”Precious”-litter week 5 and 6

Week 5 to 7 are weeks characterised by curiosity adn is in many ways crucial for the puppies’ brain development. This is the time when they are most curious and willing to approach people. At the same time – these are also the weeks when their natural fearfulness is starting to be shaped by their environment. The increase of that fearfulness is a gradual process, which means that now is the time to make sure the puppies experience different sights, sounds and people. It is also a good a idea to add new toys and experiences. All the effort the breeder put in will have a major influence on how well balanced the puppy will be as adult.
