We have Australian Labradoodle puppies. Fili — 1-st time mom!

Thank you for visi­ting! Here we will show you our deve­lop­ment of our pup­pies week by week.

The mommy of this won­der­ful lit­ter is Wlo­chata Pasja Fili­gree Sur­prise and daddy: Rutlands Black Onyxe. Pup­pies were born on 7-th of May 2012

Week 1 (1−7 days old)
It has been a week now since we were born. Our mommy is a great mommy. She does not leave our side and she makes sure that we are warm. She does not even want to go out of the whel­ping box for eating so she is hand fed in the whel­ping box.
We are gro­wing and we almost doubled up our weight. It is a good sign and heal­thy gro­wing pup­pies sho­uld double up the weight within first 7–8 days.
We sleep 90% of our time and we are very quiet. That means that we are warm and our bel­lies are full;) That is how it is sup­po­sed to be;)
Early Neu­ro­lo­gi­cal Sti­mu­la­tion is being prac­ti­ced on us. To see how it works and under­stand the bene­fit of it ple­ase read an article:
BREEDING BETTER DOGSEARLY NEUROLOGICAL STIMULATION

http://breedingbetterdogs.com/pdfFiles/articles/early_neurological_stimulation_en.pdf

But shor­tly spe­aking:
Five bene­fits have been obse­rved in cani­nes that were expo­sed to the Bio Sen­sor
Sti­mu­la­tion exer­ci­ses. The bene­fits noted were:
1. Impro­ved car­dio vascu­lar per­for­mance (heart rate)
2. Stron­ger heart beats,
3. Stron­ger adre­nal glands,
4. More tole­rance to stress, and
5. Gre­ater resi­stance to disease.

It means we need to fol­low 5 exer­ci­ses, 3 seconds each. We are:

1. Put Upside down

Week 2 (7−14 days)

Fili is a great mother and she pro­tects her babies. Do you see the green squ­eaky toy? She has adop­ted it as her own child. Fabian was squ­eaking with it and she gen­tly took it away from him and put in in the nest;) That is cal­led “mater­nal retrie­val” she will con­ti­nue doing it for the next few days and then it will stop (this is an instinct – it appe­ars after the last puppy is born and it lasts for more or less 13 days)
We still con­ti­nue early neu­ro­lo­gi­cal sti­mu­la­tion and today we star­ted to do the mem­brane exer­ci­ses – those exer­ci­ses sti­mu­late mem­brane and the pur­pose of it so the pup­pies will not have motion sick­ness (car sick­ness). We will con­ti­nue that exer­ci­ses for the next 2 weeks.
One puppy ope­ned his eyes the others are star­ting.
Yester­day we star­ted play­ing pre­na­tal songs for pup­pies (lul­la­bies with hearth beet and the sounds of pre­na­tal envi­ron­ment). The new testing have shown that they are great for cal­ming babies as well as the dogs (this method is being prac­ti­ced in the USA ken­nels) with a great suc­cess rate.
Pup­pies are very rela­xed, we can han­dle them and they behave like plush toys – they do not mind;) Some Tto­uch mas­sage is also being prac­ti­ced on the pups now.

Week 3 (14−21 days)

We are now begin­ning to play and as you can see we have ope­ned our eyes alre­ady! We are play­ing and eating our own paws, legs it looks too funny!
Early Neu­ro­lo­gi­cal sti­mu­la­tion has been fini­shed but now our mem­bra­nes are being exer­ci­sed. Thanks to them none of us will suf­fer car sick­ness in the future.
We are meeting dif­fe­rent toys and today we got pre­sent for inter­na­tio­nal children’s day ;)– soft toys! We will take them home with a scent of the lit­ter – this way we will miss our­se­lves less.
We have been intro­du­ced to other family mem­bers. Don­nan, God­dess, Onyxe – Cara­mel did not care. And guess what?! Today we went out­side for the first time!!! We were sit­ting in the basket and we were not let to run by our­se­lves but it was a great expe­rience any­way. We were not cry­ing even a lit­tle bit. The exam is pas­sed with high sco­res!!
Next week will be the week of explo­ring – right now we are being pre­pa­red for the big world. We are sho­wed things aro­und the house – but we are always han­dled in the arms so we are not afraid.

