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.
Everyone is very curious and wants to be involved with whatever you’re doing. One of their favourite games is ‘who can catch me’ as they zoom around the house with an item hanging out of their mouth - or chase with my son Liam around the outside puppy pen!
Elodie is choosing to spend less and less time with the puppies. She is still currently feeding them, but it's once a day now and she is happy to sleep the whole night in our bedroom with us. 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 3 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 Wednesday the 14th.
They have been sampling some more food too... the pups have been eating dried fish treats, raw liver and salmon, as well as broccoli this week - tomorrow turkey necks and gizzards are on the menu.
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.

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.
