|I am a breeder and if I had my way, as I've said on these forums a million times, all my puppies would be born 6 months old!!! IMO, anything to be gained by getting a baby puppy is all lost in the process of housetraining and puppy nipping!!!
Seriously, unless there is absolutely NO socialization, very unlikely in a show home, there is virtually no difference in training or bonding or any part of raising a puppy. You will still have a couple of weeks getting to know each others schedule, but after that, it is ALL uphill with an older puppy.
You can begin training right away, unlike having to have that baby puppy wait until it's attention span is longer. Inoculations are finished so you can immediately visit parks and other places where dogs frequent and bladder and bowel control is there so you have much longer between nature calls.
