CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!

Good Evening Chilliwack Labradoodle Families! We hope you are enjoying your December and are able to slow down just a bit and spend that extra time with your loved ones.

This our one-week Pup Date on the puppies from our Peppermint Mocha Litter!

The first week of our puppies’ lives has been a very busy one for both the puppies and their Momma Sakura.  Sakura continues to devote all of her time to caring for and nurturing each and every one of her nine puppies.  The proof definitely reflects how well they are developing and how much they have been growing!

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.  

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.

1.) Our firstborn puppy is our Christmas Ribbon boy.  He is exciting chocolate and white parti patterned boy.

Christmas boy was born weighing in at 7.9 ounces                                                                                     He had no trouble finding his way to the “milk bar” and weighs in today at 14.2 ounces

 

 

2.) Our next born is Dark Blue Ribbon girl. She is a very decadent chocolate phantom. Phantom is when the puppy has a base colour and has the tan markings on the face, eyebrows, paws, and under the tail.

 

 Dark Blue girl was born weighing in at 7.8 ounces                                                                                      She now weighs in at 14.0 ounces

Yellow boy was born weighing in at  8.4 ounces                                                                                      Today he weighs 15.5 ounces

 

4.) Our Red Ribbon girl was born fourth in the litter. Red Ribbon has a Tri, Chocolate Phantom. Tri refers to the fact that she has three colourings in her coat, chocolate, tan and white.

 

Red Ribbon girl was born weighing in at 8.8 ounces                                                                              Today she weighs 1 lb 1.3 ounces

7.) Number seven born is our Light Green Ribbon boy. Light Green is a beautiful chocolate with white flash.

Light Green boy was born with a weight of 8.7ounces                                                                               He now weighs 1 lb .06 ounces

Peach Ribbon girl was born weighing 7.3 ounces                                                                                          Today she weighs 14.2 ounces

 

9.) Our precious Light Pink girl has a super sleek chocolate colour.

 

Light Pink was born weighing exactly 6 ounces                                                                                           Do not let her size fool you she is no stranger to pushing her way to the “milk bar” and getting exactly what she needs!                                                                                                                                          As you can see she now weighs 11.2 ounces

CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!

 

 

Good Evening Chilliwack Labradoodle Families! 

This our two-week Pup Date on the puppies from our Peppermint Mocha Litter!

This second week of life for our puppies has been an accomplished one. Sakura still needs to help the puppies eliminate and clean up after them. However, they are starting to do this on their own now as well. For the past week, the puppies have scootched around on their tummies working on building strength for the big day when they could stand on all fours. That day came this past week, our four-legged babies pull themselves up onto all fours and wobble about like Bambie. It is truly beautiful to watch.

The big milestone for this week is that the puppies can open their eyes! You will notice their eyes are blue, this will change over time as puppies are always born with blue eyes. Their eyes will not stay blue as Labradoodles do not have blue eyes. The puppies can now see outlines and shapes but they still cannot hear. Their ears start to open at about three weeks old, it will often take longer than three weeks for this to occur.

 

Let's take a look at how each of our miniature Australian Labradoodles are doing this week.

1.) Our firstborn puppy is our Christmas Ribbon boy.  He is exciting chocolate and white parti patterned boy.

 

 

 

2.) Our next born is Dark Blue Ribbon girl. She is a very decadent chocolate phantom. Phantom is when the puppy has a base colour and has the tan markings on the face, eyebrows, paws, and under the tail.

4.) Our Red Ribbon girl was born fourth in the litter. Red Ribbon has a Tri, Chocolate Phantom. Tri refers to the fact that she has three colourings in her coat, chocolate, tan and white.

 

Red Ribbon girl was born weighing in at 8.8 ounces                                                                              Today she weighs 1 lb 1.3 ounces

CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!

 

 

Good Evening Chilliwack Labradoodle Families! 

This our three-week Pup Date on the puppies from our Peppermint Mocha 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 see you.

-As a family, you will want to sit down and figure out what are you going to have in place for rules for your dog?

Is your dog going to be allowed on the furniture or not?  Will he/she be allowed on the bed?  If you are not sure at this point I would start with not allowing them as opposed to allowing this to happen.  Habits are hard to break so teaching them good habits from the start will set you and your puppy up for great success.

This third week our puppies have had a few milestones, they are up on all fours walking confident yet a bit wobbly, they recognize us, humans, when we walk into the room, they are starting to play with each other and a few have new teeth! 

