Fases de desenvolvimento do cachorro 1a.- Antes de procurar um cachorro, você precisa de completar a sua educação sobre a educação de cachorros. Precisa de saber como selecionar um bom cachorro e como funcionam os cachorros. Escolher um cachorro é parecido com comprar um carro: pesquisar muito e fazer um “test-drive” de uma grande variedade. Mas primeiro você precisa de aprender a conduzir. 2a.- Antes de escolher o seu cachorro, você precisa de saber como avaliar a sua prospetiva da atual sociabilização do cachorro e do seu estado educacional. Independentemente da raça ou da criação, se a sociabilização, o treino em casa, e as boas maneiras não estão no bom caminho até às oito semanas de idade, o cachorro já está atrasado no seu desenvolvimento 3a.- Assegure-se de que um treino em casa sem erros e um programa de treino de roer brinquedos são estabelecidos desde o primeiro dia em que o seu cachorro chega a casa. 4a.- O seu cachorro precisa de ser sociabilizado a pessoas antes de ter doze semanas de idade. Como regra de ouro, o seu cachorro precisa de conhecer durante o seu primeiro mês em casa pelo menos cem pessoas diferentes. 5a.- A inibição de mordida é das lições mais importantes que um cão deve aprender. A escassa janela de tempo para desenvolver uma “boca mole” começa a fechar-se aos quatro meses e meio de idade. 6a.- Para assegurar que o seu cachorro bem-educado continue bem sociabilizado e amigável para com as pessoas, durante a adolescência e a idade adulta, ele precisa de conhecer estranhos (especialmente crianças) todos os dias.
