You need to get her around other puppies and dogs on a regular basis ASAP. I brought home a pup at 5wks and I could not have raised him without the help of my other four dogs.

Teaching a soft mouth is a HUGE concern also reactivity has been linked to dgos leaving mom way to early...

Iam in Socal as well, its definetly illegal to sell a pup that young...is this a toy breed? If so they need to stay with mom/litter until 10-12 weeks.

Not trying to sound like a downer but you have just created a TON of work for yourself and your dog still may not develop normally.

Yeah, other dogs and puppies are great for socialization (on the dog side) and bite inhibiton. That's good what your son is doing too (about the nipping), it should help.

West Virginia, Mikey.

I googled it but didn't see any laws on it in WV. Also, do you mean sell, or adopt, or what?

gotcha..

you don't need to worry about them being gentle as much as them being TOOO gentle....the purpose of socializing them with other dogs is so they learn boundries...the older dogs need to give her constant feedback as to when too much is too much...if they aren't giving her feedback, then you need to find other dogs that will...

do they play with her at all?

Doesn't matter if you adopt, pay money, purchase or what you call it No dog should be separated from mom until eight weeks OR in West Virginia-seven

Hmm, that's interesting. Didn't know that!
So would that have made it illegal for me to own her or for him to give her away?

Obviosly not the best age to separate for sure! makes it a little more work than normal, lol.
