1 week old – Early Stimulation Exercises

The puppies continue to nurse and sleep most of the time. Their eyes and ears won’t open for another week, but this week we began their “puppy exercises”. They are entering the “baked potato phase” where they are starting to plump up quite nicely. We are starting to see pigment fill in and we’re seeing nice coats developing. View the slideshow and read the captions to learn more. Watch the video to learn how we introduce Early Neurological Stimulation (aka puppy exercises) to give our pups an advantage that should benefit them for life.

The birth day and first vet visit

Holly and Romeo’s puppies came just one day early and without much fan fare. She always seems to make things appear to be “routine”, and her recovery after giving birth is just amazing. She is a very attentive mommy. The pups will have their dew claws removed this week and then Linda will begin working with each one as they experience their daily puppy exercises. Other than that, they will just eat, sleep and gain weight.
