Socialisation is the process of becoming familiar with all kinds of animals, people, places, and things; as well as learning how to behave in society. All puppies need socialisation, regardless of breed, type or temperament.
Wanting to understand how your dog thinks and feels must be high on most dog owners list, isn’t it? We all know their little quirky ways and habits, their ability to make you smile at those darn cute antics, but don’t you question ‘why’ sometimes?
Puppy is settling in well, the visitors are keen to come meet your new bundle of fur and you’ve romanticised about this moment… but your cute bundle keeps making a bee line for ankles and trousers. Sound familiar?
So Puppy likes to play… yeeeahhh. Puppy likes to chew?... yeeeahhhhh. Puppy’s like to bite? Yeeeeeeeeahhhhhhhhhh. These are all things that puppies love to do and it’s our mission as responsible pet owners to guide them to do it in an appropriate manner!
It’s important to understand the breeder’s role in your puppy’s life: they have already spent a great deal of time with your puppy and their responsibility is to understand the importance of those weeks.
