The study of important times in a dog's life when intrinsic and extrinsic influences have the greatest impact on a dog's social and psychological development to maximize an individual's genetic potential. These include studying physical parameters, the development of body language, bonding, socialization, pack and play behavior, species-specific discipline, and normal behavioral changes throughout the dog's life. The course also covers puppy selection procedures designed to evaluate the temperament and personality of puppies for successful placement, and developing a puppy class curriculum.
