There is so little time left before Ruby goes into labor. I’ve been trying to get as much as I can done before the puppies are born. I will be sleeping next to the whelping box just in case there is any trouble the first few weeks. I want to make sure I’m there for Ruby and the babies every step of the way! I‘m currently watching a DVD that I purchased called Puppy Culture. Its an amazing program that walks breeders, veterinarians, and prospective puppy owners through the critical developmental periods that a puppy goes through in his/ her first 12 weeks. The program focuses on neurological stimulation, socialization, problem prevention protocols, and basic training skills. It is a great learning and reference tool that I will be incorporating into my breeding program in order to ensure the puppies the very best start in life.
P.S. The photo above is Benny enjoying the beautiful day on our artificial turf. He’s such a happy camper!
