Well I guess everyone has their own way of doing things, yes most breeders worm at two weeks, but I believe that socialisation is the key at this stage in a pups life

Let me take a wild guess, since I am not a breeder it will probably be wrong, but it will be fun:

That would be 3-4 weeks old, my guess would be to start them on gruel???
I believe most start worming at 2 weeks or so......
Yes, thats my guess....gruel.

Is that right, grammy?
That kind of stuff is what the book teaches you!

Okay, I guess I will buy the book, to see if I am right or not.

You and grammy should get a percentage!

You could tell me if it was a good guess though.

Yah !!! Julie !!! I'd answer you but my Doctor just got an new puppy and asked to borrow my book i!!!! EliN chose her pup ( Eli ) after taking the tests.... was funny as I had 2 daughters each thinking they had chosen their pups.... I removed all markings and collars and after their tests they chose different from their 1st choices. ! Both thought they got their heart dogs, and they did !

Julie, as far as the first puppy feeding, each litter was different as to the # of pups. I always held off as long a possible as to adding puppy food. Part of it was for the pups to nurse as long as possible , once you start adding food #1 you're the puppy scooper upper as the Mom stops the clean up their jobs. 2nd of all ... I ground their puppy food starting with a powder to mix with water , and slowly made it more course over the weeks. By the time they went home , they were on regular puppy food ( still mixed with water. ) I could always tell when the mom had had it feeding wise, and each litter was different. When weaning from the Mom, I'd let them nurse enough so she wouldn't be swollen and sore. It's a very fine line.... enough to relieve, but not enough to produce more milk on demand.

I am sure you don't need the book to answer, Come on........

Just give me a clue.
What did you mean when you wrote that???
What are you supposed to do between 22 -28 days?

I don't believe it is socialization either, cause that is a continious thing, not just between that time period.

If you would rather not post, just PM me, PLEASE.......

I don't breed pups, but this is just to see if I am anywhere near the ball park..

Julie.
