Out Into the World
Puppies were born after 61 days in utero with the ability to lift their head and dig their noses into mom's hair to nurse. Ears and eyes are still closed.
Puppies can move in circles and stay close to mom.
Ears and eyes open around day 13. After about 17 days, puppy's hearing and olfactory capacity is fully developed and opens up a new world of sounds and scents.
Around day 21, puppy will follow mom out of the den, if possible. Dad will play rough with puppy and puppy will learn to present her belly. Puppy will learn about fear and may start growling.
Puppy sleeps less and is more active.
Mom nurses less, and puppy tries dog food. The tail is used as form of expression. Puppy will move further away from the den and recognizes other dogs as "the same species."
Puppies playfully fight for food and hunt each other.
Puppies develop snapping, growling and raising hair in confrontation. Puppy learns about loosing and winning play fights. Mom starts weaning and now uses physical discipline. Dad doesn't share his food with puppies anymore. Puppies accept a pack leader.
Time to move into their new homes.
Puppy challenges leadership.
Puppies will use screaming in play fights as sign of submission. Smart puppies try to find different ways to get what they want. Play with other puppies gets rougher and more inventive. Puppy will accept strong pack leader.
Puppy will accept a spot in the pack order and will fully accept a leader. Some dogs only accept one person as leader, others accept several human leaders.
The second set of teeth will appear, which enables the dog to hunt bigger prey or eat bigger portions in less amount of daily meals.
Fear of new situations or different objects might arise.
Wild dogs stray further away from their pack.
Growth spurts occur rapidly.
Puppy might be more apprehensive, shy or easily tired at times. Changes in coat, from puppy to adult, are visible. Dogs mature sexually. A females first heat starts between 6 and 12 months of age.
Similar developmental stages were studied in North America at the same time (Scott and Fuller, 1965; Fox 1971.)
Time periods might slightly differ in various studies; individual stages remain the same.
