    DefaultBring puppy home At 8.5 weeks or 9 weeks and 2 days?

    Hi

    Im soon going to be the happy Owner of a lovely lab puppy. Due to various circumstances there are 2 options

    1. Bring him home at 8,5 weeks and have the following 5 days completely off from work
    2. Bring home at 9 weeks and 2 days and have following 9 days completely off from work

    Which one do you think will be best for puppy? I'm afraid that option 2 is too late for socializing, bonding etc?

    Either is fine. I would opt for 8.5 weeks.

    nonsense you can bond with a dog of any age. many of us adopt dogs much older and still have wonderful and amazing bonds with our dog.

    i would say make sure you are not home 24-7 those days. puppy needs to learns to be alone for short periods. go shopping, run an errand, slowly get him used to you (all the family) being gone in small portions of time.
