Ask any visitor that involves visit to take care of the puppy around; coming in contact with the paws and feeling in between the toes; playing with the ears; providing restrained hugs; using the mouth area and beginning the mouth positioning your finger on the puppy's tongue. If at all possible expose your pup to children and educate them how to handle the pup properly. Constantly be sure when children and pups are playing together they are supervised. You do not want the children to learn too roughly with the dog and you don't want the puppy dog getting so hyped up by antics of children and becomes uncontrollable.
Bringing home a new puppy is a bundle of fun. Puppy socialization is the main thing you will need to concentrate on before your puppy reaches the age of 12 weeks. This doggie socialization period is recognized as the 'home window of opportunity' since it is the time period when pups learn best how to cope with the mysterious. Therefore, the more people, puppies, objects, noises and environments the doggy can be exposed to during this time period, the better. Puppy socialization to these new encounters helps the puppy to be a lot more confident as an older dog when put through unfamiliar events.
