Puppy Fitness Videos~FitDog Friday

The puppies have been having fun and getting fit at the same time with their play time outside. I have different obstacles set up for them so it’s like a puppy playground. They all aren’t afraid of any of the obstacles, it’s fun to watch them explore.

Pink Bear Thank You

The puppies got more mail! They were super excited to learn that they won a giveaway over at Oz The Terrier’s place. He had a giveaway for a durable Kathy Ireland pink bear.

We got mail! Really it’s for us?

This should of been a Monday Mischief post as you can see there was a little destruction that went on. Gambler thought the toy and very nice letter by Oz was his so he took it upon himself to eat the letter. Lucky the toy was not damaged as it is super gman safe and durable.

The puppies LOVED the new toy. They each were taking a turn on it, so thank you very much buddy Oz, it’s just what the puppies needed.

Since we’re on the topic of giveaways I also want to give a shout out to our Thursday Barks And Bytes host Jodi as she did a review for a new product called Omegease which is a fish oil supplement and I won that too. So thank you Jodi at Heart Like A Dog for the great review and giveaway, I can’t wait to try it and do my own review later down the line.

We had a fun photo shoot this past weekend. The puppies turned 5 weeks old on Saturday. Only three more weeks until they go to their new homes. It’s a good thing I’m keeping one as they are just too darn cute. I’ve narrowed down my decision, I will be keeping either Orange or Pink. Who will the lucky lady be?

Seeing Beautiful In America, Flags, Freedom And Chessie Puppies

{This Moment} See Beautiful

Today I am seeing beauty in the things I love: America, Flags, Freedom and Chessie Puppies. Chesapeake Bay Retrievers are one of the few American Bred dogs so it’s only appropriate to take some pictures of my puppies with an American Flag afghan and a old copper tub symbolizing America and freedom.

The girls.

The boys.

MY HEART BELONGS TO A CHESAPEAKE BAY RETRIEVER

A rough and ready sporting dog,
With loyal, loving ways-
My Chesapeake Bay Retriever
Puts sunshine in my days.

A dog that’s sure to follow its nose,
Until the chase is done.
When that pup looked up at me,
I knew my heart was won.

Roaming happily by my side,
Or resting at my feet-
My Chesapeake Bay Retriever
Makes my life complete.

Along with Seeing Beautiful this month the puppies are still getting fit or should I say they are helping Grandma Nellie stay fit by chasing  playing with her.

Puppy Culture

Puppy Culture is a complete resource for breeders or puppy owners on raising a litter. It’s the powerful first 12 weeks that can shape your puppy’s future. I never knew about Puppy Culture until my friend Amy got her new puppy in the beginning of the year and followed along with the Puppy Culture videos. I bred my Chesapeake Bay Retriever Glory back in May that is when Amy recommended that I watch the videos. I learned about raising a litter in Veterinary Technician school, had three litters with Glory’s mom Nellie now I didn’t follow a guideline but much of the stuff in the Puppy Culture videos I was already doing and some I didn’t even know about so this was a great learning experience for me and I was happy to introduce Glory’s litter to Puppy Culture.

Disc One started with The Puppy Culture Proposition and ended with The Communication Trinity.

It talked about the Pre-natal period,  Neo-natal 0-14 days, Transitional Period 14-21 days, The Critical Socialization Period 3-12 weeks.

Disc Two started with Fear and Fun 5 weeks old and ended with Why Not Just Punish.

It talked about Understanding Fear Imprint Periods, Breed Appropriate Health Testing,  The Puppy Party, Potty Training Fundamentals, Is My Puppy Normal, Biting, Resource Guarding, Body Handling, The Outcomes Of Reward vs Punishment.

Disk Three started with Career Choices 7 weeks old and ended with Is Socialization A Guarantee.

It talked about Breeder Evaluations and Relationships, 8-9 week old Fear Imprint Period,  Practical Training Skills, Setting Up Socialization for Puppies 10-12 weeks old, Balancing The Risks and Benefits Of Early Socialization, How To Find A Great Puppy Class, Closing.

Disc Four was a break it down disc which was a Chapter By Chapter Recap and “To Do” Lists.

This past weekend I set up the puppy play ground outside and watched the rest of the PC videos. The puppies decided they wanted to watch to. Hopefully they are taking it all in and help me out when it’s time to teach them.

I first got the puppies used to this Kong tunnel when they were 3 weeks old in the house. I didn’t even have to show them what to do they all went in it by themselves and love going in and out of it now.

We then moved to the outside so they could try it out there. This was the first day they were outside, some of the puppies went in it and hid because they were afraid of the new surroundings that they never seen before, it didn’t take them long to warm up to the grass under their feet, the brightness of the sun and all the different sites and smells. They became little adventures in no time and now I can’t keep them out of the flower garden jungle. Glory and Thunders puppies will be going on 5 weeks this Saturday. They are becoming more confidant in walking, running, playing and exploring, they will wonder off a little more each day. They are encountering new situations, different people, different sounds each day.

Since they liked the tunnel so much I got this cat cube and they also love this toy. Little green girl started playing in it and it got a little tippy and tipped over on her and she recovered really well after she got up she crawled back in it and fell asleep.

I am so glad Amy introduced me to these videos, if you would like your own copy you can order it at Amazon.com.

You can follow along with PC on Facebook & Twitter.
