You bet! We've been very busy since our last post from the Vivi litter! These pups are really building their skills and trying out new things. The days seem to fly as we work on something new each day. . . here's a look at our full days at Snitker Goldens . . .
From practicing crate training (we're at two pups per crate now, working towards one!), to outside ventures, the training room, our first well-puppy checks, shots, microchips, bath time (we're almost ready for a big scrub-a-dub-dub at 8 weeks!), and more! . . . we're rounding out our experiences with rides in the vehicles, lead training (starts tomorrow!), new play equipment, and individual feedings and play experiences. Silas will be spending time with the puppies now, too, as we finish out our last 12 days!
Puppies are now divided into two smaller groups as we prepare to work individually with pups this week and get ready for going home. What a cutie-patootie bunch!
I guess this first group was pretty interested in their new puzzle. . . .but the second group was just. too. tired.
All those times of early dips in the warm water and seconds of the blow dryer really pay off! Puppies are relaxed and wagging during their first time in the grooming area - a simple bath at the big tub, and a quick clip at the oh-so-high grooming table. We like to do things in simple stages to reduce the anxiety that can be felt with some of the sights, sounds, and sensations of a new experience, especially with a full wash and groom. We'll be building on the pups' experiences today, as we head toward their final go-home bath coming soon!
And Easter Sunday. . . .we took the puppies out to the backyard before we flew kites. . . this was the first time on the "real" grass. A good time was had by all!
what a beautiful day to fly a kite. . . .
have a happy today!
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.
