How important is socialization?

What is more important is making sure that you give your puppy the right socialization!

First, what is socialization? it's getting your puppy used to the world and everything there is around them: dogs, cars, people, noises, new situations and other animals.

It's important that you do your puppy socialization when he/her is ready for it. Not forcing your puppies into a situations they cannot cope with will increase your puppy trust in you and also you will give your puppy time to gain confidence and take things on their own pace.

Look at your puppy body language to learn more about how they feel about a new situation: tail is up or down, ears are back, is he/she looking for a place to hide, your legs or someone else's, a place to escape, is his posture up right or bending down like hiding?
Don't leave your puppy in a situation if they are not happy, they will remember a negative association.

Socializing with dogs is also important, if done the proper way. Make sure your puppy has a chance to interact with dogs his own age/size to avoid injuries and accident. If playing with big dogs, make sure the other dog is not too much for your young puppy.
