Default age to bring puppy home

most breeders will tell you that the ages between 8 to 10 weeks is the best time to bring puppy home never before 8 weeks

I think when to let a pup go should be based on breed and individual personality and maturity level of the puppy. I personally wouldn't let a pup go during the fear period (about 8 weeks.) I think it's important for pups to have stability, routine and familiararity (sp) during the fear period and switching homes provides none of that. But, I do know many, many good breeders that let pups go at 8 weeks, I just wouldn't do it myself. My pups won't leave before 10 weeks.
