Last week the puppies began to spend a lot of time outside during the day.  

Puppies are all very steady on their feet now and are getting really playful (especially with each other.  They are doing great with their potty training by using the potty area about 95% of the time.  When they don't use their potty area they are using their play area but have stopped eliminating in their sleep area completely.  We introduced them to a crate this last week and they choose to sleep in it about 85% of the time because it is  the only spot in their box with a soft pillow to lay their head. 

  Mom has already began to distance herself a little by spending less time in the box with them.  This time has gradually increased over this past two weeks and will continue to do so. Puppies have had their first barrier challenge this past week as well.  When they were really interested in their food I placed it behind a barrier so that they could use their problem solving skills to help work through problems or obstacles for the reward of food.We also used momma as an incentive as well.

 last week the puppies have began to learn and be shaped by other adult dog in the household.  They  began to teach them important dog manners.  Puppies went though their first fear period last week.  This period can last only an hour or a few days.  We will took extra care to be sure that if they exhibited any fear towards anything  we scaled back and individually helped them overcome those fears slowly.  We also began "Mandding" with the puppies.  Mandding is a behavior of the puppy sitting when he/she wants something.  Its a way for them to communicate with us in a polite way.  Its always best to have a dog approach you and sit (without being asked) rather than jumping up on you because they want something.  By the end of this week they will all have caught on and will begin expressing this very desirable behavior when they are approached by a human (as long as we have a treat. LOL)

We will give the puppies their first bath this week.   We will introduce them to a small wadding pool in this coming week with about 1" of water in the bottom.  Usually at first they act a little reserved but quickly warm up to the idea and start to romp around.  After their bath they will also have their first little mini grooming.  their back sides will get trimmed up to help keep them clean and the hair will be cut out of the corner of their eyes.  Puppies have gotten really fun to watch playing together.  

Week 6 is  is week 4 of the socialization period. Puppies have now learned to take food from my hand ad are beginning to "Mand".  Every time we feed the puppies we call them with a high pitch "here pup, "pup, pup, pup, pup, pup" similar to how you hear people call a kitty.  They now have a great recall down and will come any time I call out like this.  It is so important to have a good "recall" with a puppy to help keep them from truble.  This recall will transition to the dogs name once you have him/her in your home.

Puppies are all steady on their feet now and are starting to get a little playful.  They are doing great with their potty training by using the potty area about 75% of the time.  When they don't use their potty area they are using their play area but have stopped eliminating in their sleep area.  

This is week two of the socialization period. This week puppies will start on solids and begin the process of weening.  First we will being using puppy food soaked in water. By the end of the week they willl be eating the kibble dry and mom will begining to feed them less and less.  Mom has already started to distance herself a little by spending less time in the box with them.  This time will gradually increase over the next 2-3 weeks. Puppies will participate in their first barrier challenge this week.  Once they are really interested in their food I will place it behind of barrier of some sort so that they can use their problem solving skills to help work through problems or obstacles.

This past week they have all begun to toddle around really well and have become very vocal. We have introduced a new bed/sleeping area along with our new pee/pooping area to help start these little ones on a path to easier potty training. 

This week puppies leave the transitional period and will enter the socialization period.  During this time their ears open and they begin to hear.  We will start some sound protocols with them this week.  Some of those include listing to classical music, exposing puppies to common "upsetting" appliances such as the vacuum and blow dryer,  and doing some startle recovery exercises.  For startle recovery exercises we will randomly make sudden unusual noises that may startle the puppies ever so slightly to help shape their emotional responses.

Puppies are all doing great.  Everyones eyes have all now opened or are beginning to open. They are starting to move around a bit. Puppies are starting to get lots of handling. Handling by children  is a daily occurrence here at the Thompson household because we have a built in 4 year old to help socialize them.  

At two weeks of age the puppies leave the neonatal period and enter what is called the transitional period.  Traditional period is typically between days 14-21.  During this time we will begin to introduce them to a new novel item and or have a new experience daily.  These items and experience will help to build a healthy startle/recover/curiosity/and exploration cycle with the puppies to lay the foundation for a confident puppy. This week we will take a dermal nail trimmer to the puppies nails to begin to get them used to vibration and trimming of the nails.  These puppies will have a lifetime of grooming and will need to be handled by their feet and toes on a regular bases.  Doing these things with them early and using items like this that cause vibration regularly will help to start to set them up for success for their many groomings they will have.

Puppies are 1 week old and have all almost doubled their weight.  These first 3 weeks they grow so fast.

Momma is still doing most of the work right now feeding, cleaning, and keeping them warm and happy.  We are enjoying giving them short times of daily handling.     

 The puppies are entering their 2nd week of the Neonatal period.  When the puppies were 3 days old we started Early Nejaurological Stimulation (ENS). We will continue doing ENS until they are 16 days old.  ENS is a combination of different tests and stimuli that is designed to get your puppy comfortable being handled, desensitize him/her to discomforting touch, and get their brains working.  We preform a serious of test (for lack of better works) from handling the puppy upright, upside-down, on his/her back, tickling his/ her toes, and setting them on a cold surface.

Dotti started early labor yesterday evening and had her first puppy early this morning.  She delivered 9 healthy beautiful puppies in just under 3 hours.  She has settled in with all of her puppies nestled under her.   

The puppies have begun life and are in what is called the Neonatal period. Neonatal period last for two weeks.  During this time we pay close attention to the little pups to be sure they are thriving and growing.  Making sure everyone is eating and gaining weight.  Momma does most of the work right now and we just do a lot of observation.  Mom will tend to and care for her puppies instinctively and make sure all is well by keeping them fed, clean, and warm. We will begin stroking them and handling them right away to get them used to touching and handling as much as momma will permit.
