'What is Puppy Parenting Really About?'




One of the most crucial things about raising a puppy is giving them early opportunities to gain understanding of the world around them. This means starting before they are fully vaccinated!


While it is vital to keep our vulnerable little ones safe from disease and to avoid high risk spaces, we also have an optimal window in which to properly expose them to a broad variety of new experiences. It is these experiences combined with steady, relaxed associations that helps to prevent fearful, reactive and even aggressive responses later in life. In short, early socialization equips our puppies with the coping mechanism to deal with novel stimuli and gives them the best chance of growing into secure and psychologically healthy adults.
