Sensory Response

The earliest sensory perception that a pup develops is the sense of smellPups are likely to imprint on the scent of the breeder caretaker at a very young ageGently press your nose face-to-face with the pup's nose and breathe normally either through your nose or mouth for 30 seconds using a second hand on a watch to time the behaviors below: 

                                   1)  At which second did the pup lick you, if at all?

                                   2)  If pup did lick, how many times during the 30 seconds?

                                   3)  Did any puppies not lick you?
