CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!
CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!
Good Afternoon Chilliwack Labradoodle Families! With Christmas just a couple days away we wanted to send out a special Christmas Pup Date.
Our puppies' from "The Birthday Party Litter," are barely 48 hours old and thriving with their devoted Momma Roseabelle.
The first week of our puppies’ lives will be a busy one for Momma Bella.
You will notice that all of the puppies’ eyes are sealed shut, as are their ears. When puppies are born they cannot see, hear or eliminate on their own they are entirely dependent on their mother.
The love and devotion in Bella's eyes speaks volumes, I am sure she would agree her puppies are the best Christmas Present she could have asked for.
I would like to introduce you to each of our puppies and tell you a little bit about each one. I will go through each puppy in the order of birth.

At this age, puppies are with their Momma's all of the time. Mommas really value privacy and we like to respect that. That being said at this age the puppies eat, potty and sleep! We were able to catch this litter in their proverbial "Doggie Pile" having a nap, and shot a short video. We hope you enjoy the video of The Birthday Party Litter.
CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!
Good Evening Chilliwack Labradoodle Families! We hope that you enjoyed your Christmas festivities!
This our one-week Pup Date on the puppies from our Birthday Party Litter!
This week we would like to ask if you have given thought about getting your house ready for your puppy? Things to think about.....
-Which door will your puppy go in and out of at your house to go to the bathroom?
It is really important when you are doing house training or any sort of training to have consistency. So you will want to pick the door that is most convenient to you and that goes directly to your "potty area."
Puppies have a really short attention span so you want to make sure that the door is easily accessible and the potty area is right outside the door. If you are involving your children in potty training you will want to make sure the door is easy to open for them.
Have you thought about a designated area to house your puppy chew toys, or leash and collars?
This is especially important when you have more than one member in your home. We have our harnesses and leashes hanging on 3M hooks directly beside the door to where we take our dogs potty. This works great for us.
-Next, have you decided where your puppy will eat?
As I said puppies do have short attention spans so choosing a place to eat that is a bit out of the way so the puppy can concentrate on eating is important. Labradoodles are notorious for having a lack of food drive, fewer distractions should help with that.
-Where is your puppy going to sleep?
We highly recommend your puppy sleep in your bedroom with you in a crate for at least the first few weeks. When we sleep we elicit pheromones and dogs absorb those pheromones just by being in the same room as us. Those pheromones help to build the bond between you and your dog. It helps them become a member of your "pack." During the first couple of nights, your puppy may want to get up during the night to go to the bathroom. You will need to be close by to hear that signal and you want to give your puppy comfort it is important they know that you are right there when they first move to your house. It is fine if your puppy sleeps with your children, as long as your children are prepared to take the puppy out at three or four in the morning for a potty break.
-Another thing you will want to consider is will there be "Dog Free," zones in your home?
In our home we have some dog-free zones, our children's playroom is one area. Our kiddos have lego and all sorts of little bits and toys hiding in the playroom so we all just make sure to shut the door to that room and teach our dogs early on to stay outside the room.
If your children are like ours and not always inclined to pick up after themselves and they have an expensive tablet or perhaps an Xbox, rooms that have an abundance of electronic devices, electrical cords, etc. may also be rooms you decide are dog free. If you haven't already designated which rooms are for these devices and "puppy free," then now might be the time to give this some thought. If the room does not have a secure door then a baby gate is your next option.
Start working with your children and yourselves now ask the question is everything "Safe" for the puppy? This includes picking up your remote control and your cell phones figure out where you can put those items out of puppies reach and not likely to be destroyed. When you bring your puppy home he/she will be teething and they do not discriminate as to what goes into their mouths!
If you have an area you would like to block off but do not have a door. We recommend an Xpen, an Xpen is a wire gate enclosure it can go straight or circular. They are invaluable because you can contain your dog anywhere or you can use them to block off a certain area. Baby gates are great to have on hand as well. Dogs should not go up and down stair for the first 6 months they should be carried and not have access to stairs. That is to protect their hips and their developing joints. Baby gates also keep dogs out of areas but they can still se
