In the wee morning hours, Elise's pups 'n I were spending some quality time together . . . lots and lots of handling. . . . these babes just finished their breakfast with Mom, and were nestling in with me. One by one, puppies are turned over, talked to, and caressed. Muzzles and front feet are still a little damp from breakfast and back toes are a freshly marked with fingernail polish (for identification). A few pups took to sleeping before their polish was dry, so we have a few colorful bellies this morning. :)
We're also working on sound socialization. One of the ways we do this is by using a sound socialization CD. We also have periods of time with radio and television (and silence too!) We'll be starting with making sounds this week, too - pans, vacuums, rattling, crackling, and squeaking toys. . . .the list is endless with all the sounds we can make. What the sound socialization CD helps to provide are those sounds we can't imitate - like the city, sirens, crying babies, etc. So we're well on our way!
Here's a few more images taken early this morning:
That's all for now! We'll update again soon!!
Why Snitker Goldens
We begin with quality tested and approved breeding Goldens and build on that solid foundation with our puppies. Championship pedigrees in their lines are our way of remaining true to breed standard. We strive to personally imprint each pup with positive, rewarding experiences – to nurture each one with love and care, realizing that each day we have your puppy is one day closer to the day you will hold him or her. We use this time to make that permanent impression on your pup, one which he or she will carry for a lifetime.
