Inprinting- en socialisation phase...

This period, the 4th  till the 12th  week, is the most important stage
in the life of a dog. During these weeks the puppies have to
experience as much as possible human, dogs,
other animals, aparatus and situations.
Missed experience in this period can't or can hardly be catched up.
The puppies grow up in our house and get used to the daily life
with all of the noises, as the vacuum cleaner, washing-machine etc.

Beside that we bring them in contact with the outer world:

the life on our farmyard with our dachshund, goats, cats and poultry
and we take them to the city to get used to the rush, trafic, stores etc.
Here is important: young learned, old done !
