British volunteer organization Guide Gogs developed a program, which, according to experts, will help is to train the dog for life in the circle of people. The technique is described in an article published in the journal Applied Animal Behaviour Science.

One of the main tasks of the trainer is to familiarize the pet with the largest possible number of people, surfaces and spaces in the first six weeks after birth, experts explain.

Puppies are born blind and deaf, so the first two weeks of training should be devoted to tactile sensations — the dog need to be ironed, pressed to itself, to comb her hair with a brush with soft bristles to wrap up in a blanket of soft tissues.

From the second to the fourth week, the puppies are beginning to develop physically. During this period, a dog needs to walk on different surfaces, e.g. asphalt. In parallel, the pet gets used to the sound of household appliances.

At the fifth and sixth week, the puppy can be introduced to other people. As scholars have noted, it is useful to show the dog the bearded or mustachioed men, people wearing glasses or hats. To make the pet without the fear react to unexpected events, experts recommend to disclose before him an umbrella. At this stage of the program of dogs is also planted in front of a mirror, so that they get used to his reflection.

According to scientists, by the end of the course participated in the experiment, the puppies began to communicate confidently with people, and by the eighth month of life, they become more attentive, which is very important for further training.

«We have shown that these little games help the puppy to feel the confidence and desire to communicate. On the eighth month they are very good at development. Dogs also who have not passed the stage of socialization at an early age, grow nervous and scared,» said lead researcher group Helen Whiteside.
