  1. Raising Very Young Puppy

    Hi all .. she finally has a name I think we have settled on Kyra for now anyway I change my mind about about million times haha thank you everyone for your advice I have definitely taken a lot of it on board and its Helped She has discovered the water bowl on her own so she is drinking that when ever she likes she seems to have gained weight And is eating very well...I will be starting her on bones tomorrow. She has already starting using the pee pads.on several occasions today she ran back into her pen and use the toilet in there so I was quite stunned that she's picked up so quickly so from now on I'm going to be moving the mat outside and hopefully she'll start going out there. my Cavalier Max, he was desexed yesterday so he's not really in the mood for her but she is just kinda been snuggling up to him and being very gentle which is really good. all in all she's a pretty Placid friendly dog she absolutely hates the squeaky toys get very angry and growls and really does not like them at all so I will see how they go it's hard because I don't know if it's her playing or if it's her getting aggressively angry cause she doesn't like it, I have only ever had little dogs which their playfulness and growling is only very little where hers is quite loud and comes across as agressive but I don't know if I'm taking it the wrong way and she's just playing but it seems like she doesn't like the squeaky toys so I'm not sure about that I might keep an eye on it obviously I don't let her bite...I tell her No if she does She's happy to be picked up and woken up, around food she's fine. Very easy going along as there is no squeaky toy! ! I think she's just a bigger dog than I'm used to and got a Louder growl so maybe a few tips for those who have large breeds for the behaviours I should be keeping an eye on would be great so thought I'd give you an update because you have all been very helpful and I appreciate it.

    Ok Thanks for that, I did originally want Royal Canin as that's what I used to feed my Cav when he was a pup, however they were all sold out. I am taking Max my cav to get de-sexed tomorrow, so ill take Pup along and get her checked again, weighed and hopefully buy some Royal Canin. ill keep soaking the Advance in the meantime as she won't eat it otherwise. She seems to be up and about more, playing with her toys and being a little terror so that's good. I just gave her half cup of food and she didn't finish it, However I will just continue to give her the half cup and I guess if she is hungry she will eat it.

    Thanks for the tips This is her kibble soaked in a little boiling water and milk.. she wont eat it unless i mush it up to pretty much weetbix. . Should i keep doing what I am doing or just let her figure it out and chew it The Advance kibble is quite large! !

    Thankyou! Thats all I am doing is puppy milk mixed with her feeds. Im doing one tablespoon of soaked kibble and then 1-2 table spoons of milk.. is that enough or too much. . I don't want to under feed her How much does she weigh? And is she ravenous? And underfeeding her for a day or two won't be harmful. The food you are giving her will be vastly different to what she is used to anyway. And her name? We need a name :D She will eat all day long if I let her So its just the it . probably works out to be half cup a day roughly she is 2 kilos She is nameless wt the moment I can't decide. :-( any suggestions haha

    Thanks for the advise guys I might give the RSPCA a call tomorrow, as I don't agree with the pups going so young, just caress and shouldn't be breeding, I'm not sure of the laws here I'll look into it. I have her on Advance puppy kibble for large breeds which I currently am mixing with puppy milk I went and purchased a large play pen, soft toys and pee mats today she has already used the mat twice. . yay!! .. given her age and since she isn't yet vaccinated, is it ok for her to go out in my back yard on the patio area? I would like to encourage her to use the mats outside asap. She wees every time she wakes up and after play and meals so I'm onto it. I Have researched larger breeds and like you have mentioned.. portion control for healthy growth so I will definitely be keeping an eye on that. my cav is slowly coming around, will walk up and sniff her but then walk off.. baby steps haha. Raising a large breed is new to me so I really do want to try my best to do everything right, I will put her in puppy school as soon as she go as I have done with all my dogs, but I think training and handling will have to be more in depth as this dog will weigh probably more than me.😐

    Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right topic to be posting in however any advise will be greatly appreciated and I am aware this site is for the intended discussions of Purebred as I am a previous user of this site as I have always owned Pure Bred dogs and found this site very helpful however I have just welcomed a new 4 week old Mastiff X puppy into our family home alongside our 2 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (Max) Now before all the negative comments; I know 4 weeks is way way to young to take a pup from it's mother, however the Mother did not want the puppies and stooped feeding and neglected them - there were 12 of them and whilst I do not agree with the owner of these dogs letting these pups go before 8-12 weeks, she was anyway and didn't seem to care where they were gong as long as they were gone which is really sad, I know me taking one of them she would be going to a caring and loving home and not someone that would get sick of its crying and dump it 3 days later, now that being said I want as much advise as possible to ensure I am doing the right thing by our new Family member and to ensure the best upbringing for this little girl. I have raised 2 pups before, My first being a Maltese, I got from the breeder when she was 10 weeks old and 2nd my CKCS and he was 12 weeks old so I have had experience in raising puppies, just not from such a young age. Large breed is new to me, I grew up with my family owning German Shepherds but I have never raised a large dog from a puppy. The owner advised me they had not yet been wormed as she couldn't AFFORD it! which is ridiculous anyway I took her to the vet yesterday, got her worming tablets, booked her in for her 6 week vaccination and they weighed her and trimmed her nails etc, said she seems very healthy and a good weight. Last night was her first night with us, lets just say I got no sleep, she doesn't want to be put down, and I know she will be missing her mum and brothers/sisters, I had her on the bed with me to keep her nice and warm, but she just layed there and cried the whole night. I have not used the Crate method before, but would be interested in getting information on this, is she too young to be left alone in a crate all night?, should I bee keeping her with me? how should I be approaching the toilet side of things etc, I have used Puppy Pee pads in the past and found them very useful for training. the vet advised me to feed her 1 tablespoon approx 5 times a day, I have just been giving her soaked Kibble (Advanced) and puppy milk, she wont drink water so I will be buying a syringe today and administer it that way My CKCS does not want a bar of her, She runs up to Max thinking he is her mum and tries to feed, however he just runs off and doesn't even want to look at her, not impressed at all!! I don't want to force the new puppy on him and make him uncomfortable, also advise on how I can go about this as well would be great, should I be keeping them separated? He isn't aggressive at all, he is a very gentle dog, but I still don't want to risk leaving them alone. Thanks :-)
