These little guys are moving around like they’re inebriated and *trying* to play with one another — but all movements are in slow motion and it always makes me giggle. I call it the “drunken sailor” stage… slowly wobbling everywhere and making lots of incoherent noise. Lol! However, there is nothing slow about them when mama walks by or enters the whelping box… they turn into little piranhas at meal time and scurry over for a spot at the milk bar! Ha! We saw our first tail wags and they are beginning to find their voices and try “real” barks. It’s too cute!
We have only 1 spot left on this litter’s reservation list.
Below are updated photos and weights at 3 weeks old.
CURRICULUM: This week we started our 10-step handling exercises and continued daily weights. I also have started conditioning them to different sounds they may be exposed to — specifically loud, sudden noises. They are currently at the age where they do not yet fear sound, so we are jump starting their desensitization to it. My goal is to slowly and safely condition them to many different scenarios they may encounter as they grow. You can watch a video of the handling exercises from our first litter by clicking HERE. We do this because my relationship with them is their first relationship with a human, and it’s critical I make it a positive one — so gentle and safe is key! Late in the week, if their teeth start erupting, I’ll introduce them to puppy mush (blended and liquified puppy food).
