The waiting game....Day 61
Daisy seems so uncomfortable, constantly rearranging herself to get some relief. It could be any day now!
Daisy is sleeping more and go figure eating more! She is now getting several smaller meals a day. We will begin taking her temperature twice a day beginning on day 60, the bitches normal temperature is around
101 degrees, we will be looking for a significant drop to around 98 degrees, once that occurs we can expect the whelp within 24 hours.
Puppy Culture is a guiding hand for you and your puppy.
Our team of experts have bred, raised, and trained thousands of dogs, and we know from first hand experience what works best. We make that vast experience available to you, broken down into clear instructions, in short chapters that are easy and fun to watch.
How you teach your puppy is as important as what you teach your puppy.
Studies have shown that many common training techniques can actually increase aggression and problem behaviors, which can damage the human-animal bond. The Puppy Culture program will show you how to train your dog while enriching your bond with him, every step of the way.
Real life proof that it works.
Most puppy training videos appear to have been shot in one weekend, using a few easy-to-train puppies. How do you know those training techniques really work in the long run? Unlike other films, Puppy Culture tracks one litter over three years, so you can see the true results of our program. You’ll see the puppies overcome real and varied behavior challenges and ultimately grow to gentle, well-behaved adult dogs.
The truth about socialization.
During this sensitive time, the puppy is as vulnerable to imprinting negative experiences as he is to imprinting good experiences. This means you need a good plan for socializing your puppy. Your Puppy Culture team gives you a plan and guides you through the process.
How to be your puppy's advocate.
It can be difficult to stand up to a person in a position of authority, such as a veterinarian or a dog trainer, but you need to learn what’s right and wrong for your puppy, and stand up against bad advice. Puppy Culture’s veterinarians, behaviorists, and breeders give you the facts to know when you’re right, and the conviction to walk away from anything that might harm your puppy.
We feed our dogs a homemade Raw Diet and encourage all our puppy buyers to also feed a balanced Raw diet. Our blends are species & biologically appropriate; high moisture, high protein, low carb (no grains), include secreting organ, liver & a vitamin and mineral supplement recommended by holistic veterinarian Dr Karen Becker. Dr Becker has several YouTube videos on a more natural & unprocessed diet. Check them out!
Only two weeks to go! Daisy is sleeping a lot more and is starting to shed a bit of fur from her belly, so her puppies can easily find the teats. At this stage in pregnancy the puppies have fur and look like puppies! Some moms begin nesting at this point. Good thing we have the whelping box set up. Fingers crossed that Daisy chooses to have her pups in there!
Daisy is continuing to grow. We have increased her food and set up the whelping box in my office. She is starting to get used to it. Lucy was happy to get in and check things out.
6th week of pregnancy
Daisy is starting to "show"! She is beginning her 6th week of pregnancy and we are starting to see changes in her body. She is beginning to loose her tuck-up, her nipples are pink and she is beginning to thicken through the waist. She is definitely hungrier! Her raging hormones are making her more clingy (What?? How can a Vizsla be more clingy?) Believe me, it is possible!
