BECAUSE this is the ideal time to teach your puppy not to bite, what to chew, how to be friendly (to dogs, kids and adults).   
BECAUSE your puppy can easily learn commands like sit, down and leave-it any time BUT you will never regain this opportunity to develop good social skills so naturally and with such little effort.


BECAUSE between 7 and 18 weeks of age (pre-adolescence) is a crucial time period in the social development of your puppy. 

BECAUSE the number one reason that dogs, 3 years of age and under, are relinquished to shelters and euthanized daily is "behavior problems” 


BECAUSE it has long been understood by many behaviorists, trainers, vet techs, veterinarians and shelter staff that Early Training and Socialization create a well-adjusted dog.