Week 4 (21−28 days)

It is hap­pe­ning! We have ente­red our socia­li­za­tion age and now we get to do soooo many things!
We expe­ri­ment and explore.
We have been out­side with our mommy. We touched grass with our lit­tle feet. We are allo­wed now at the other room for the socia­li­za­tion and enri­ched envi­ron­ment. We play on the play­gro­und made out of dif­fe­rent things. Right now we are exer­ci­sing on dif­fe­rent kinds of boxes. We are allo­wed to get in, under and on the boxes.
This way we are sti­mu­la­ting the con­nec­tions between our brain cells. The more con­nec­tions the bet­ter for our future deve­lop­ment. Brain which is not sti­mu­la­ted has a small num­ber of con­nec­tions between those cells and that results that a puppy will not have so many abi­li­ties as well sti­mu­la­ted puppy (and may even turn out to be a very fear­ful dog). This is why this early sti­mu­la­tion of the brain is so impor­tant. Play­gro­und on which we can touch dif­fe­rent things meet dif­fe­rent objects (objects change) is a sti­mu­la­ting envi­ron­ment.
We have been allo­wed to eat some yogurt for the first time. It was sooo tasty. Fir­stly we tried a lit­tle bit but next day we were given the yogurt in bowls.
Of course our mem­bra­nes are still sti­mu­la­ted and our whel­ping box has chan­ged into the bench and play area. We are tau­ght to pee on the pads.

Week 5 (28−35 days)

We are having a great time now! We are explo­ring a lot!
At this stage the most impor­tant thing for us is CHANGE – in the meaning of chan­ging envi­ron­ment. Every day we do some­thing else.
1. We meet dif­fe­rent people
2. We are liste­ning to the music from the syn­the­si­zer (key­bo­ard): heli­cop­ter sounds, bre­aking glass, gun shots, birds, ocean waves and nor­mal piano sounds. Fabian is play­ing the piano for us
3. We are wal­king on a dif­fe­rent mate­rials: sto­nes, grass, boxes
4. We are meeting dif­fe­rent and safe dog­gies
5. We are visi­ting dif­fe­rent rooms in the house – Fabian is invi­ting us to his room .

Week 7 (42−49 days)

It has been so much fun!
This week we con­ti­nued to do the same things we did the past week but with a lit­tle change.
One more fac­tor has been added to the envi­ron­ment – NOISE and DROPPING THINGS. Pup­pies felt safe in the envi­ron­ment that they alre­ady knew so we could intro­duce those new fac­tors.
If the envi­ron­ment was new and we would add noise and drop­ping things then the pup­pies could get sca­red and would be sca­red next time in the simi­lar situ­ation.
Some­ti­mes things drop and we hear the noise from out­side – it is nor­mal so your pup has to be pre­pa­red for that.
Fabian was also hel­ping to do the noise
And we had nice visi­tors this week­end from Austria. Pup­pies were play­ing very hap­pily with them. As they got some extra socialization

We had ano­ther visi­tor – Ani­mal Beha­vio­rist Agnieszka who was doing the tem­pe­ra­ment testing for the pup­pies. Only tests done by a new and unfa­mi­liar per­son are rele­vant as pup­pies will behave the most accu­rate aro­und that person.

Week 8 (49−56 day)

This week we exer­cise and train the pup­pies. We teach them how to sit and lay down and give a five. Howe­ver this exer­ci­ses are not for the pur­pose of tra­ining the pup­pies so they know how to sit before they go to their new homes. It is for the pur­pose of pup­pies to get to know posi­tive rein­for­ce­ment tra­ining. See it for yourself:

Week­end — 14–15 of July was the week­end when we welco­med family from Fin­land. It was a lovely week­end and it was nice expe­rience. Tahko was the last puppy who has left us to go and lead a happy life with this won­der­ful family from Finland.

It was a lovely time to have you here pup­pies. Those were moments of joy one never for­gets. Again I met won­der­ful people and that gives me a good feeling that you are in good hands. Good luck and lots of deli­cious bones! Bring lots of joy to the fami­lies that love you.
