Momma and pups

7 posts in this topic

I just had a litter and am keeping two of the females. I have a kennel run and two houses. Is there any concerns with keeping all three dogs (mother and two pups) in the same kennel. thanks sullyman.

Cut their ties to the mother.

I could go on and on but the pups are going to need to learn from and depend on you.

Would be careful with training too. You need to try and separate them as much as you can.

I wouldn't worry about it. Several years ago I raised a daughter with her mother, the daughter turned out to be a fine hunting dog. The only difference I noticed was that this pup did not harrass and chew on the older dog, her mother, because her mother didn't hesitate to put the teeth to her.

I also had a litter and kept a female pup. No problems, my pup is a great hunting dog because she learned from her mom.

I see no reason to separate them also. Just be sure that when you have training sessions, that each dog is trained separately and out of sight from the others so there are no distractions.

I have a mother and daughter and they work very well together but they were trained seperatly, I would seperate them for awhile and let the pup get it's own independance from it's mother it will only lead to a stronger dog in the field and you have nothing to loose and everything to gain by doing this.

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.

    •   Wanderer, you better scaddle on out of these parts before your soul gets taken and your brain gets fried too!
    •   Yeah, you better stick with Bob's girl above old timer. She wouldn't swallow what your selling either!
