I am in Germany staying with the breeder Katja Pohlers Of Silent Storm border collies. I am picking up a puppy for my spouse. Our puppy’s name is Lumos. The breeder is socializing the puppies to all different kinds of surfaces and noises. Sit back and enjoy watching with me! Puppies need to be socialized to all the different environments, sights, sounds, and smells that they could possibly encounter in their lifetime during their most important socialization period. The benefit of socializing the puppies while still at the breeders is the puppies still have the support of the litter and the parents, and breeder. The time at the breeders is also during the most important socialization period. Proactive training and socialization prevents so many problem behaviors down the line. You can help your breeder by volunteering to help with the puppies socialization.
