Puppies need to learn some independence as soon as they come home, however it’s often a shock to the system as they’ve spent their entire lives up to this moment, with their mother and littermates. Hopefully your breeder took some time to create the puppies separately for the last week prior to adoption!
Either way, you will need to start very gradually and be patient and compassionate. There is no trial-by-fire when it comes to building independence.
