Bringing home a fresh puppy is a bundle of fun. Puppy socialization is the most crucial thing you need to focus on before your pup reaches the age of 12 weeks. This dog socialization period is known as the 'window of opportunity' because it is the period of time when pups learn best how to cope with the anonymous. Therefore, the more folks, puppies, objects, noises and surroundings the puppy dog can be exposed to during this time period, the better. Puppy socialization to these new activities helps the puppy dog to be far more confident as an older dog when put through unfamiliar events.
A whole lot of puppy socialization can occur in the house environment - contact with loud banging sounds, such as clanging pots and pans, vacuum cleaners, washing machines, garden mowers, etc.
Ask any visitor that involves visit to handle the puppy all over; coming in contact with the paws and feeling in between the toes; playing with the ears; presenting restrained hugs; playing with the mouth area and starting the mouth placing your finger on the puppy's tongue. If possible expose your pup to children and teach them how to handle the dog properly. Constantly be sure when children and pet dogs are playing along that they are supervised. You don't want the children to experiment with too roughly with the puppy dog and you don't want the puppy getting so hyped up by antics of children and becomes uncontrollable.
