In this video I discuss and demonstrate key exercises you can undertake to introduce your puppy to novel stimulus e.g. items that they may not have seen before but we require them to be confident around in every day life. The same training principles can also be applied to introducing your puppy to new experiences.
Remember, what we take for granted in life can be confusing and alien to our puppy. As their owner, it is our job to help our puppy to understand the world we live in. My top tip here is to spend time observing your puppy’s reaction and go at their individual pace. We want to make our puppy’s experiences positive, so take your time and give your puppy lots of opportunities to succeed. Slow and steady wins the race!
