The first six months of life, especially the first 16 weeks, are very important. What puppies learn or don’t learn during this period will affect them for the rest of their lives. Handled well, this stage prepares the puppy for life, builds resilience, confidence, and optimism, and makes it easy for the pup to continue learning throughout her life. Lessons learned during this stage will either help or undermine training in the future.
