SO YOU'VE GOT A NEW PUPPY... NOW WHAT?
Whether you've already got your new pup or are preparing to take your new pup home, if you're reading this you've realized that a new puppy can be a tremendous undertaking. Although some of the most trying parts of raising a puppy are entirely normal developmental phases for canines, there is a lot we can do to ease these challenges and positively affect puppy's future. For example, from about 6 weeks to 18 weeks of age, puppies go through a social development period that has a permanent impact on the rest of their lives. It's extremely important to actively socialize puppies during this period, but how do we accomplish that?
Socialization means an awful lot more than just playing with other dogs—socialization should include controlled, fun encounters with a wide variety of people, places, noises, and situations. The more positive exposure a puppy has during this socialization period, the better adjusted the puppy will be as an adult. Because socialization is so important, REkALIBRATED k9 has a variety of programs geared towards giving puppies the best possible start in their first year of a life.
