This is when the pups start hearing, seeing and exploring their surroundings.

Later, as the pup grows, the cartilage starts to strengthen and eventually allows the pinna to stand up erect.

If you own a mixed breed dog, the only way to know if the ears will stay floppy or erect, is to just wait and see.

Well, not usually. Most training professionals strongly recommend against adopting two pups at the same time.

Just because you have two kids and they both want their own puppy doesn't mean you should get two pups.

You stand the best chance of raising well-trained and -socialized puppies one at a time.
