The best advice I ever got was on socializing in those early weeks, and I think it really pays off.

Plan to get your puppy out of the house and exposed to something new every day--literally every day--up to 16 weeks or so. Different sounds, places, walking surfaces, and especially different kinds of people (different ages, races, groups, settings, etc.)

Try to set a goal that you will expose your puppy in one month's time to a little sample of everything he will experience in his whole life. These imprints that are made early in life make a huge impact. And it sets the pup up for success for every endeavor afterward.
