Puppies at this age are like “babies.” They have boundless energy and curiosity. They spend most of their day playing as well as learning the foundations to being a dog: chasing, running, pawing, biting and fighting. Their enthusiasm for life and its surroundings can be exhausting, but this is also the perfect time to start thinking about a puppy care and training plan.
Puppies at this age may still have a lot of playful energy. But they are also starting to test their boundaries. Like teenagers, they may seem to “forget” the rules or commands that they once followed. This is normal developmental behaviour for puppies in this juvenile phase. Some of this behaviour may be due to teething as puppies begin to lose their first set of teeth around 3-4 months of age.
You may notice that your puppy likes to play-fight with other dogs around this age. This is how puppies start to identify where they fit in with a group. This is normal behaviour. It’s also around this age when some puppies show fear. If your puppy does show fear, it’s best to ignore the behaviour and build his confidence through training.
While your puppy may now look like a full-grown adult dog, he’s still a puppy. At this age you might see a burst of puppy energy and continued boundary testing. That’s why it’s important to make sure your puppy still gets plenty of structured play and exercise. Continuing with training and socialization with other dogs is also essential at this age.
As your puppy nears age one (up to two years for a large breed), he’s beginning to look and act more mature. He will probably still be very playful, but by now he’s learned the ropes and is much better at following the rules.
A puppy's first 12-24 months of life are a crucial time in their growth and development. To keep your puppy active and energy levels high, it is important to plug the immunity gap which happens during the first 5 months of age. And it is also essential to feed your pup a diet specifically designed for his age.
