About D and D Standard Poodle Puppies
Our puppies are raised in our family home, including adults, child and other dogs. Our puppies get well socialized with both people of various ages and other dogs. Puppies get used to hearing a variety of sounds from regular household appliances, children's toys, to tvs, to vacuum cleaners, to other animals making noises, to grooming equipment such as clippers, clipper vac, drummel, and air force dryer, and things like the lawn mower and or tractor, etc.
In addition to starting the puppies' training in grooming, and traveling, we do also focus on training in other areas as well.
The puppies go out side to go potty. Puppies are started on crate training as we have found this is an effective method in house breaking a puppy, as well as keeping a puppy safe when unattended. Getting a puppy used to a crate is important for a new owner who may crate train their puppy, or have their puppy travel in a crate.
We start manners training as well.
In addition to socializing with different people, we also start the puppies on socializing with other dogs. Its important that this is a positive experience for the puppies, as well as it is an important activity to start early on as we hope for the puppies to be social dogs all throughout their lives. With young puppies you do have to be careful with socialization with other dogs - it is important that the dogs are in good health, no transferrable illness, up to date on their vaccinations, and known to be social with other dogs (which these are). Mistakes commonly made when a new owner starts socializing their puppy are letting puppies meet unknown dogs (unknown behavior, unknown health, unknown vaccination status), not monitoring the interaction carefully (and possibly not be educated of signs to look out for such as signs of aggression) which could lead to the puppy being injured or scared. If a puppy is injured that could result in a veterinarian visit. If the puppy is scared that can be hurtful to the puppy's socialization process and be a big set back in ensuring you have a dog who is social with other dogs throughout his/her lifetime.
We do also recommend that you follow up with enrolling your new puppy in some sort of puppy kindergarten class, AKC STAR Puppy, or similar class. These classes are very beneficial for both puppies and new owners. This way you can not only continue the puppy's training, but you can also continue socializing your puppy with other dogs and other people, and get them used to traveling as well.
