We try to expose puppies to everything as young pups: distractions, bitework on a puppy flirt pole, and soft rags, graduating to soft puppy leather.
Some can start a bit earlier, or later, depending on the pup. We have one pup we are going to do Ring with, that has been on a leg sleeve, and suit since a very young age.
We do little to no obedience, other than shaping some behaviors with food at a young age. We subscribe to the "build the engine before you install the brakes" mentality.
We also socialize, and do a lot of environmental exposure from a young age.
Depending on the pup, and what it is destined for, we may also start tracking them young also.
