I think socialization is the most important thing before 12 weeks. Bring her everywhere with you. The first week or two when my puppy was small, I snuck him in several places that didn't allow dogs by carrying him in a small dog carrier - he was exposed to automatic doors, weird noises, lots of people, etc. We also did 3 puppy classes! And... I hunted down every friend I knew who had kids and invited myself and my puppy over .
