Did you know that exposing your young puppy to a range of sounds and experiences, in a controlled and gradual manner in the first three months of his life (while pups are naturally investigative), can be of help in preventing him develop fears, phobias and behavioural problems?

Even before he’s fully vaccinated, you can to try to familiarise your young pup within safe environments like your house, garden and car, and with other adults and children. Short car trips can be fun and allow him a wide range of experiences – try to take him to places where he will hear other traffic and loud noises. As soon as he has developed immunity from his vaccinations it’s important for him to get out and about to different environments, to meet as many other dogs and other animals as possible to build up his confidence.