And they all had their First Bath! 

Let's take a look at how each of our miniature Australian Labradoodles are doing this week.

1.) Our firstborn puppy is our Christmas Ribbon boy.  He is exciting chocolate and white parti patterned boy.

CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!

 

 

Good Evening Chilliwack Labradoodle Families! 

This our four-week Pup Date on the puppies from our Peppermint Mocha Litter!

It was so nice to visit with all of you on our Puppy Visit day! Some of the high points of this week you were all able to see first hand while you were here meeting the puppies. 

This week was an adventurous one in our puppies' lives! The puppies have moved into the puppy nursery, have been introduced to and love their new Sensory Gymnasium! Not only is this Gymnasium Fun but it helps the puppies become desensitized to different noises, textures, shapes, sizes, and colours. It helps them to learn how to navigate obstacles, gain confidence in our world and become resilient.  

 

The puppies were also introduced to pablum this week, as part of a natural weaning process we slowly start to feed them a mixture of pablum, pumpkin and puppy formula.  Of course, at first, they were unsure as to what this was, but it did not take them long to realize lapping up food in a pan was quite delicious and they are messy little pros at it now!

 

With their whelping bed gone we have introduced them to their crate. As most of you saw they do indeed love their crate it is where they puppy pile, to go to sleep. They are keeping their crate clean just as we hope and using puppy pads outside their crate to potty.  This will help the transition to their new home with you if indeed you are using a crate and they will be familiar with potty pads.

I did tell a couple of you I would send estimated dimensions of puppy crate to bring your puppy home in. We would suggest a crate approximately 16" Tall X 22" Long X 15" Wide. I am resending the link to our website page that has our "Favourite supplies for you and your new puppy," for you to relook at if you choose.

CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!

 

 

Good evening Chilliwack Labradoodle Families! 

This our five-week Pup Date on the puppies from our Peppermint Mocha Litter!

During Puppy Visit day you had a chance to see some of the supplies and the food we recommend. We talked about our crates and which ones we prefer. For today's Pup Date I would like to speak to you a bit more about why a dog's crate and bed are important. 


 

Naptime is so important for puppies. Without quality sleep, just like ourselves your puppy cannot learn as well and will not perform up to their usual standards. Whether we are talking about their crate or bed you want them to feel safe and comfortable so that they receive the best quality sleep they can have.  Puppies need time to decompress especially during the first 16 months of life as they are experiencing and learning everything for the first time, this can be very exhausting for these little fur babies.  It is very important to give them time and a soft, safe and secure place to sleep. A place no one will disrupt them.  As we talked about in our puppy visit, in order to achieve this choose a smaller crate, with a nice soft crate mat preferably with a ledge for them to rest their heads. 

For the children in our families, this is the most exciting time and they love to be with their new best friend whenever they get a notion to.  They love to rush up and cuddle with their puppy/dog, pick them up while they are sleeping and quite often be with them every chance they can get. This is the deep bond we like to see our children have with our dogs. This is an opportunity to teach our children about understanding and the responsibility they have for their puppy's needs. While your puppy needs to know that their crate is a safe place and know nobody can get at them and they don't get out of on there own, our children need to understand this as well.  Our children need to understand when the puppy/dog is in its crate they are not to be disturbed.  Your puppy/dog will need a quiet place to have their alone time from the children.  Once the puppy is well-rested he will return to his/her usual self, be refreshed and ready to start the next adventure. A good equation to follow when you bring your puppy home is an hour out of the crate should equal the next hour in for nap time. 

Again to go over what we discussed at the Pup Date choose a crate that is not too large. Dogs instinctively never sleep where they go to the bathroom. If your crate is too large he will have room to go to the bathroom in a corner. To start we suggest a crate approximately 16" Tall X 22" Long X 15" Wide. Chilliwack Labradoodles has already begun to train your dog with the crate, it is familiar and sees it as a safe place, "their den." Using a sheet to cover a crate is sometimes very helpful for a puppy that has a hard time settling down and shutting out distractions. Often puppies and dogs also like the idea that no one can see in, this can be comforting to them.

Guideline for how long a puppy can be in a crate for a single period of time?

