Nearly fifty years after the landmark study by Drs. Scott and Fuller was published in 1964, many breeders, rescue workers, behavioral counselors and trainers still lack in-depth knowledge of the impact of specific times in a dog’s psychological and behavioral development. Understanding these important time frames enables professionals and owners to make the most of them, to avoid actions that can cause permanent psychological scars, and to recognize when behavioral issues may be related to an event or missed opportunity during a critical period. This program includes: • The first few weeks: Their importance throughout the dog’s life, and their impact on adult behavior. • All about socialization: A plan to make the most of it. • Teething: It’s more than needle sharp “milk teeth.” Strategies to help owners get through both teething periods. • Strategies to overcome what was missed. In celebration of Adopt-A-Dog-Month, this webinar is presented for free by Petfinder.com.
