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.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!

    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
