Yes it is advised to not take a pup from the litter before 8 weeks - some people think even this is too soon and prefer 12weeks. It's very important for the puppies' to socialise with their littermates and mother during this time. The foundation for bite inhibition starts with the litter (and mother) not to mention social development. Perhaps more people will give some info, but I thought I'd share a quick comment just in case this post is over looked with it being holiday season and all. Good luck
