Bringing home a new puppy can be quite nerve-wracking, especially when you have children or other dogs in the home.
This is doubly true if you have both!
The importance of early socialization
This video shows the arrival of an 8-week-old puppy in his new home. Dobermans are very intelligent dogs, but they do need an experienced handler growing up. Training and socialization is key if you want these dogs to be friendly and well-behaved as adults! And the sooner you start, the better.
A very happy dog
That's why this family wasted no time in introducing this puppy to the family dog, much to said dog's joy! Though the puppy is a little hesitant, the family dog just can't contain her joy! A new friend to play with! What a great surprise!
Everything about her body language says she wants to play: relaxed mouth, wagging tail, and rear end up in the air! It seems she’ll have to wait a little longer until the little puppy settles and comes out of his shell before being able to play with him though.
