YouTube For Week 6

The weather has been delightful and puppies are enjoying the warm sun and play times. The puppies are less reliant on mothers’ milk but still enjoy it if they can latch on. Suzie has started to wean them however, it is a slow process over the next two weeks. Hope you enjoy the quick video.

 

 

Week 6 Extra Photos

The puppies are a pleasure to be with now. Real time-wasters as they play and enjoy the antics of more awake time. Pot plants have been destroyed, leaves striped off near by plants and all things become toys of amusement, that is how it is in a day of play.

Week 6–Vet Check–ALL CLEAR

Puppies were bathed and shampooed for the Vet Check held today. All puppies have been physically examined by the senior partner (Dr Graham Parsons) in the local Veterinary Surgery in Glen Innes and all puppies are declared in good health and body condition.

Puppies have been vaccinated and micro-chipped and the documentation supporting this will be provided in the folder which you will receive on the delivery of your pup.

Some snaps of the puppies after their bath yesterday.

You can notice that all the coats are developing a wavy appearance. The texture is soft and thick.

Puppies are running everywhere and it was necessary to wait for them to tire before videoing. Hope to improve on this in the future.

 

Hope you enjoy this weeks look at the puppies.

Week 5 Photos

Photos this week will happen on Saturday 10th August instead of Wednesday 7th August. Sorry about the short delay. The puppies are on the move now exploring and venturing further away from their nest. They are getting used to using a ‘doggy door’ to go outside with limited success, however, this will change in the next few weeks. The website will be updated on Saturday also.

Food Guide

Cavoodle Food Guide

I am trying to introduce as much variety as I can so that your puppy will be OK with as many foods as possible.

The following:- (these are only suggestions, she/he will adapt to you and what you offer eventually)

– chicken necks cut up small (available from Coles and Woolworths) about $4 a tray will last for a while so you could freeze most and only have 1 or 2 for her/him

– pet mince (purple packet) also available at Coles and Woolworths, she/he will only eat about a tablespoon of this as it is very rich. You could freeze most and only have a small amount in the fridge or divide into small amounts wrap in gladwrap and freeze.

– beef mince, low grade, raw and cooked. This is the first food that puppies have been introduced to and all are accepting of it.

– tin dog food any brand. Again she/he eats only small amounts of this, maybe a tablespoon at most. This just gives a bit of variety and helps when you haven’t remembered to take something out of the freezer. A small tin only until you see what he/she really likes.

– puppy SuperCoat biscuits – Dr Harry – pink trim on packet. Available at supermarkets – be sure to get puppy stage for the size and higher protein.

I have dry biscuits and water available all the time and feed the puppies by hand at first about 3 times a day – only very small amounts. Actually, they do not eat very much. You will soon find they enjoy to play more than to eat.

Just for your interest, as we are on a property, we shoot rabbits. Your puppy has also had fresh rabbit which they love, of course.

As far as bedding is concerned, she/he has been using a little dog bed (pad) available from the pet shops also in Kmart, and she/he will have part of the blanket from the nest which I will provide

A lead and soft toys are good also, especially the ones with a squeaker in them.

Toilet training began when they first started to leave the nest. She/he should go to newspaper or close to it and now that she/he is older she/he is going onto grass. This is a learning process. I have provided a lot more information and tips in the folder that I will give to you about this.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more questions
