1  WEEK OLD

Mom nurses her puppies quite frequently at this stage of growth.          Still blind and deaf, the puppies can only crawl around the whelping box, seeking warmth from the heating pad or MOM. Their pigment s starting to come in, as you may notice, and they are gaining weight quite rapidly now. Mom is getting lots of chicken, eggs, and beef in her food to keep up with the demand for milk.

Here Is The puppy food we will start your puppies on when they are weaned at around 4 weeks old. You will want to order it before you pick up your puppy

 TWO WEEKS OLD
Guess what. Our eyes just opened and we can see for the first time!
Mom leaves our whelping box more often now, checking on us time to time. She does not have to feed us as often, so she gets a break between feedings. We are starting to get up on all fours now instead of crawling around our whelping box. We still sleep most of the time. Our pigment is still coming in.

Unlike their eyes, which are functional but not fully developed, puppies are born deaf. They cannot hear until 3 weeks or so of age. During this initial 2 to 3 weeks, puppies are practically blind and deaf. they must navigate the whelping box using scent.

I am going to add weekly training clips  to help you prepare for your new puppy. These videos are a great training resource that you can find online.  Start these trainings as soon as you get your new puppy home.To go along with this one, you can add food/treat to your puppies food dish, while they are eating, to help them learn not to guard their food dish as well. 
THREE WEEKS OLD
Three Weeks Old:
At three  weeks, we are able to see, hear, walk. Our brains are still developing. We have had our nails clipped, had our first worming and have daily  interaction with people other dogs, cats and sounds in the household., and a soundtrack of various sounds, such as city sounds, thunderstorms, children playing etc.
 

We are getting hungry mom. Where are you!!!

Four Weeks Old

Socialization
While your puppy’s motor skills are still limited at four weeks old, he shows the beginnings of playful behavior through his various human and canine interactions. We help prepare your puppy for socialization as an adult. A common practice among breeders is a method called “tolerance training,” ENS, which is a way of handling the puppy to make him more tolerant of future handling from new people. This training can be especially helpful to prime for your puppy for contact with young children as well as adults. Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) is a process that introduces mild stresses to very young puppies in a controlled way. These stresses help stimulate the neurological system which improves the growth and development of the pup's immune system, cardiovascular system.

A Typical Day
A four-week-old puppy spends most of his time sleeping and eating, but the rest of the time is spent exploring! He can stand up, walk around, wag his tail and test out little puppy barks. He interacts with his littermates and learns about his place in the world as a pup. Your puppy is now being introduced to a puppy slurry to start the weaning process.

A Great Video on Feeding Your

Puppy. Please follow his guidelines with your new puppy.

Out of the whelping box and into our new pen with lots more room. New collars too, that feel kinda funny!

By five weeks old, the mother dog is spending more of her time away from her puppies. The puppies themselves are now eating solid food several times a day and gradually being weaned of their dependency on her milk. ... This is a key point in the development of the puppies' relationships with people.

SIX WEEKS OLD!

Your six week old puppy has seen some significant changes in their life, like learning to walk, gaining independence, and transitioning to puppy food. They are now ready for the next stage in life. Weeks six to eight are super important and will play a large role in how your pup perceives the human world. Your little one will be schooled on bite inhibition by their mother and littermates, further their socialization, and continue to explore their surroundings. When they finally leave the care of their mother, they will depend on you to show them the ropes.

 

We have already started  teaching your puppies to come as a group. It is important to start working with your puppy to learn this command.
Start your training in a slow, low-distraction environment, like inside your house. First, show your dog a toy or a treat, praise them as they are coming to you, then reward them. After a few repetitions, whenever your dog looks at you and starts to move towards you, add in your chosen verbal cue (come, here, etc.).

We recommend waiting 6 months before taking your goldendoodle puppy her first full clip down grooming. The wavy, curly adult coat will start replacing the soft, fluffy puppy coat around 5-7 months of age.You will want to take your goldendoodle to the groomers every 6 to 8 weeks to prevent painful matting and to keep your doodles coat looking great.
