Why the emphasis on puppy development protocols?

As breeders, we have an incredible opportunity to influence a dog for their entire lifetime.
Current research in puppy development has given us insight into when critical systems are developing and when we can have the greatest impact on them.
While we can’t create a puppy who is fearless, we can influence their development to such a point that they are resilient to fear.
With our training and guidance, puppies are more willing to try new things and will recover faster from adverse events.
Not only will this result in a better behaved puppy, but with better coping mechanisms, the puppy will suffer less stress over it’s lifetime and should live longer.
