• Period of fear 12-16 Weeks
The puppy will spook very easily in this period, and frightening experiences can have a lasting effect on the puppy.
In this period, we dont allow children to carry or pick up puppies, nor play with them without close supervision. We try not to allow the pup in contact with dogs we dont know that are gentle with pups. A puppy subjected to an attack by another dog in this period will most likely suffer from fear aggression its whole life.
Things learned by association are permanent.
