Stages of Growth: Question 8
What happens between six weeks and eight weeks in your puppy's life?
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.
The puppy will be separated from their mother and then bond to the new owner, expand his social skills, try to find his place in the social order and will learn to differentiate between safe and dangerous situations and things.
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'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.
