A lot of puppy socialization can occur in the house environment - contact with loud banging noises, such as clanging pans and pots, vacuum cleaners, washing machines, lawn mowers, etc.
Bringing home a fresh puppy is a bundle of fun. Puppy socialization is the main thing you need to focus on before your puppy reaches age 12 weeks. This doggy socialization period is recognized as the 'screen of opportunity' since it is the period of time when pups learn best how to handle the unfamiliar. Therefore, the more folks, puppies, objects, sounds and environments the puppy can be exposed to during this period, the better. Puppy socialization to these new activities helps the dog to be much more confident as a mature dog when subjected to unfamiliar events.
Ask any visitor that involves visit to take care of the puppy all over; coming in contact with the paws and feeling in between the toes; using the ears; presenting restrained hugs; playing with the mouth area and beginning the mouth putting your finger on the puppy's tongue. If at all possible expose your puppy to children and instruct them the way to handle the pup properly. Always make sure when children and pups are playing alongside one another that they are supervised. You don't want the kids to play too about with the puppy and you don't want the dog getting so hyped up by antics of children and becomes out of control.
