Early Socialization

Early socialization and handling is the first step in helping your puppy become a happy well adjusted dog.

Be sure your puppy has many opportunities to explore the world safely to help create positive associations.

When you are working with your puppy be sure to keep a close eye on their body language and adjust your plans according to their comfort level.

If they are getting stressed or upset help them out of that situation and work further away, never force your puppy into a situation they are uncomfortable with.

Don’t forget that now is also the perfect time to teach your puppy to love being handled and groomed.

Follow every body touch or new experience with a treat. We want our puppy to learn that touch and handling predicts something great!
