Having a new puppy is both an exciting and very time consuming endeavour. As well as taking great care of your new puppy it is also essential for you to help them develop the most desirable behaviour traits so they do not become aggressive or fearful once they are adults.
To ensure this does not happen it is best to socialise your puppy with other dogs, other people especially men and children, and new environments. It is also a good idea to get them used to be touched all over, this can be accomplished by gently touching them in around their ears and feet and rewarding them with praise or treats when they remain calm. You can also play dress ups with them which will help them not be stressed out when they need any vet work done like having their nails trimmed, vaccinations or needing to wear any bandages or Elizabethan cones.
