didn't already have one on this subject. ;)

Wow! So cool! Thanks guys! I knew I couldn't possibly think of everything. These lists are great! Thanks for the links, GoldensGirl.

LibertyMe, did you come up with that list yourself? If so, I'm impressed! :)

Yes this is my personal list.
I raised service dogs for years....
When I stopped SD training, I continued to use the list for my own puppies...
Then over the years, breeder friends started asking me to socialize their pups for them....so the list has evolved over many years.
