MILLY"S LITTER
 

Due to the Corona Virus and its high level of activity projected by the CDC:   

 In these perilous times, in order to protect  all concerned, We  are going to need to employ exceptional measures and have families choose their puppies Online.

We have people coming from various States to pick up their puppies, and want to protect all families, as well as our dogs and puppies, from possible exposure to the Coronavirus.

 

We will feature each puppy  with video interaction, with us, and a write up about each puppy. Pictures etc.. once the puppies are 6.5 weeks old. This will be besides the videos we post weekly.

Each family will choose their puppy from the MILLY'S PUPPIES  Page of our website.

  Each puppy will have a different color collar to identify them by.

I will start this process when the puppies are 6 weeks of age. 

I will give each family a time/date to choose their puppy by. 

This will be in the order of deposit picks.

 I will answer questions by phone , or email to help you choose your puppy, during this time if needed.

I will also post info about what is in the puppy folder and other info. etc as well.

When families come to pick their puppy and puppy folder, we will meet you with your puppy  when you arrive, along with your puppy folder.

You can post your questions by email or by phone before or after you pick up your puppy, as well as when you pick up your puppy.

 

That being said,

I do plan for families to be able to pick up their puppy on the 26th of May, that are able to. All puppies should be chosen by then.

 

This is a highly unusual way for us to have families adopt our puppies and we do apologize.

Thanks for  bearing with us and help us through this process so that everyone stays safe through this difficult time.

    The Three Females

ONE  TO TWO WEEKS 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. Their eyes will start to open at 2 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:
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.

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.

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
The 2 lighter puppies and yellow color are females
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.).

Make sure your puppy is getting enough rest (12 hours per day). Have lots of great chew toys around to get her through teething (frozen wet rags, Teething toys.  Don't leave kids and dogs unattended. Teach kids not to run and scream from nipping puppies but to quietly walk away or stop moving

Due to time constraints, I was unable  to do the Volhard Puppy testing. Instead I am posting pictures of 2 puppies at a time with info about each puppy
