Milo & Alfie had another visit to the vets today for more worming treatment and we are a little shocked at their weights. Milo has gained 1.3 kilo's since he last visited the vet, he is now 5.6 kilo's and Alfie has gained 1.4 kilo's and is now a whopping 6.6 kilo's:D The vet was very impressed with them and their health:):) So our feeding regime and the diet they are on is just fine although I will now have to up their daily amount according to their new weights...
Here are some new pics of the boys this week....

They certainly do Jayne and when you see them every day you just don't realise its when someone else appears who has not seen them for a few days and they say omg! they've grown so much....so we had better enjoy this as their not puppies for long are they?:(

Lovely to see them playing together. Beautiful fluffy coats ....had you just bathed them?
Hi Sue
No they had not had a bath then but plenty of grooming really just getting them use to the brush and comb.....when I say plenty I'm a bit OCD when it comes to my dogs appearance....a legacy of trial work I'm afraid:( but I love when people notice so thankyou:)

Trainer told me small puppies should walk for 5 minutes for every month of their age, twice a day.

So, if pup is 3 months old then 15 mins twice a day ....or a 2 month old would have 10 mins twice a day.

Of course they will also have play at home as well as some training.

Does that sound right to other people?

Poor you Sarah. It seems that most vets now say just the one week after Nobivac. :(:( I even took Basil out to our local park before the recommended week. It's a personal choice but I felt the socialisation was important. I know most of the dogs that visit the park and kept Basil in the middle on the mowed cricket area rather than round the edge in the longer grass where most dogs walk and toilet. I kept an eye on what he was nibbling too! Basil has met so many breeds of dogs now but I knew for a fact that they were vaccinated. If I was unsure I lifted Basil. I guess I am lucky in that I already have a group of dog owning friends through Rufus and my retired greyhound Zoe.

What make vaccine is it? Buddy was novibac the vet said 1 week after but i toke him out just up the road on day 5 naughty i know but i know all the dogs around here as its only a small hamlett were not classed as a village! And we just stayed on the road not very interesting for him but it got us out the house.
I think all us new mums have been so lucky with the weather and im sure we will all be wishing we didnt have to walk our pups when it starts throwing it down and we have to come home with a muddy monster !!

Hi Sarah

Biscuit had Nobivac and our vet said to wait only 7 days. Took her out literally in front of our house on day 6 and everything has been fine. It's strange that vets have different opinions on the same vaccine :eek:

We were going absolutely stir crazy and the relief of just going for a 10 minute walk was enormous!! Best wishes, Karen x

Hi Everyone
Our's go for about 15 mins in the morning and approximately 30 mins in the afternoon if they show signs of fatigue we carry for a while but with having two at the same age they exercise each other fit in the garden which becomes a bit of a raceway at times.....one person will say one thing another will say something different its just observing your dog and using your common sense really:):) We started short and have built to this stage and I can honestly say they are ready to do more.:eek:
