|Full and content puppies!|
I hope you are enjoying watching the puppies on our live stream cameras 24/7. The puppies are growing like weeds and gaining about 3 lbs weekly. Tulip is so devoted to them that she cleans up after them and nurses them throughout the day and night. It has been two weeks since they began eating fresh food, and they have enormous appetites. Puppies that are full are content puppies!
It was a big change for puppies this week since they moved from our bedroom into the living room. As they are old enough to go outside now, this area provides them with access to a private yard. They will go outside for the first time this weekend, weather permitting. Seeing them sniff and listen to new sounds is always exciting.
Earlier this week, toys were introduced, and you can see how they engage with them. To stimulate their minds, we also have an activity center. We love watching them develop at this age.
This is the period when puppies get familiar with everyday household noises such as TVs, vacuum cleaners, telephones, etc. Puppies start becoming aware of their surroundings between 3 and 5 weeks of age.
At this age are just beginning to interact with each other and play. Additionally, they are learning doggie social skills and exploring their ranking status within their pack. Their curiosity as well as their nipping behaviours are developing.
