After having 13 puppies I was tired, tired, tired. I knew that I had to take care of my pups like a good mama and was happy to have Carrie and Lu there to help me out.
Lu had young ECAD volunteer Alex and his sisters come over to meet my pups. Socialization on the pups starts within hours of being born.
This is important so that the pups get comfortable with having people handle them so when they do start training at 7 weeks they are comfortable with there human trainers.
Carrie, aka my midwife , spent lots of time with me and my pups. She would touch their ears and their feet and their toes to get them use to having them touched.
With the pups eyes open they start to become more active. Phewww they keep me on my toes!
