The puppy: 7 to 9 months.
From 7 months to 9 months
By the seventh month the replacement of teeth is over, but he is still curious and loves to play. Hikes can go longer, but still you must be careful not to let he jump too much or make sharp turns because her joints and muscles are finishing to form and may cause injury. Seize these walks to her lessons of obedience, which can be long and demanding.
The greater understanding and appreciation acquired at this age should complement the skills learned by the puppy and help he grow and develop, and to prevent him from getting bored.
After 8 months, the puppy can leave the food for growth, since the growth rate is reduced structure having nearly reached its adult size. Once the puppy has learned the basics of discipline you can teach him obedience exercises, such as walking with or without strap, changing direction, speed changes, positions (standing, lying or sitting), the immobility, call (very important), group work to develop sociability with humans and other dogs, etc.. The authority is part of the necessary references to the balance of the dog. But while the dog must obey his master, should not fear.
With nine months our puppy has already entered the adolescence, can be bold and start showing some undesirable behaviors, such as jumping jump on some other people, pulling on the leash or order things insistently. It must react quickly to these behaviors with systematic instructions clear, firm voice.
