As soon as must be separated from the pack that puppy is eight weeks and most reputable breeders will say at least 10 weeks. This lack of time socializing with his brothers means that the puppy will not develop the important skills of dogs. Similarly, the puppy who has not dealt with by people of three weeks about not mixing with them naturally.
4. The fall of the standard: a broad sense, and buy a puppy from a pet store and breeding, and then mean that you destroy the level of that breed because of the lack of concern with the previous breeder.