It is said that the equation for this is one hour for each month the puppy is old. For the first three months, I would say that is a bit excessive. When you bring your puppy home I would suggest one-hour intervals in the crate would be more the norm. Except of course when your puppy is sleeping, if they fall asleep in the crate and are sleeping for hours that is perfectly ok let them sleep. If you have to run out every now and again once in a while, three hour intervals would be perfectly fine for a three-month-old puppy. As discussed we want your puppies crate to be a place they want to be, whenever you put them in the crate get in a good habit of putting their favorite bone or a stuffed Kong into the crate. They will be content to be in their crate and able to exercise their brain as well as help with their teething. 

As I said we have started your puppy on basic crate training so when your puppy comes home your puppy can usually sleep in their crate for up to six hours during the evening. Now because your puppy will be transitioning to your home, all of his/her routines and familiar sights, sounds, smells not to mention Momma and Litter Mates are gone your puppy may regress a bit in all or any areas and you will need to work up to the six hours of sleep. 

 

Throughout your day put your puppy in their crate for short periods while you go about your daily business. It is ok if the puppy can see you at times, this establishes the fact that they are ok in their crate and they will learn you will always come back to get them. You want them to become independent, confident and self-sooth. At times when the puppy is not in his/her crate, we leave the door open so they can roam freely and if they so choose to go in to relax they can.

What is the best way to toilet train my puppy?

At Chilliwack Labradoodles we find Crate training is a very successful way to train your puppy.  Puppies do not like to eliminate in their beds.  

 

Your puppy will need to sleep where you can hear it. If your puppy begins to whine in his crate or make noises immediately get up, leash your puppy while she is still in the crate, pick your puppy up out of the crate and pack it outside to your "potty place." (Try to avoid taking your puppy out of the crate while it is pawing at the crate, the second he/she is not pawing quickly open the crate and say "let's go potty." If you are continually retrieving your puppy exactly when they whine or paw crate they will get the message that, "ahhh, if I do this my owner will let me out." They will think you want them to do that behavior.)  You will find having a consistent and familiar word that everyone in the household uses to key the puppy to potty is very important. For example, our word is "Go Potty." Your puppy/dog will want to sniff around that is ok for a bit. We do not walk around we stand still let the puppy roam as far as the leash allows, only in the area we have designated for potty. We say "go potty!" The second the puppy goes potty, in our happy voice, smiley face, we say good potty!! We reward her with a small liver treat or whatever treat you choose. Puppies recognize by your facial expressions and tone of voice if we are happy with what they are doing and will more likely continue that behavior. The treat reinforces to them that "ahh that is what "go potty," means! If your puppy continues to sniff around let her for a few more minutes just in case they have more business to do. Do not let them take too long as we want them to understand this is "potty time" not playtime. If this is indeed the middle of the night pack her back to the crate and tuck her in.  Every time they potty give them a treat and be very excited and happy for them! Australian Labradoodles are very intelligent and this will speed potty training or any training up, it is a way of positively reinforcing the good behavior that you want from them.

Throughout the day use the same method as described above when having to take your puppy out to go potty.  First thing in the morning will be her first potty break.  Each time whether it is night or day and your puppy is coming out of her crate she will need to be taken potty. After each meal and each drink of water, your puppy will need to be taken potty.  After your puppy has eaten a meal wait for about 10 minutes and you take it out for potty.  If she doesn't eliminate, take your puppy in and put her in her crate. (Remeber crate time is a positive time, have a bone or special toy for her in there.) Wait for 10-20 minutes, take the puppy out potty again. If your puppy eliminates this time praise and rewards her. If she does not eliminate bring her back into the crate, keep repeating until she eliminates.  The more consistent you are with this in the early weeks will instill to the puppy that this is how potty time works and they will learn quickly what is expected of them.  The more often your puppy potties in the house the harder it will be to break that behavior. Every puppy has learned behaviors whether they are wanted or unwanted behaviors that is why we need to consistently promote good behaviors for both the puppy and ourselves long term relationship and success. 

A tool that can train your puppy to let you know when he/she needs to potty is to place a bell on your door and each time you take him/her to potty ring it-eventually they will catch on and begin to ring the bell when they need to be let out. 

You will get to know your puppy and will soon be increasing these times to longer periods.  It will not take long for your puppy to know which door they need to wait to go potty. Or which area of the yard is their potty spot. Your consistency and patience in the short term will pay off for many years to come!

This week the puppies have just been introduced to their first feeding of kibble mush! Let me tell you ..they lap it up! The puppies continue to play with their Sensory Gymnasium! We continue to spend one to one time with each puppy, exposing them to different
