Wow! They're huge already! If this is their first go on solid food, their mother has done a mighty fine job of nursing them. I can see their markings are beginning to shape up too -- they really are beautiful little things.

Here's the latest puppy-pic.

The puppies are now starting to explore the world outside their pen. We've been going "walkabout" in the play yard from time to time. They are also becoming little land sharks, using their teeth for more than just slurping down puppy gruel.

Great looking bunch

We do the same Neo for our kennel as well

AKC Siberian huskies
AKC yellow labs

I think it is very important and i am very happy to see that you do it as well.

What a great idea to make a video.

I know when my pups go to a home, i have 5 pages of questions and care sheets, and i was thinking about adding this info that we have been doing to that as well.

Great job

Tammi, I'd love to see the information and compare notes. Perhaps you could start a new thread on raising puppies? I would certainly enjoy such a thread.

As to the latest developments, several of the puppies now have fully erect ears. Cassiopeia, the sable girl hiding in the "hungry pup" photo, has one erect and one that is tulip, but will probably stand up later on.

While scooping the other day most of the litter were having a great time following the scoop pan around the yard. In a stroke of brilliance I decided to see if the behavior would transfer to a target stick. Indeed it did, so we are now in the process of training a bunch of 6 week old puppies to target. That will make future behavioral training ever so much easier.

That is a great idea... i will do get my things together and i cant wait to see your notes as well.. It is super great to find another that cares about a breeding program. Training Program and that takes pride in their animals.
I have notes as well from Jen, her and her hubby were in the iditirod this year, she was the one with all AKC husky team and her dogs and her got hit by a snowmobile, they are from here in Ely mn.

I am a dist for Eagle Pack foods. I used to make my own slop for my huskies. But right now they are all on Eagle Holistic program.

I got 4 big orders of soaps, and bath gels and lotions to get out to France, Alaska and a few other places, then i will start getting my things together for you...

Gosh, it's hard to believe the litter is now six months old, and ready to start harness training.

Actually, harness training started in November, with the puppies harness and hooked up to me for little canicross runs. This was to teach them to keep the tugline tight and to give them a 'feel' for pulling and running.

They had their first little puppy run in December. My training partner was in charge of that run, and she just gushed about how well they did.

They had their second little run on Sunday. I posted a note about it in my blog, along with a video on YouTube. You can catch the vid through my blog entry at http://oldschoolak.blogspot.com/2009/01/pu...puppy-runs.html or directly on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDAE9mM8BLs.

Swanny,
Thank you for sharing the video. I really enjoyed it. They have grown so much. You should be very proud.
