At the age of 11 weeks, the puppies are smack dab in the middle of their fear stage but clearly, a fear of heights was not in that is! Schnappster figured out where the direct sunlight is for the puppy playpen and crawled up on top of the crate to soak as much of it is as he could. That’s one smart cookie!
And when it comes to their other “fears” we have kept up the socialization by exposing them to more new people and additional new sounds and such. Getting them through this phase with consistency makes for confident Chihuahuas!
