The Puppy Challenge - Phase 2?

I have been working on the original "Puppy Challenge" with my pup. I tweaked it a smidge to fit her and kept weekly record of her progress. I was wondering if there is/will be a Phase 2 of the Challenge. I'd certainly be interested in participating in another one. I just don't know what to include and I am sure there are more "experienced" GSD owners that would have better recommendations for the objectives.

Hellloooooo Out there......

Does anybody have ideas for what could be included in a Phase 2 of the Challenge? I am thinking about the 4-8 months stage of puppyhood.

Re: The Puppy Challenge - Phase 2?

I just posted all the stuff we've done with Jake on the original puppy challenge. There was a lot.

I'm also wondering what we need to do now that he's older. I imagine we should continue to expose him to all sorts of people, animals, places, and sounds. It might be nice to come up with a checklist of all the things they should be exposed to.

Anyone have any ideas?
