Stages of Growth: Question 11
What occurs during the "Window of Socialization"?
The puppy's mother will teach him canine social etiquette, how to interact with older dogs higher in the social order, the social roles of the pack, the correct social responses expected of him and he will learn canine-to-canine communication skills.
Your puppy will learn canine-to-human social skills from observing his mother's interaction with people, to recognize that people are a part of his family, to accept them as pack mates and to realize that people have a place in the social order of his family.
Your puppy will begin to become aware of the social order within your family and will try to find his place in it. He will start to think of your family as pack and observe the social interaction between you and the rest of your family in order to determine his place in the family’s overall social order.
Your puppy's focus will be on eating, keeping warm, sleeping so that he can grow and physical develop and he will stay close to his mother, drawing comfort and security from her.
