Cavaliers and how they develop.
I am one for keeping records and record everytime a bitch comes into season, when they stand and when they start and seem to finish ?
I also weigh the puppies twice a day for 2 weeks and then every day until they reach 3 pounds in weight or 48 ounces - the limit of my Avery sweet scales.
The charts do reveal certain details. For example, EVERY puppy born into our family will increase its birth weight, 6 fold at least, in 4 weeks.
I always feed Colostrum for the first 2 days and colostrum and welpi milk mixed, for the next 2 days. At 4 weeks I introduce minced best beef and allow the mother to feed milk for 8 weeks. I believe that Mums milk is best !
Mine then get Farleys and welpi right up to 10 weeks when they have their first jabs and go to their new homes after 12 weeks, with both injections given.
I dont believe in rushing pups out the door but the negative side is that the parting is more intense and my Jennifer always cries.
The pups are always well socialised and love humans. Never nervous.
Always keen to know how others do things.
