According to the staff at Canine Assistants, it's very important to start socializing and teaching the puppies at a young age. 

"It's very important at an early age that they think all dogs grow up at the grocery store or Home Depot, so they accept being in public as what every dog does," said Dr. Kent Bruner. "It's very normal, and they've done it their whole life." 

Dr. Bruner said it's also important for Canine Assistants to have a variety of dogs to cater to the different personalities they will one day work with.
