Critical Periods in Your Pup's Growth & Development
The puppy now has the brain waves of an adult dog, but his attention span is short.
This period is when the most rapid learning occurs. Learning at this age is permanent so this is a perfect time to start training but make it fun.
This is also the time to introduce the puppy to things that will play and important part in his life.
Different people, places, animals, hoovers ,washing machines, and unusual sounds, in a positive non threatening way.
It is at this time that a child’s personality is fully formed,
any learning after that is just based on knowledge and experience. The personality will not change and that
is exactly the same for your dog.
e your pup at this time determines if he will come to you when called.
s a physical need to exercise his mouth by chewing.
o reinforce the fear the exact opposite of humans.
Anyone can be the leader/controller. It is an attitude an air of authority.
