Pup Development > Puppy Growth Stages

There are 7 distinct stages of growth for a puppy, during each of these periods it is important to know how the puppy develops mentally as well as physically. The stages are typically broken down like this:
  1. Newborn to 3 weeks
  2. 3 - 7 weeks (much happens during the 3rd week so I have separated it)
  3. 7 - 12 weeks
  4. 12 - 16 weeks
  5. 4 - 8 months
  6. 8 months - 1 year
  7. 1 year - 18 months
Here are a few things that apply to all puppies:
Born Blind
Born Deaf
Born Toothless
Born not being able to produce it's own body heat
Will cry, whine, grunt, or make any number of noises when they are hungry, cold, uncomfortable, or just plan not happy.
