Puppy parties are great fun if you want to socialise with your pet in a safe playful environment. The first 16 weeks of the puppies life are what is known as the “Human Socialisation Period”. This is the time when you really need to introduce your puppy to as many things as possible. Learning at this age is permanent so this is a perfect time to start training. This is also the ideal time to introduce the puppy to things that will play an important part in his/her life. The puppy should be handled gently and positively by different people especially children.
You should go to strange places, meet other animals, road noises, trains, buses, and the hustle and bustle of the outdoors. You can also introduce various sounds such as the vacuum cleaner, washing machine, and lawn mower, All these new sounds should be introduced in a positive, non-threatening way.
