Bringing home a puppy at 7 weeks vs 8 weeks
Hi there, I'm just wondering about bringing home a puppy at these two different points in time 7 vs 8 weeks and wondering in those last stages the reason behind it.
I know the general consensus is 8 weeks, and from what I've read they learn bite inhibition from their littermates during that last week. Is that correct?
Also, I've seen some breeders that do the deworming but give the option of starting the first shots with your own vet if you'd prefer. Is this standard? Would it be a better option to take them to someone you know from the beginning?
Thanks in advance!
