Highly Qualified Professionals

Operation Socialization™ Trainers are a select bunch. They:

√ Have at least 3 years of experience helping families like yours.

√ Teach everything from basic to advanced obedience. Many also work one-on-one with clients to solve behavior problems.

Reward-Based Training Methods

OS Trainers use only science-based, humane, and effective training methods (also known as Positive Reinforcement Training).

Socialization is about creating as many positive associations with new experiences as possible for puppies. This can't be done using outdated methods like force or intimidation. Our trainers never use choke, prong, or shock collars.

Continuing Education

Our trainers stay up-to-date on the latest research and methods in the field of animal behavior, and are especially knowledgeable about the best ways to socialize your puppy.

Choosing an OS Certified Trainer™ means securing a knowledgeable, experienced ally for yourself during your puppy's all-important development stages.

Tailored Socialization

Behavior is not an exact science. What's more, no two puppies are the same. An experience can be wonderful for one puppy and traumatizing for another. And unless someone realizes this, problems can quickly escalate - or become entrenched.

You want a trainer capable of judging what's right for your particular puppy. OS trainers have years of experience reading the subtle body cues of hundreds of puppies, and designing socialization programs accordingly.

Access to OS Socialization Success Program

Signing up with an OS Trainer puts the entire Operation Socialization enterprise at your disposal. You won't find our passports, bandannas, and Socialization Destination Networks anywhere else.
