As we hit the 5-week mark, these pups are MOVIN'! Playful, playful puppies. They are cuddlers and players, both. And we just finished installing K9Grass, and wow, do the pups ever like it! Thanks to Matt and crew at ForeverLawn in Ohio. You guys are great!
And the puppy pen inside has changed THREE times in the past week. . . here's a look at the progression. . . (Well on our way to housetraining - keeping surfaces clean 24/7!) Great Job Oakley puppies!!
By this time, our puppy areas have transitioned a total of SIX times. From whelping pad, to enlarged chip pen, to larger chip pen, to hard play/sleep surface, to LARGER play/sleep surface, to LARGEST sleep/play space. And in the stage while we introduce the play/sleep space 24/7, we ADD the outdoor turf area for puppies to run off their legs and play, and be introduced to other activities.
THIS WEEK: We'll add some trips to the backyard on the real grass. (And begin crate training, too!)
NEXT WEEK: We'll add the training room.
And from there. . . . just wait and see! In our Puppy Enrichment Program, we continue to add opportunities for learning and skill-building in addition to regular group and individual handling. These puppies are ALWAYS learning!
We are turning the corner, so-to-speak, for our Oakley Families. . . .we are over the half-way point and your puppies have been learning behavioral skills this week. . . specifically the no-biting or mouthing. And they are doing GREAT! Pups spend less time with Mamma, as they're being weaned, and LOTS of time with us humans. . . next week, these babes will spend time with their dad, Goose, and with our big guy, Silas. This is always a fun time to see them interact with other Goldens. So until next week. . . We're getting closer, Oakley Families!
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.
