Don't exactly know the answer to your question though I've heard not till at least six months old. I just recently received an 11 week old male. If you haven't done any reading on the breed I highly suggest 'How to Help Gun Dogs Train Themselves' by Joan Bailey. I ordered from Amazon.
Good Luck

I put them on by probably 4 months old. You don't have to use it, just get them used to it. I found in the house you can correct chewing problems quickly with one on. Just give light stimulation and they will leave whatever it is alone.

What breeding is your pup from?
