The critical socialization period for puppies ends at about 15 weeks of age. These few weeks are when puppies are the most receptive to learning, making it a precious time to shape their view of the world. Positive experiences during this time help puppies learn that new things are fun and help them build confidence in coping with new situations. Canadian Canine College’s Puppy Daycare Program is a unique and tailored program designed to provide structured socialization opportunities for your puppy 8-14 weeks old.
