The Beau x Rizzo Puppies: 4 Weeks Old

Well the pups are now four weeks old and the last week has been a week of big changes for them.  They now have a new space that's located on the main floor of our home in a busy area of the home next to the kitchen and living rooms.  They can hear all the sounds of family life, smell food cooking and it won't be long before they are venturing outside into the yard.

The puppies are now out of the whelping box and into a wire pen that they can see out of.  They have a sleeping area and a well defined potty area which they are using quite successfully.  

We continue to rotate different soft and safe toys for them to explore and are playing the radio as well as desensitization sounds on a regular basis.
Rizzo is doing an excellent job nursing her puppies and we have not introduced solid food to them yet.  That will come next week.  They are in great weight and their coats are healthy and shiny. 
Their coordination is improving although they are still very much toddlers. More and more they are interacting with one another, their mother and with their environment but next week is when we will really see their play and engagement take off.  Stay tuned!

I hope that following the development of this litter will bring you all much happiness. I invite you to like our Northrock Barbets Facebook Page where photos and videos will be posted on a regular basis for you to enJOY.
