English Cream Golden Retriever Puppies Foundational Start Routine – Wisteria Goldens
Our Foundational Start Routine is designed each week to build upon the next. We recommend each new Forever Home continue with the introduced socialization training and continue to build upon each activity when your puppy arrives to your home.
–Newborn to two weeks:
Hold/handle puppy while touching ears, mouth, feet, toes, and tail.
Begin introducing puppy to temperature changes and textures inside the whelping box.
–Two to four weeks:
Continue above routine and add toys to whelping box.
–Four to five weeks:
Begin introducing to the crate, grooming table, and grooming process; Brushing, nail clipping, cleaning ears, etc. We have Puppy Parties and Puppy Gym sessions as part of socialization training.
–Five to six weeks:
We continue all of the previous week’s activities and introduce puppies to new areas as a litter such as group walks outside to familiarize with new surroundings.
–Six to eight weeks:
Continue all of the previous week’s activities and add individual time with each puppy in the litter. At this age we begin to introduce Clicker Training with treats. Training commands are introduced (sit) and an introduction to a collar and leash (walking on a leash).
