over the next 3 weeks I will receive lots of emails asking about products and what to buy and not buy. I decided to add a page to my website to help with this information. It’s just a quick rough draft. I listed all the products we use with our own pups. I also listed most of the stuff we send home so you don’t duplicate. Or if you need to order again and need a duplicate. If you have any questions. Please let me know. At the bottom of the list is the nuvet vitamins. I swear by these. I didn’t in the past. It was not until the last year that I can really see the difference they make in the coats of my dogs. I consistently have used them for months now and I can see a difference.
its a typical morning. All my chores are done and I sit to drink my cold coffee. I open fb and scroll through the posts. Typical. I can’t tell you how many times I read this same post. Puppy is 12 weeks old and biting the kids. I see this same post every single day. First let’s address the issue of the kids. Your kids can not run and jump and carry on in front of pup then expect the pup not to react. The pup follows and does what the kids do. As a parent getting a pup is work for you. Expect the amount of time invested to be the same as if you gave birth to this pup. Yes as much as having a new baby in the house. Although maturity happens much faster. You still have to put the time in. Your kids are not the enforcer. They can help. But you have to teach both how to interact. You need the time to teach both. If you have no time please don’t get a pup. Next let’s talk about the pup. Look for a pup that is not mouthy. Biting on things. My biggest advise is a trainer. You send your kids to pre school. Then on to regular school. Your pup needs the same training. If you can’t dedicate the time to train at home then go to a class. The first 6 months is the most important. This sets your foundation. Before pup even comes home, find classes in your area. Price them. Select the option you can afford. Don’t wait till you have an issue. If you need me I’m always here to help. I like to start off with redirect with a toy. I always have a toy in my hand or close by. I redirect with a toy. But at a young age pups get bored. Don’t expect the pup to entertain them selves. You need to play with them. Teach them what is appropriate.
as soon as we start to have more personality I will post more. They are just getting mobile and playing with each other. Right now brown and purple are the largest. Visible you can see this. Pink and yellow the smaller ones. Red and green are just above the 2 smaller ones. I believe green will have a wavy coat. Pink possible. I believe Red is going to have curls. Beautiful cream curls. I’m going to post more pics this week of adults and colors so you can see the color difference. Brown looks like apricot curls. And purple too. Yellow has curls just not sure how curly yet. As the week goes by I will post more about coats and personality.
pups are up to 2-1/2 lbs. The 2 boys are very different. Brown is the largest and appears curly. He is a light apricot. Green is much smaller and appears to have a wavy coat and is darker apricot. The largest girl is purple. She appears curly and is light apricot. Pink is a light apricot. Yellow is the smallest and darkest. And Red will most likely be a cream. Pink seems the most outgoing so far. Rolling everyone when they get in her way. Brown is just fat and happy and lazy. Green talks the most and has a puppy bark when he gets lost or out of the group. Yellow stays curled up sleeping. Red prefers her side to sleep on and snuggles. Purple similar to brown is content to eat and stay in the same spot. Too much energy to move. The eyes are open and they are beginning to toddle around. You will see a big difference this week in movement. By the end of the weekend they will be trying to get out of the box. Moving around very well and talking a lot more.
