Re: introducing dad to his puppies

dont be silly what do you think happens in the wild.... when the moms go out hunting the young males are left to protect the pups. this is just a myth if the mother is happy to have them there and they are showing no signs of aggression then whats the prob??????

Well it isnt the wild is it.?
And i dont belive that any dog should be able to interfer with mum and pups no matter if there the dad or not just my views
When we have a bitch and litter they are away from any other dogs its less stress for the dam..
The pups dont know its there dad and the bitch will not say oh hes the dad to these pups its fine


And might i add that the dogs can change very quickly belive me

Re: introducing dad to his puppies

My dogs are not allowed near the pups untill their eyes are open and they can get around pretty well. I go by the bitches some don't mind the males being around some don't like them being anywere near their pups.

If/when Freyja has pups they will most likely never meet their dad untill in the case of 2 of them they go to live with him or in the case of the others they may meet him at a show when they are old enough to attend them.

When Rosie had her pups she was in the sitting room with them and the other dogs were not allowed in there. William my show greyhound was Rosie's best mate she was the only one that could go near his bowl when he was eating and he's known her since she was about 3 weeks. He had just come back from his walk and the door was not shut properly he shot in and went to the puppie pen. Rosie was allowed out to him and she kept going to him then to the door of the pen she wanted him to follow her. William ended up on his belly half in the pen half out licking Rosie's pups. She was happy to let him do this. The pups were about a week old I wouldn't normally let a dog near pups that young but Rosie obviosly wanted to show her new babies of to her best friend.

What do you mean by "simples cick"


We dont have any other dog anywere near litters until the pups are up and walking them selves ..so at about 4 weeks
And if mum still doesnt want other dogs near her pups then they wont.
The first times the others dogs are allowed near puppies the are NOT left alone..
Each to there own but this is how we go about things.
Crazybones i never said once that there was a problem i was just going to give my views on the subject.

Re: introducing dad to his puppies

wolves play a paternal role in rearing & caring for pups but dogs dont have this paternal instinct. I never allowed my male near his pups unsupervised & he wasnt allowed in the same room when they were very small, Luna the mother would have been very stressed, & to be honest i wouldnt have trusted him either.

Smile Re: introducing dad to his puppies

I have the same view as Devildogz when ever we have pups the bitch and pups are in another room and not until they are around 4 weeks old,
when there up and moving around will they meet the rest of our dogs not because i dont trust my other dogs i do 100 per cent they wouldnt hurt a fly.

But i dont want to stress the bitch out at the end of the day they are her pups and its upto her what she feels is right for her brood if she is happy for the other dogs to meet they then fair enough.

And to be honest my stud dog doesnt like puppies (even his own ) he would never hurt them but they have a thing about chasing him and pulling him around so he just keeps the way or gets on the sofa.

Re: introducing dad to his puppies

As I said mine are allowed to see the pups when the pups are mobile. But not Bandit he is never allowed near the pups as he doesn't like them Owen on the other hand is fine with them and loves to play.I have Bandit's great grandson here but Bandit is not allowed out to play with him as I know he will grumble at him and if Archie pushed his luck would snap. Bandit is known as Grumpy Grandad at home
