Whereas some may not realize sounds are part of the socialization and imprinting process, I'm here to tell you this is a big part! Our pups begin this process with listening to sounds at low levels, and as they grow and develop, more sounds are added and volumes increased. I'm happy to say that we've added a few toys that have blaring sirens and movements and lights, and while introducing these yesterday to the two oldest litters, we found puppies coming up to investigate. No ears back, no crouching, no darters - this is all GOOD. We've really stepped up our program with this area this season, adding some very important and intentional sounds to the pups' everyday. Our youngest litter, Nadia's, is still working on the socialization CD, and listening to babies crying, fireworks, airports, kennels, power tools, and so on (and on. . .). They're doing great and we're so pleased with the progress this season.
Just for good measure. . . we also added a morning of Josh Groban! (Actually, this was for the puppy handler's inspiration. . . lol. . . so I had a music-jammin' mornin' of his AWAKE album this week!) And I think the pups loved it just like I did! :D
Why Snitker Goldens
We begin with quality tested and approved breeding Goldens and build on that solid foundation with our puppies. Championship pedigrees in their lines are our way of remaining true to breed standard. We strive to personally imprint each pup with positive, rewarding experiences – to nurture each one with love and care, realizing that each day we have your puppy is one day closer to the day you will hold him or her. We use this time to make that permanent impression on your pup, one which he or she will carry for a lifetime.
