We discuss during orientation and I have sent out previous tips about the stages of dog development. We also recently increased the descriptions and explanations in the Foster Home/Puppy Raiser Manual. There are a couple periods during development that a dog goes through sudden and often unexplained fear stages. I think this article explains the stage and how to deal with the dog very clearly. Please take a look at the link below.
Please send your feedback or join the conversation on our closed Facebook site Puppy Raisers for Summit. I look forward to hearing your observations, experiences, and questions.
