Re: Prep school for pups....what do the pups need to learn in the nxt few weeks?
Dina, I'm sure the breeders will have lots of good info for you.
My DH's mom is a breeder and I know one thing she works on at this age, once they are able to see, walk, etc is getting them used to being startled and recovering from the startle response. Nothing harsh...maybe just clapping hands and then assisting them in their recovery to being startled. She also uses the vacuum, lets the tv on and gets them used to hearing the sounds of a busy house.
She also works on getting them used to being on their backs for a few seconds without getting too stressed out.
Hope you get some good suggestions from the lab breeders here. I cant believe they are 4 weeks old already!
