Introducing your puppy to traffic.

Puppies should be introduce to traffic at an early age but don’t go straight to a very busy road with fast moving heavy vehicles.

They make a lot of noise and they make the pavement shudder.

First choose a quiet road, possible on an estate.

Talk to your puppy as you walk along encouraging it.

If your puppy is a little worried when a vehicle passes don’t bend down and pet it or pick the puppy up, you are then conveying to that pup that to be scared is good.

Keep walking but talking to the puppy in an encouraging manner.

Only praise when you get the behaviour you want.

Once your puppy is happy in light traffic you can build up to heavier more noisy traffic.

Do it gradually and you shouldn’t have a problem.
