Here’s more about breeding and raising Whispering Pines Farm puppies –

10.  At 4 weeks old, the puppies are really active!  They play and wrestle with each other, biting on ears and tails.  We started weaning them from Sunny now, giving them a liquidy mash of  dry food soaked in water, then blended with a little of the canine milk replacer.  We use the same dry food that all our dogs eat – Life’s Abundance by HealthyPetNet.  It is formulated by a holistic vet, and good for ALL life stages, including puppies.  No hesitation here, they all lapped it right up!  Over the next week we will gradually decrease the liquid until they are eating slightly soaked food, then all dry.  The more food that goes in, the more there is to clean up!  So we use lots of newspaper and change their bedding twice a day.  Watch a Video:  

11.  At 5 weeks old, we start allowing visitors.  They love visiting time!  They get to play in the living room, smell new smells and bite new fingers and toes!  They weigh between 5-6 lbs now, and are growing fast!  We use only pe t& planet-safe cleaning products around the puppies – Floor Cleaner  from HealthyPetNet  (they also have an awesome biodeodorizer for pet accidents) and disinfectant with tea tree oil from Melaleuca.  We expose them to all the normal sights and sounds of a household, including banging pots & pans, the vacuum cleaner, and something new everyday.   That might be getting their toenails clipped, playing with duck wings, meeting the other dogs and cat, and going for a ride in the car.  The more they experience now, the easier the transition will be for them in their new homes.   And that’s the best gift of all – knowing these puppies will bring joy and companionship to 9 loving families!  More Video

There’s so much more, but I think that’s enough for now.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Have a Happy, Healthy and Abundant New Year!
