The biggest crisis affecting pet dogs today is poor breeding environments.
Puppies born and reared in squalid ‘ Puppy farms’ are usually what comes to mind,
but also as detrimental to a puppy’s physical and behavioural wellbeing are barren rearing environments such as sheds or outhouses .
Puppies kept in such environments will often be poorly, timid and fearful.
How friendly and outgoing a puppy will be is determined by experiences it has before the age of 12 weeks.
This means that much of the critical socialisation time is spent with the breeder!
Get a puppy from a dam with a good temperament; one that is not fearful or aggressive.
Puppies will be a reflection of their mother.
Be able to interact with the mother.
Just seeing the mother from a distance is not adequate to judge the above
Obtain a puppy from a good breeding environment, preferably house-reared.
Socialisation starts from 2 weeks of age. Exposure to a range of positive experiences will better equip them for life in the human world. Therefore, a breeder’s role is vital for the development of a well-adjusted dog.
