Episode 2: Puppy Secrets: The First Six Months

Summary

The puppies leave their litters behind and move to their new homes with their new owners. Collie puppies Jack and Jill are chosen by one of Britain's top sheepdog trainers, and Neave is picked to train as an assistance dog to help change the life of a disabled person. As the puppies approach six months, there is an update on how well they have taken to their training in this crucial stage of their development.

Review

The puppies are all adjusting to their new homes and environments as well as forming a bond with their new owners. It can be a stressful time on both sides. As vet Dr Mark Evans tells us, a dog’s life experiences at this point shape their character and personality.

Apparently we underestimate how much fun puppies need to have (cue shots of adorable puppies play-fighting, chasing and tumbling over their own paws), although they also need proper training – especially if they’re working dogs like border collies Jack and Jill or assistance dog Neave. You won’t learn much about puppy training or canine behaviour. But who cares? These puppies are so cute.
