Implications of Weaning Age for Dog Welfare – CRONEY RESEARCH GROUP

Weaning is an important stage in dog development, and maximizing the welfare of dams and their offspring can promote adult dog well-being. During the weaning process, puppies begin consuming semi-solid food at around three weeks of age, and they typically are separated from their dams between six and eight weeks of age for re-homing. This coincides with a stage in puppy development that involves critical learning and has long-term implications for behavioral wellness as adults. To optimize the well-being of puppies as well as adult dogs, it is essential to consider the weaning ages and practices used as well as their relationship to developmental processes.
