Typically, a breeder is going to raise their puppies until they are between 8 and 10 weeks of age. This helps to ensure that the pups are happy, healthy, and well-socialized. Oftentimes when you see a dog that is shy or overly defensive around people, it is from being weaned to early.

Playing with the other pups and the influence of mom helps to teach important and necessary things to your dog, such as how hard to bite when playing, and being around other dogs or people. So, be sure to keep your pups until 8 to 10 weeks of age. It’s not only a good idea, but in some states it’s also the law!
