5 experiences to do with your puppy:
N.1 TAKE IT BY CAR
Get the puppy used to the car in small steps, take him to pleasant places where he can always associate the use of the car with something positive. Start to get it up with the engine off for a few minutes with you, then get on it with the engine running but still stationary, and only then, start taking it for short rides. Remember to always reward your puppy after these little experiences! In this way you can then take it everywhere with you for many adventures together!
N.2 TAKE IT TO THE CITY
Cities can be a very stressful environment for dogs, which is why it is important to get them used to living peacefully even an afternoon downtown with you as a puppy. Start in open, uncrowded places and then slowly proceed to visit even more populated areas. Always give your puppy security, try to get his attention at times when there are very strong stimuli, and reward him every time he looks at you and concentrates on you and your request!
N.3 TAKE IT TO BARS & RESTAURANTS
Take your puppy with you for short stops in bars and restaurants, if possible always outdoors first. Work on calm right away and the dog will slowly learn to relax even between tables and waiters. Consistency is the key to a relationship based on trust and calm! Don't get discouraged if your puppy isn't immediately calm in closed rooms, loud noises and chaos can agitate him, don't subject him to great stress, but choose quiet rooms where he can find an undisturbed space to relax. Do not give him table things, or he will always try to get something…
N.4 LET THEM MEET DIFFERENT PEOPLE
Some puppies can be very suspicious of strangers, so try to get them to have many positive encounters with different people in different places and circumstances, both in terms of gender, age, size and ethnicity. Choose people who know how to interact correctly with puppies, so that they always have positive experiences, environmental and sensory enrichment, thus stimulating their curiosity through play.
N.5 FIND HIM PLAYFRIENDS
The puppy needs to play, to vent his thousand energies and to interact with his own kind, find him a playmate, an adult to learn the hierarchies and limits not to overcome and also other puppies to be able to share more physical moments of play !
