MILLY & HARRY'S LITTER
ONE 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.

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.
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
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.
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 start your puppy coming when called as a group. We use the phrase:
Here pup pup pup
Four Weeks Old
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.

Puppy. Please follow his guidelines with your new puppy.
Five Weeks Old
Light Blue Collar and Black Collar are the Boys
5 Week s Old
The puppies themselves are now eating solid food several times a day and gradually being weaned of their dependency on Mom's milk. Puppies will still suckle ravenously when their mother returns and she will now often feed them standing up and only for a short time. They have been introduced to the shaver, and some sounds such as pans banging, crumpling paper and coming when called etc.
We love the gentle leader!
You can start from as young as 8 weeks by getting the puppy used to wearing a collar for periods of time. Teach leash walking as a fun game, anywhere from 10-12 weeks onwards, depending on the individual pup - but just don't expect too much too soon
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.
