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 DOGS – EARLY 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:
