Desensitisation and Habituation

Desensitisation and habituation are crucial parts of your puppy’s upbringing and should be started with the breeder. Within the puppy documents below there is a habituation list that you can print off and work through with your puppy to ensure that they have exposure to as much on the list that is relevant to you and your life before they are 20 weeks of age.

 

When introducing new things to your puppy start at a distance first and then gradually get closer. A good sign if your puppy isn’t coping with the situation is they may stop eating. I found with Pumpkin using a tube of cream cheese was really helpful. As she was a small puppy licking the cream cheese didn’t fill her tummy up so quickly and the licking also had an appeasement affect. 

Free Work

Free work is a great activity to do with your puppy if they become over-aroused or stressed by a new experienced.

Over arousal can happen through many things here are a few:

  1. Excessive play with people
  2. Excessive play with other dogs
  3. A new experience
  4. Visitors coming to the home
  5. Postman/delivery person coming to the house
  6. Loud noises
  7. Other dogs barking
To help lower your puppy’s heightened state of arousal set out some free-work. They should have a selection of items that they can sniff – hunt for treats and a selection of items they can lick. Cream cheese, peanut butter or liver paste is ideal for this. Don’t place food or the paste in every item you have out, this will help your puppy learn to explore and work out where the food is. The longer it takes them to find the food the lower their arousal level will become. 

It can take a puppy or dog up to 72 hours to come out of a heightened state of arousal so try this activity frequently to help keep your puppy calm
