Today we see the puppies with more developed personalities. There have been some big changes in personality and its just adorable to see. We also have a big update on one of our little guys! Claire talks about the importance of socialization and gives you some tips for helping your puppy become the mannerly and gentle dog of your dreams.
Puppy personality updates are always fun to watch! These little guys are playful and watching them learn how to interact and figure out their place in the litter is wonderful. We’ve been busy socializing them and giving them lots of positive experiences to help them feel more secure in the world. Our puppy socializer, Peyton, has been here playing with them and giving us plenty of feedback on which puppies play nicest with little kids. This information is invaluable when it comes to allocation decisions.
Socialization is vitally important for your new puppy. We don’t want to create reactive or scared dogs, we want all our dogs to be secure and comfortable. We invest a lot of time and energy into helping your new puppy feel safe regardless of how exciting or new an experience may be. This is how Van Isle Labradoodles have such a good reputation for being calm, mannerly and generally just sweet dogs.
