Early puppy socialisation is so important, it’s to overstate just how much impact it can have as the pup grows in to an adult.

If you read the situations listed on this puppy socialisation checklist, we’d also add some of the following tips for better socialisation of your puppy:

1. Hand contact. Get your pup used to being touched, stroked and handled.

2. Exposure to different sounds. Noise phobia can develop at any age, but the earlier a pup gets used to hearing different sounds, the better.

3. Exposure to other dogs. Not to be done until pup is vaccinated, but exposure to other dogs at an early age can circumvent many problems developing later.
