Re: Socializing with her littermate and mom
ANY positive socialization is good good good and should have no impact on your 'pack'.
In fact the opposite is true, when we worry about our pack and unintentionally isolate our puppies from other dogs for months, THEN there may be future lifetime issues with any other dogs.
Our puppies live with us, learn from us, go to puppy classes with us, eat from us, get leadership and guidance from us. So for a few hours, to have them also learn and continue to develop the essential dog skills they will need during their lives, has nothing to do with OUR bond. Just makes us good leaders to be responsible enough to broaden their horizons and allow them to gain more valuable life skills.
