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 !
