far as development, they are scooting around and beginning
to build there muscles, they lift the head and look towards
We are now putting them on different textured blankets, this
stimulates the nerves in there feet and skin. To enhance balance,
and play. We also tickle them and scratch there butts, to
get a little more personal with them, to enhance a bonding
emotion in them young.
are also altering the lights, we had a soft light in the room,
for the development of the eyes, were now switching once a
day to an energy saver bulb, which isn't as hard a common
bulb, when there eyes open we wont use ether for three days
and just let some natural light flow in, then we will go to
soft bulb for a day then the energy saver bulb switch again
for at least a week. This well help them be able to focus
there eyes quicker. It also enhances night vision, and makes
the eyes with proper deit very healthy, long term.
THREE & FOUR
this time we aren't focusing on the development,
we are only focusing on the socializing,
they have just opened there eyes, and we want the eyes as
there ajusting to see us, we give them tons of petting, and
rub our fingers around the cheeks to get them to play a bit
with us, there ears are opening too so we have started calling
them by name.
Now is the time to mail your puppy's toy! That you carry around for a few days, the puppy will familiarize your scent with the toy and when he or she sees you they will wrap there little paws around you!
are socializing, and working with the eyes, getting them to
follow and look in different directions to strengthen the
eye muscles, we are also grooming them so they don't have
to look through the fur, the fur causes there eyes to be opposite
of cross eyed, our pups are corrected at this young age to
have normal looking and functioning eyes, PLEASE keep there eyes groomed once you have them so our work
isn't for nothing.
Next Week we will be starting up the senses stimulus.
The Hair has just started to grow, and
the puppies have just started to play, they also have just
started to eat, we only give them smashed up beef stew at
this time so its like a thick liquid made from peas, carrots,
beef and water cooked overnight.
During this week we also bring in the litter box, We introduce the litter box this week then puppy pads around six weeks, However its still hit and miss, some get it right away, some don't by the time you bring them into your home, but we give you all the necessary information to ether pad, litter box, out door or leash train them, so when they come into your home you can finish what we have started.
Please note: The
eye exercises are not to clear a genetic defect from our lineages,
our lineages come from healthy dogs.
But are actually something I had come up with.
My sons had lazy or crossed eyes as babies, doctor Siegel
from pacific eye institute had shown me exercises to do with
them to correct this. When I volunteered at the human centers
before I even had these dogs I noticed the way furry dogs
had developed an opposite look to the crossed eyes. Due to
looking around there fur. This has developed over years and
years of breeding the fuzzier dogs in many breeds.
Well I didn't like it and thought if I kept the face groomed
and did the eye exercises dr Siegel showed me for my children
I could correct it. Come to find out not only dose it correct
it, but if you do it while they are young, they grow to have
gorgeous eyes, ( See
my photo page ).
Once you receive a puppy the exercises are no longer needed,
just keeping the face groomed.
are Working on the floppytizing, working
on the eyes and
working with the senses, We give them different taste of safe
organic foods, such as honey, Banana Chips, beef broth, beef
soup paste (home made), and other foods, just a drop. This
well give them a strong gut able to also absourb a a variety
of nutrients. We are also now taking them to the yard, there
eyes are adjusting to sun light, and we are giving them different
things to smell, flowers, bugs, our cat, grass, rocks ex..
We are working on motor skills, and listening skills,
we have them run up and down stairs with us. and follow the puppy noise. We also hide and yell puppy so they can find us. we also use a cream rub on the feet, but theres no real reason except they like it, it may have its benefits to the pads.
the puppies are very active now, and the hair is coming in.
They are also teething on pig ears and beef sticks.
Potty Training Using puppy Pads, and playing out side one hour after feedings. Fun and games. They learn action words like Wanta
Go, Puppy, and a few others which we have been doing, but
besides that it all about the human bond.
From here out we do photos through email by request, From this point on the development is the same as this week, and as a single mom running cub scouts, raising puppies and children, and the community involvements and fosters and other tasks and projects, i just need a bit of a rest, updating takes at least four hours, Mondays are hectic as it is, but i have no problems sending a photo, also depending on development of the puppy some local pick ups are at the end of eight weeks, so just about nine weeks old. so this time is busy, due to prepping for transfer, We need to keep the puppy separated from the pack for a day, so being away from mom isn't as painful, also they need a last deworm, and pest control for the ride home as well as a bath and fluff and the package preparement.
Please Keep your new
puppy's development in mind!
We supply you with TONS of information on CD with your puppy
package, We also supply you with life time support for any
reason at all! So you have more then enuf to continue working
on your puppy's development, please please do so, we put alot
of work into these guys and love them very much, please continue

The Teddy Bear breed has a waddley walk to its structure,
in some cases if the dog becomes highly over weight, in its
older ages the dog may need knee surgery. So please feed your
new puppy right. its is rare, but its best to feed them right
anyhow. Alot of problems can arise if a dog becomes overweight,
or is unhealthy for any reason.
Please note: these dog do not tend to become overweight, they
are active dogs, but in any dog as they become older they
lose there level of activity and if your feeding them tons
of human junk food as with any dog they well become over weight.
Also Keep them Active! Walk and
play with your new puppy. A dog can become depressed if forgotten,
and its just unhealthy all together. Please take care of your
new puppy, we are here for you life long for any questions,
so please don't hesitate! We care about all puppies, so even
if they aren't ours please don't hesitate to call or email
