I have gotten a couple puppies when they were 12 weeks and it was perfect, just those extra 4 weeks away , gave me less time housebreaking, no 2 am potty breaks , it was pretty beneficial.
I know this original thread is a few days old, but I would also adhere to the waiting until atleast 8 weeks..I'm not thrilled with breeders who release puppies at 6 weeks.
Even at 8 weeks, a puppy has the attention span of a gnat,,I usually let them just be puppies at that age, work on 'come', and really basic stuff like sit maybe down..
You can't expect perfection out of young puppies..And at 6 weeks, you are going to be doing ALOT of outside potty breaks 24/7...It just isn't good for puppies to be out on their own that young in my opinion..
