This past week, the puppies were introduced to “mush” to help Teddie Kate out with feeding since teeth have erupted! They figured out really quickly that this new food tastes so good! The mush is a blended version of puppy food, probiotics, pumpkin, and goat’s milk.
I’ve also been adding each day “novelty” items (unassuming and gentle) into their whelping box for exposure and awareness. These pups live in our front living room, so they also hear the daily sounds of a full and busy household.
Curriculum & Care: Today I began the 5 day process of deworming the pups (& mom!) to begin protection against potential parasites and I will continue daily exposure activities with different items such as bubble wrap, stuffed toys/ropes/etc., and even balance boards. I’ll also continue the 10 daily handling exercises and sound exposure and increase their “mush” feedings to 2-3 times a day.
- 10-step handling exercises include:
- 1. Rub ears
- 2. Cover eyes
- 3. Open mouth and run fingers on gums
- 4. Rub belly in circular motions
- 5. Run hand down back
- 6. Run hand and fingers along tail
- 7. Touch all paws
- 8. Tap nails
- 9. Run fingers around next & under collar/ribbon
- 10. Touch their nose
