Hello all, proud owner of 2 new puppies.

    I got 2 puppies from my brothers first litter. I got them at 5 weeks and they are now 7 weeks. The mom did not want to feed them anymore, but they were all eating solid food so it was all good. I've been reading these forums for a couple weeks now. I've read the NILIF, it's pretty informative. I just read today about litter mate syndrome, but I don't think I have an issue. So far they sit, stay and give paw, but its still work in progress. I've had dogs before, but never an indoor dog and never a puppy I am literally raising. Tia for any and all comments, suggestions and advice for new puppy owner.

    Sigh...

    That is called weaning. It's normal and natural for a bitch to do herself if the breeder doesn't initiate the process first. Unfortunately, there are people who breed irresponsibly, without doing research first, who apparently assume that bitches feed their puppies indefinitely and think that something is "wrong" when the bitch refuses to feed the litter and even growls or snaps at the puppies when they attempt to nurse. For future reference, puppies should be with their mother and littermates until they're at least 8 weeks in order to more easily develop certain social skills like bite inhibition. You mention that this was this person's first litter. Hopefully it was also his last, at least until he learns what it takes to be a responsible breeder.

    Thanks for input. Yes it was my brothers first litter. He is learning and he did not breed them to sell the pups, they were all given away to family members.

    The second item to a dress in your post is literate syndrome. You haven't "had a problem" because you have only had your underage puppies for 2 weeks.

    Literate syndrome appears later. Most likely around 5-36 months. Then you have 2 teenager dogs who don't give a crap about you and only focus on each other.
