Have you ever wondered how the canines in your family pick “their person.” Dogs don’t always choose the person who is the primary care giver. Sometimes it’s aunt Tina or your neighbor Jim who is always at your house. Dogs have what’s called a key socialization period which lasts from birth until about 6 months. This explains why puppies always remember their breeder. I’ve had puppies come back for a visit years after they have gone to their forever homes, only to have them jump all over and pee on me because they are so excited. I’m not sure there is any one way to figure out how dogs choose “their person” but positive association has much to do with it. This article will explain things a bit more if you are interested. Have a safe and awesome Memorial Day weekend.
