BIRTH TO EIGHT WEEKS
All of the puppies born in my house are raised around other dogs, kids. For the first week they are in a kennel (which I call the birthing house), since this is where they are born. After that I move them and mommy to a larger "house" in the "puppy nursery" this way mommy still gets the privacy she wants.There is food in the "little house" for mommy all of the time and mommy also gets extra protein from other sources. The healthier mommy eats, the better for the puppies. Since the food is available all of the time, the puppies can start eating food on their own schedule.
At five weeks each puppy receives their first shot and first dose of wormer. At seven weeks they receive their second shot and their second dose of wormer.
I do keep this recorded in a medical book for each puppy. This book goes home with the puppy with his/her new mommy/daddy.
