documented imprinting stage for a dog spans the of age.
The most crucial period is from eight to sixteen weeks of
age. It is critical that the dog be exposed to live birds,
the field, and basic consistent structure and socialized
with other dogs during this period for the dog to maximize
its full potential. When a dog in the imprinting stage is
properly exposed to structure and the elements of field
work he becomes more receptive to learning. Such a dog
will become not only a better companion but also a better
bird dog for the hunter.
A dog that has been exposed to critical environmental
factors during the imprinting stage has a mind that is open
to learning and it is a joy to work with such a dog. We are
dog trainers. Letting us prepare your young dog for his
future training with you and having us take care of the
necessary foundational prerequisites is money well spent. Do
it right from the start. Then spend time with us and
formulate a plan for the direction to take with your dog.
