I would like to adopt a puppy in the next year or so, and am starting to do a little research. I intend to make full use of the resources available in my community to ensure my new friend has the right start, training, socialization, and so on.
Down the road, I would like to take my new friend on some adventures, and this will involve tent camping in somewhat remote locations. I have this vision in my head of sleeping soundly in my bag, when some innocent woodland creature wanders by. Suddenly the dog has gone beside itself, ripped through the tent fabric with its claws, only to subsequently be scratched, bitten, sprayed, invenomated, or otherwise messed up by the critter who was only making its rounds.
What sort of experiences and training should I expose the puppy to early on, in order to acclimate it to these situations and ensure at most a warning bark to whatever lies outside the canvas?
