Bringing home a new puppy is a bundle of fun. Puppy socialization is the main thing you will need to give attention to before your pup reaches age 12 weeks. This puppy dog socialization period is recognized as the 'window of opportunity' because it is the period of time when pet dogs learn best how to handle the unfamiliar. Therefore, the more people, puppies, objects, sounds and environments the puppy can come in contact with during this period, the better. Puppy socialization to these new experiences helps the puppy dog to be far more confident as a mature dog when subjected to unfamiliar events.
Puppy socialization can likewise incorporate making funny faces and stupid noises at puppies; exposing those to skateboards, bicycles, wheelie bins and other moving things. Sounds of airplanes, noisy machinery, children screaming, infants crying, radios blaring are usually everyday occurrences that your pup may experience in later life. CD's are available with all sorts of sounds, including thunder which is something that's not always designed for the doggy to get used to.
