Interview with Jennie Chen and Giselle Nevada
I understand that you have written a book about puppy socialization. Can you tell us a bit about it?
Jennie: Sure, the book is called The Puppy Adventures of Porter and Midge: Out and About. It’s a children’s book that teaches the importance of socializing your puppy through the charming story of two adventurous puppies.
Giselle: We wrote this book because we wanted to not only showcase our puppies’ adventures, but also to educate children and parents about the value of socializing their furry friends.
That sounds like a great idea. Can you tell us about your personal experiences with puppy socialization?
Jennie: Giselle and I brought home two adorable puppies named Porter and Midge. As we embarked on the process of socializing them, we started taking pictures of their adventures.
Giselle: These pictures soon became the inspiration for our book. We wanted to create a fun and engaging way to teach children about the importance of socialization.
What do you think are some of the benefits of socializing your puppy?
Jennie: Socializing your puppy is crucial because it helps them become well-adjusted adult dogs. A well-socialized puppy is more likely to be confident, friendly, and outgoing, making them easier to handle and more enjoyable to be around.
Giselle: It also helps prevent behavior problems such as aggression and anxiety. By exposing your puppy to a variety of people, animals, and environments, you’re helping them learn how to adapt to new situations and become comfortable with the world around them.
Those are all great points. Can you tell us about any challenges you faced while writing the book?
Giselle: Well, life got in the way, and the book project was put on hold for eight long years. But Jennie and I never forgot our passion for sharing the importance of puppy socialization with the world.
Jennie: Finally, we were able to complete the book we had dreamed of so long ago. We hope that it will help parents and caregivers properly socialize their puppies and create happy and healthy furry friends.
It sounds like your book is a valuable resource for any new or experienced dog owner. Thank you for taking the time to speak with us today, Jennie and Giselle.
