Picking up your puppy – The puppies normally leave our home at eight or nine weeks of age. Of course factors such as the new family’s schedule or the puppy’s development can affect when the puppy will leave our home. A great deal of effort has been put into the socialization of our puppies. From the time of their birth until the day you meet them, it can be said with certainty that we have been preparing them for a place in a loving family and also a great social life. The puppies are handled every day, including their birth day. Just as with an infant, the puppies are soothed with soft music or white noise and then gradually introduced to the sounds of everyday life…phones ringing, children playing, a vacuum cleaner, dogs barking, car horns, lawn mowers. We make an effort to get the puppies to have met at least fifty people before they are to leave for a new family. This effort includes trips to the post office or bank, the hardware store, or a stroll through the neighborhood. We would urge you to dedicate this same endeavor to your puppy in order to continue in his or her positive development through to maturity. Ideal socialization for puppies is ten to sixteen weeks. This is a time when he or she will be eager and willing to learn with no questions asked. They will look to you for confidence and praise, ultimately building mutual bonds of love, protection, and respect to last for years. The family bond will begin the day that the puppy is brought to his or her new home. We ask that our puppies have three to five days of quality, undivided attention with its new family. The puppy needs security and love to transition into a new family and this special time cannot be recreated. You will receive a complete information packet with need information to care for your new Coton puppy. We would be pleased to answer any question or concern you may have during the lifetime of your Coton.
