About OS for Businesses

Operation Socialization For Businesses is a network of businesses helping dog owners raise puppies into well-rounded companion dogs.


How? By getting the puppies used to the settings of modern life, including shops, cafes, gyms, offices, warehouses, and so forth, while they are young and receptive.

As an OS member business you become a Socialization Destination™ and increase your clientele, set yourself apart from the competition, and provide a valuable service to your community.

What's In It For You?

√ More customers through the door.

√  Good karma. You help puppies become better canine citizens.
