They is Honey's first litter and we love the pairing we are expecting with Maverik! We will have mostly solid puppies and a couple of abstract/white marked puppies with these parents. Honey is adorable and has the perpetual look of a puppy. She has passed all canine good citizen classes and is as sweet as her name.
Her family adores her!
Maverik is one of our favorites and he passes his easy going temperament and thick good looking coat to his babies.

Honey's babies are growing up! This has been a big couple of week for these little guys. They learned to use the dog door to go potty in record time--we only had the paper tray in their dog door pen with them for a few days. They are all running in and out whenever they need to go! They almost completely have their teeth including their molars. They are doing well eating hard crunch puppy food. Honey still nurses a couple of times a day and she spends quite a bit of time with them teaching puppy manners. It's pretty fun to watch. If one of the babies is being pushy or keeps 'asking' to nurse after she's told them no she will just rip them over and pin them to the ground until they settle down. It's fun to see a good mama teach her babies the rules of the dog world, She helps shape self-control, bite inhibition and dog interaction rules.
This week we will have vet checks and we will work on having each puppy start taking treats individually to learn to sit and pay attention to the humans in their world in order to get what they want. They will keep growing and practicing their exploring skills on each other!
The pups are just past 4 weeks old. They are really enjoying their time with the kids in the house and they are all great with being held and snuggled. They are just starting solid foods. They are starting to use the paper tray to go potty in one area--we use their natural instinct to keep their bed clean to help direct them where we want them to go potty. Most of the pen is covered with paper and then once they get used to the paper we can make the paper space smaller and increase their sleep and play space. Next week we will introduce the dog door and they will gradually switch from using the paper tray to using the dog door to go potty outside. The puppies have new people and new toys introduced every day and they are all really quick to adjust and respond to new situations which is just what we like to see.

The babies just passed their 3 week mark and they are all doing great! The babies are all walking around really well. Tomorrow we will introduce 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. In the beginning we have one soft bed area and the rest of the pen is potty area. We use the puppies' natural instinct to keep their bed clean to help with potty training--the minute they step off their bed to go potty they will be in the desired area. Once they are accustomed to use the paper/grate area for potty we will be able to make their play/sleep area bigger.
This week puppies will leave the transitional period and will enter the socialization period. During this time their ears open and they begin to hear. The puppies live in our living room so they are naturally exposed to a variety of noises that will help them adjust to family life: TV/movies in the background, children playing, vacuums running etc.are all familiar sounds to these babies. Over the next we will also work on 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. We watch closely to make sure there isn't a fear response and if necessary we will work with individual puppies more gradually to help them adjust to the noises.

The babies are two weeks old. They all have their little eyes open and are starting to toddle around. Their ears will open in the next week and they will get better and better on their little legs. Honey is a patient and super attentive mom. The babies are at Honey's Guardian family home and getting lots of attention from Honey's three little human kids! More pictures coming!

Honey has babies! She delivered four little ones on Friday, April 23. Her labor was so easy and smooth that she literally slept through most of it! I've never seen a first time mom so completely relaxed during delivery! She is doing great as a mama and spends her time nursing and snuggling her babes. She and the babies are at their guardian's home here in Twin Falls and will stay there until it's time for the babies to move to the toddler area. They are getting lots of attention from Honey's 'kids'--two girls and a boy who adore the babies. At this stage the babies are still developing physical and neurological pathways--they can't see or hear and they are still developing their ability to regulate body temperature and elimination. They will gradually develop more each day and will open their eyes and start to walk at about two weeks old. We will keep pictures and video updated!
