Understanding Vital Growth Stages Of A Yorkie Puppy

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, especially for dogs. The fact is, well-socialized dogs are more likely to have well-socialized puppies. Pups often mirror their mothers' calm or fearful attitude toward people; this is a normal part of their socialization. But you can play a vital role too, by petting, talking, and playing with puppy to help him develop good "people skills."

Puppies are usually weaned at six to seven weeks, but are still learning important skills as their mother gradually leaves them for longer periods of time. Ideally, puppies should stay with their littermates (or other "role-model" dogs) for at least 12 weeks

Puppies separated from their littermates too early often fail to develop appropriate "social skills," such as learning how to send and receive signals, what an "inhibited bite" (acceptable mouthing pressure) means, how far to go in play-wrestling, and so forth. Play is important for puppies because it increases their physical coordination, social skills, and learning limits. By interacting with their mother and littermates, puppies explore the ranking process ("who's in charge") and also learn "how to be a dog."

Skills not acquired during the first eight weeks may be lost forever. While these stages are important and fairly consistent, a dog's mind remains receptive to new experiences and lessons well beyond puppyhood. Most dogs are still puppies, in mind and body, through the first two years of life

General guidelines for puppies' stages of development

Birth to 2 weeks: Neonatal Period Puppy is most influenced by his mother. Senses of touch and taste are present at birth.

New BornNew Born    

 2 to 4 weeks: Transitional Period Puppy is most influenced by his mother and littermates. Eyes open, teeth begin to come in, and senses of hearing and smell develop. Puppy begins to stand, walk a little, wag tail, and bark. By the fourth or fifth week, eyesight is well-developed.
 

 Yorkie 2 to 4 Weeks Yorkshire Terrier 2 to 4 Weeks

 

3 to 12 weeks: Socialization Period During this period, puppy needs opportunities to meet other dogs and people

3 to 5 weeks: puppy becomes aware of his surroundings, companions (both canine and human), and relationships, including play.

4 to 6 weeks: puppy is most influenced by littermates and is learning about being a dog.
 

4 to 12 weeks: puppy remains influenced by littermates and is also influenced by people. Puppy learns to play, develops social skills, learns the inhibited bite, explores social structure/ranking, and improves physical coordination.

5 to 7 weeks: puppy develops curiosity and explores new experiences. Puppy needs positive "people" experiences.

7 to 9 weeks: puppy is refining his physical skills and coordination, and can begin to be housetrained. Puppy has full use of senses.

8 to 10 weeks: puppy experiences real fear involving normal objects and experiences; puppy needs positive training.

9 to 12 weeks: puppy is refining reactions, developing social skills with littermates (appropriate interactions), and exploring the environment and objects. Puppy begins to focus on people; this is a good time to begin training.

3 to 6 Months: Ranking Period Puppy is most influenced by "playmates," which may now include those of other species. Puppy begins to see and use ranking (dominance and submission) within the household (the puppy's "pack"), including humans. Puppy begins teething.

 

4 months: puppy experiences another fear stage.



6 to 18 Months: Adolescence Puppy is most influenced by human and dog "pack" members.
 

7 to 9 months: puppy goes through a second chewing phase, part of exploring territory.

Puppy increases exploration of dominance, including challenging humans.

If not spayed or neutered, puppy experiences beginnings of sexual behavior.
