Socialize your pet. This is especially important for puppies. Again – behavior problems are the number one reason dogs don’t stay with their families and don’t get adopted by new families. Lack of proper socialization can result in inappropriate fears, aggressive behavior, general timidity, and a host of other behavior problems that are difficult to extinguish once a dog is mature.
The puppy is then named Buddy after ‘Buddy the elf’ and Jensen introduces him to his family.
He tells the dog: ‘So Buddy, this is my mummy, and this is my grandad who is taking the video of you, and this is my Nana.
