First, congratulations on your new fur-member! With patience and consistent training, you will develop a bond with your Siberian Husky or Doberman Pinscher puppy. Where the puppy will be a best friend for life. 

Most puppies follow some common life stages. We will go from birth to 12 months old. 

Birth to 3 weeks old: 

During this life stage, your puppy is mostly influenced by their mother and siblings. They are always eating and sleeping. So they already have their touch and tase sense in place. However, starting from 2 to 3 weeks old their eyes will start to open, baby teeth break out, and they develop their hearing and sharp sense of smell. 

4 to 6 weeks old:

The Husky or Doberman puppy starts to learn how to sit up straight and walk. Once they master walking they start to play with their siblings and interact with the humans. At 5 weeks to 6 weeks old their personalities tend to show.

7 weeks to 3 months old:

At 7 weeks old, your puppy will be ready to leave the breeder, his/her mother, and littermates. By this time, they have developed social skills and physical coordination. They may show signs of fear, so give them lots of positive training to help them overcome it. The reason they are scared is due to the fact they have left everything they know and stepped into the unknown. They are in a new house, new family, new everything. So this is normal. 

3 to 6 months old:

This is where your Siberian Husky or Doberman Pinscher puppy start to teeth. They will likely feel the need to chew a lot to relieve the irritation in their gums. Provide lots of acceptable chew toys to avoid chewing on the household items.

6 to 9 months old:

Puppies start to show sexual behavior. So this is the perfect time to schedule an appointment to neuter or spay your puppy. 

9 to 12 months old:

The puppies still have more growing to do physically. However, large breeds will continue to act more like puppies until about 18 months old. Pups from smaller breeds will have socially matured by about 12 months old.
