Yes, yes, yes to all the above. Your vet will be a great source of information. I got my pup a bit early too at only 6 weeks old. Right now you can focus on getting her used to safe areas and things such as your house/rooms where you choose to keep her, her crate, other people, different floor surfaces, being held, different household noises (dishwasher, laundry, music, garbage disposal etc) safe parts of the yard, wearing a collar (start for just a few minutes a day) etc.
She will be sleeping a LOT, so just do short stints and make sure you set up for success by keeping everything under control, positive and SAFE. She will gain more and more confidence and you will be on your way towards getting her socialized.
Best of luck and she must be an absolute cutie pie!!!
