6 week old puppy update:

The puppies are 6 weeks old tomorrow, and we have introduced them to a crate which has a two-fold purpose in getting the puppies used to a crate, and it also stops their mom from being able to jump in to steal their food.  We ran into a "snag" in the weaning process where most of their food ended up being eaten by their mother and there wasn't enough left for the puppies no matter how many times we re-filled their dish.  So, the solution was to put the puppies in a crate that is the same size as their previous pen and their food is now all for them!

We have also introduced water as their mom's milk has dried up and they have learned to drink from a bowl very quickly!

Here are some photos of the puppies in the crate:

The puppies continue to be amazing at many things like being brushed, getting their nails trimmed, and also for getting their fur trimmed by their eyes and bum area.  They are very easy-going and their curious nature just makes them a joy!

At this stage, they are also doing well on their potty training and instinctively move over to their potty pad.  We have also given them a peek of the outdoors, but with all the snow we received and the frigid temperatures, so far, the puppies are not too impressed with outdoors.  But, we will keep getting them outside for the experience, and the paw butter (there will be some in your puppy starter kits) does help to protect their feet from the cold.  Here are a few pics of the puppies saying "eww" at the snow:

The puppies were dewormed again today and their weights are below:

" Charlie "

Weight:
2 pounds & 5.5 ounces

(Puppy # 1 Girl) Matched to the Knight Family

" Jack "

Weight:
3 pounds & 1/2 an ounce

(Puppy # 2 Boy) Matched to Emily De Luca & Family

" Luci "

Weight:
3 pounds & 4.5 ounces

(Puppy # 3 Girl) Matched to Erica De Luca & Family

We are working on teaching the puppies to sit, and they are doing a wonderful job!  With the small stature of this litter, we can't feed too many free-dried pieces of meat or they get "full" rather quickly!  They are only eating about 1/8 of a cup of a raw meat, canned food, and softened kibble mixture 3 times daily.

We have been feeding them 50% of ONE of the below meat varieties by Bold By Nature Raw:

 

Duck meat, duck bone, duck liver.

Pork meat, pork bone, pork liver, pork heart.

Turkey meat, turkey bone, turkey liver.

Lean Beef meat, beef bone, beef offal (lung, heart, liver), beef tripe.

 

Each variety has the follow vegetables:

 

 

Carrots, zucchini, collard greens, broccoli and kelp.

You can read more about each variety on Bold By Nature's website:

https://boldbynature.com/mega-dog/

And they get 50% of softened kibbles (Nutrience Prairie Red Sub Zero) https://nutrience.com/products/prairie-red-formula/

We recommend feeding a minimum of 10% raw/fresh food.

So far, the puppies favourites are the Duck and Pork.

We will sign off with a cuteness overload with a couple group photos of the puppies:
