Puppy Socialising Checklist

Puppies critical period is from 6 to 16 weeks. During this time it is critical that you habituate your puppy to as many experiences as positively as you can. We have put together a small check list of things to expose your puppy to.

  • Cars driving
  • Trains
  • Buses
  • Heavy Traffic
  • Cats
  • Rabbits/ Pocket pets
  • Swings
  • Slides
  • Children
  • Adults Male and Female
  • Crowds
  • Puppies
  • Dogs
  • Pots and pans banging together

To successfully habituate and socialize your puppy, every experience of the above needs to be a positive one. If your puppy is struggling to cope, take it back a step. Move them away from the stimulus until they stop feeling stressed and then reward and slowly decrease the distance.
