The puppies this week have been wormed, had their nails trimmed and the fur around their paws trimmed, they have also been brushed with a baby brush. This will get them used to being handled. They have been outside during the week, having a good play and sniff around, listening to sounds that are new to them, next door's dog barking, traffic sounds and children playing in their gardens. Every day sounds but all new to the puppies. This is part of their socialisation - so important at this age. I will write more about socialisation in the next few day.
