Red face Train/socialize puppy in winter

Can someone tell me how to get this pup socialized, yes I can't spell
Winter is coming, I am so sad, it will be -40 soon, snow falls sometime in oct, usually close to halloween these years unlike it was for my oldest sister growing up here, ummm I am doing my best with her, but for the past two days of owning her for 4 days, my mom wont let us take her outside with us when we walk buddie so she gets some socialzed and have fun and explore before she will be pretty well trapped inside all winter, I dont know what to do with a small pom in such weather, should ask the other pom owners here. What are your views though? What should I do and say to my mom ? My sister can wait until people are at work and school to do it, any advice to train her and get her used to stuff like tricks you use with your pups/dogs and such will be a wonderful help, to make her a wonderful happy feeling safe dog.

Are there any puppy classes in your area? I took my too to puppy pre-school which is basically just an hour of socialising with other pups.

I'd start obedience training everything from "watch me" to sits, downs, stays, recalls, and heeling.

Find some good articles on the web about the importance of puppy socialization and print them out for your mom to read. Start working with the puppy on basic obedience commands and walking on a leash inside the house and demonstrate to your mom that she knows some basic commands and can walk on a loose leash. Maybe that will give your mom the confidence in both you and the dog so that she will allow you to take it more palces with you.


Good luck!!

just do as much as you can in the home if not taking puppy out...invite people over, all ages inc children and babies, with and without dogs if possible and get pup used to all sorts of noises...the tv is great for this...i turned up a film with alot of shooting on it when ruby was a puppy and now she does not bat an eyelid when there is fireworks in the neighbourhood...also basic things like the hoover, or go sit out in the car with the engine running, radio on etc...and ofcourse taking her for a ride! good luck!!!

Shes a pom and she doesnt sit or those things. I am trying to teach her, she doesnt sit when you do the thing with the treat, she just stands up, that shouldnt be hard to give that a command lol or her digging which she does on pillow. hmm. I am hoping for the best though. If you want other info I can type it out sometime if it will help anything.

Hi puppieluv
I got Zircon at the age of four months in November and it gets pretty darn cold here too. He didn't have a thick coat so I knitted him a little sweater.
Dogs are tougher than we think, and as long as your Pom pup has her shots, you should be able to take her outside where she can see people and other dogs. If you are worried about salt on her paws, they make little booties to protect them.

I always teach mine when I have a puppy is sit, shake, down, roll over all in one sequence, then they do it so well it is by hand a signal. Keep the puppy busy learning, but truly you need to get it out and about, in the auto, walking near or with people other dogs or pups, very important if not the most for pups to be raised into great adults. Do your best and as suggested google socialization and print out or show your mom how necessary this is now.
