Page 3 - week 4

Sept 6

The puppies and Laurie had a very busy week! it is amazing how fast they change. The pups are now in a bigger pen in the 2nd bedroom, have had several trips outside and are barking and playing. The pups even had a Pizza party on the 3rd when several friends from Laurie's work came to play. These were the pups first visitors from outside Laurie's extended family. The pups are now eating 1 meal a day, and with this starts clicker training for the next few weeks the pups will be fed and clicked as they eat to learn what a clicker means. They continue to listen to their sound socialization CDs and by all accounts are doing great. I was able to visit with the puppies on the 6th and they all look great, happy, playful and curious just as they should be!

By the time a puppy is 7 weeks old (end of seven weeks) it should have:
