Nine Weeks Old
Nine Weeks Old ️
We have had a good week here, the pups have been making new friends as I start to let them socialise with our adult and young dogs that live here.
Most of the puppies now have an owner! We love knowing which puppy will be going to each family on the waiting list - if you have decided a name for your pup and haven't told us so far, do let us know as we can start to use their name when training. Exciting times ahead!
Autumn is choosing to spend less and less time with the puppies. She is still currently feeding them, but it's once or twice a day now. Generally she chooses to be away from them during the day and definitely while there is activity around the rest of the house. She has been so wonderful with her pups and I have loved watching her over the weeks feed and care for her babies as well as play and teach her litter what is acceptable or not.
The pups are now having their last dose of Panacur wormer (tonight was night 2 of a 3 day course) with us and will have a faecal sample test when they are 10 weeks old, this is for everyone’s reassurance. The puppies also have their final health check and DHP vaccination with our vet on Friday the 21st.
They have been sampling some more food too... the pups have been eating dried fish treats, raw liver and training paste, as well as other types of raw vegetables.
We are a huge advocate of the raw diet! We strongly believe that all dogs should be fed a ‘species appropriate’ diet with as much natural and fresh food as possible.
We would love for you and your family to sit and watch a documentary regarding pet food called “Pet Fooled”. You can find this documentary on Netflix and Amazon.
Please click on the video below to watch the trailer.
We understand the importance of healthy, fresh food for us as humans and it is only right that we do the same for our beloved member of the family.
The puppies will leave us with about 7 / 10 days worth of food and vouchers to help you on your way. We highly recommend that you stick with the diet and treats that the puppies are used to here with us for a minimum of 4 weeks to help prevent a very common condition for puppies called stress colitis.
