Wow impressive...what age did you start added new enviroments/sounds/people....etcOh, suddenly having 11 puppies was quite an experience - it was wonderful and I'm glad I got to go thru it, but it was exhausting, and I wouldn't deliberately sign up for again. They all had their own distinct personalities. Their mom fed them and loved to play - but there's so much more to it than just that. I wanted these puppies to have the best possible chance at having a good life, and staying in their homes. I involved practically the whole neighborhood - kids and adults came over constantly to play, pet, and socialize with the pups. They were so used to people of all ages, men, women, kids, dogs (mine and my neighbors, who took mom and pups to her house on several occasions), and cats. They were used to noises - telephone, vacuum, radio, lawnmower, banging pots, etc ... so weren't jumpy when things happened out of the ordinary. They were used to different surfaces inside and outside - linoleum, carpet, matting, grass, dirt, rocks, pads, climbing on different things outside, small steps, all kinds of things - not to
mention toys of all shapes and sizes. When they went to their new homes, they all came running to a clap of my hands and "come, puppies". They also would come running outside and potty to "potty puppies". No one could believe I could get 11 puppies to potty, but they did it!! Everyone got back to me and said they couldn't believe it, but the housetraining was 80% done before their puppies even got home. The two I kept had very few accidents (and they were my fault - I was gone too long).
