Puppies have their critical socialization period up to around 12 weeks of age, and a puppy in the first 12 weeks should experience as many positive things as possible, especially activities that the puppy will likely do as an adult. Here is Green boy in his new home learning all about riding in a canoe! He’s looking pretty relaxed about the entire event. No problem it seems a canoe is a very comfy place to have a little nap! Too cute! Such a good puppy.
