just wanted to make sure I was on the right schedule for Leo. I know each pup is different and needs sleep at 8 weeks. A family member (aunt) has Leo's sister Roxy. She only sleeps for about 20 min. then plays. Leo plays and then sleeps for over an hour. So breakfast, outside time, playing 7am-10am. 10-11:30 sleep in playpen. Then he will up lunch, outside time, sleep for another hour to 2 hours. I have been keeping him up evening time for playing, so he goes to bed later.…Continue
Night one with Leo was so far so good. He was tired from all the excitement of bringing him home. He is doing well... sleep, play, potty. :)
The breeder says after 4 months, a trainer says 10 weeks or after second parvo. Vet says after all rounds of certain shots so back to the 4 months age. I had a class to go to on July 25th so almost 12 weeks old. Do I wait for another month almost Sept. or go for July 25th 7 sessions. Breeder says in home for 9 weeks to 4/5 months. Thanks!
I thought I would ask? The breeder let us know that 3 puppies did not make it. There were 10 in the litter and they are waiting to see how the others do over time. I don't know much about "why" she did say something about mother and milk, puppies not taking milk? Not sure if that is correct. I guess I will ask more questions next time I talk with her.
what advice would you give to a new puppy owner. What is the one thing that you wish you knew or would be helpful those 1st few months or year. I have read books and websites but any words of wisdom. :)
The breeder will have the puppies on Life’s Abundance. I believe this is something I order online. Are any of your doodles on this or stay on this type of food. And if you made a switch what type of dog food do you use and when was the gradual switch made.
We are excited to have a goldendoodle puppy in July. The puppies were born last week. We received a packet for puppy/dog care and it says to get litter and use it for a several weeks. We will use a trainer that we will be a service/therapy dog trainer. She said not to start with litter at all but to begin house training the day he/she comes home. I guess this is for nighttime? Litter at night so they can go. Trainer says outside even at night so training is easier on grass…Continue
