Honestly, in well-bred temperamentally stable dogs, I don't see too much of a fear period. Normally when I see a traumatizing fear period, it is because the dog is very poorly bred or just unstable. The fear period is very widely talked about in my classes, but when I see an actual extreme fear period, I can be about 98% sure that it was a backyard bred shepherd that didn't have any thought put into its genetics.
