It’s important that we lay a solid foundation for our pups. Starting at 8 weeks old puppies begin to “learn,” and in many cases, misinterpret our expectations. By beginning training in this critical stage we’re able to mold our dogs’ behavior, as opposed to modifying them.
Puppies have a small window of development that we like to call the “imprinting stage.” This is the time where most knowledge is consumed. Imprinting takes place between the ages of 8 weeks and 6 months. This is best time to shape your dogs’ temperament and disposition, made possible through effective communication.
Whether that behavior is for:
- Working Dog
- Service Dog
- Search and Rescue
The first 6 months is where all the preparation occurs.
