Puppy socialization in our kennel
Socialization is very important part of raising puppies. I put a lot of attention to that, making sure all of puppies leave our home fully ready for their future life with new owners! They are always brave and happy, friendly and very social to people and dogs.
Just right after they are born I start them with ENS - Early Neurological Stimulation. If you want to find out more about ENS, click here and here.
Puppies are born in our house, so from early days they are exposed to different people and different noises of everyday life. When socialising them, I follow partially Puppy Culture and just my own experience. I've been breeding for a good few years now, I know what works best for me and my puppies.
When they are around 5 weeks old, they start spending most of the day outside, where they have their own 'puppy playground' :) Many diffrent toys (soft, hard, small, big, wood, plastic, etc), many different surfaces, different things make diffrents noises, they can climb, run and they looove it :)
When they are a bit older, after their first vaccinations, I also bring them outside our property, so they are also introduced to the outside world - forests, lakes... Also thanks to that, they get used to car rides, which prepares them for journey to the new home.
And from the beginning I teach them recall, so they can run loosly in safe places and I'm not worried about it.
Mostly they spend whole days with me and my dogs, playing toys, running, fighting with siblings, being happy or just liying next to me on the couch or in the bed :)
