Water Playtime

Filed under: Litter Diaries — klewis @ 10:53 pm

This is what we did with the puppies today!  They took turns 2 by 2 having some playtime in the water.  This helps them to realize water is fun, and makes grooming/bath time when they’re older much easier if they’re not stressed about it.  Also, many of our doodles LOVE swimming, and we think it is because of this early exposure to water that teaches them it’s normal, and fun!

The puppies were introduced to a toy today that made all sorts of noises. Some were climbing on it and others kept pushing the buttons with their noses!

The puppies had a burst of energy after eating so they decided to play and pose for the camera!

Puppy Training

Filed under: Litter Diaries,Uncategorized — klewis @ 7:21 pm

Today the puppies are 20 days old and we started the Precocious Puppy Program! They were lured into sits, turns, and up. Some took to it rather quickly and others were asking why we woke them up from their afternoon nap. These exercises are done twice daily to develop their problem-solving abilities, mental agility and mental coordination.

Little Visitors

Filed under: Litter Diaries — klewis @ 3:59 pm

The puppies had two little visitors yesterday. My nieces have been dying to come over and see the puppies, they always love it when we have a litter here! They are great kids for the puppies to meet because they are so gentle, and talk softly to them. A great experience for the puppies to learn kids are fun.

Later today we’ll be having Lindsey come over for their 2 week photo shoot! They will also be meeting 3 more new people this afternoon. :)

A few of the puppies eyes opened today!! Currently they’re still mostly just eating and sleeping, but they are getting more mobile and soon they will be very aware of their environment! By 20 days old all of their eyes will be opened and their ears will fully hear!
