3C How to Shape Your Puppy into a SuperDog

Many more questions about choosing and raising a service dog puppy have been asked recently.

Stanley Coren has written three chapters dedicated to how you can create a superdog. Not specific to assistance dogs, but it is a very useful guide of things to consider and even included a schedule by life stage of what needs to be done. Very helpful guide if you are choosing and raising your own service dog!

Chapters 8, 9 & 10 Summary of Training/Socialization needed at various Life Stages on pages 180- 182
