You may have noticed that several of these links are by the same Trainers. That is because I respect their training methods and they present the lessons in an easy to understand and follow format. You can't go wrong with subscribing to their channels as they have many instructional video's that I use myself.
The pups are one thing but when mom gets into the act chaos ensues!

Changes to the puppy pen today include platforms and boxes. This keeps their environment fresh and interesting while giving them new challenges to work out.
March 5, 2019 Moon Litter Week 6
A couple of days ago I added the FitPaws equipment to the puppy pen to help increase their proprioception skills.
Yesterday I added the tunnels but today, when it's too cold for outside playtime the ante must be upped!
March 1, 2019 Moon Litter Training Plan
Important! Moon Litter Adopters:
Now is the time when you should be thinking about setting up a training plan for when your puppy comes home so I will be making several posts in the next little with some of my favorite books, videos and on-line traing course suggestions.
I will introducing the pups to MARKER TRAINING soon. Marker or Clicker Training gets amazingly quick results but there are some basic concept that you should be aware of.
Donna Hill explains it much better then I possibly could so please watch the following videos in order.
So sorry for the late entry for the pups turning 5 weeks old. It has been a very hectic but a very good week!
Last weekend we moved the pups out of the bedroom and into the dining room in order to make room for the expanding weaning pen and to allow them to experience more of everyday family life. They have started eating puppy mush and have been fairly successful at using the litter box. If this nasty weather ever stops they may even get a chance to discover a taste of the great outdoors later this week.

Just like children puppies resist sleep despite being over tired.
Best played with sound turn way up.
February 21, 2019 Here We Grow Again
Pups are now 4 weeks old and growing rapidly so the puppy pen has been expanded to accommodate their increasing need for space. A potty area has also been added to the pen so that they can start the housetraining process.
We are continuing with adding a new sensory item to the pen every day and now that they have the ability to hear we have regular sessions where music and audio books are played.
Puppy visits started with a family of six over the Family Day weekend. The three, very well behaved and impressive children were absolutely awesome with both the puppies and the adult dogs! I couldn't have asked for a better group to give the puppies a positive first introduction to kids and strangers.
The adult dogs are being given individual periods to come in to investigate the puppies. Today was Delilah's turn.
February 15, 2019 The Name Game
In order to individually register puppies with the CKC all puppies must be have a unique registered name to go along with their microchip number. I will be registering this litter with the CKC using "MOON" as the theme. The following is a list for you to choose from. You may also suggest a name for consideration as long as it fits into the the theme and fits into the rules and guidelines of the CKC. Your choice in a Call Name ie Fido, Rover, Maple etc does not have to match the CKC Registered Name although it can be a personal choice for those who would like them to i.e, Eden's Moon Pie aka Sheldon if you are a Big Bang fan. Please pick and email me 2 name choices in order of preference for your puppy's registration papers. If the names are highlighted in colour then they are already reserved.
Eden's Muskoka Moon (C&J) aka Maple
Eden's Harvest Moon (A&S)
Eden’s Moon Beam
Eden’s Moon Shadow (J&L)
Eden’s Moon River (N&R)
Eden’s Moon Spell

February 15, 2019 Moon Litter. Week 3 Sensory Items
February 12, 2019 Moon Litter Week 3
Puppies are 3 weeks old and averaging around the 5 pound mark. Lots of changes in the last couple of days since the puppies eyes have opened as they are a tad less focused on their stomach and have become more aware of their surroundings. They are now also in the wiggle, wobble, we all fall down stage as they try to motor around the larger box so Lana is helping the transition by standing a bit while they nurse. Not sure they appreciate the help though :)
February 8, 2019 Moon Litter Week 2
February 4, 2019 Moon Litter Day 13
Day 13 and the Pups eye lids are starting to show signs of opening at the corners so I expect them to start to be fully opened within the next 24 hours or so. While the lights are normally kept dim, except for brief husbandry duties and picture taking, they will now be kept low to protect their sensitive eyes for the next little while. Lana is starting to sit up while nursing which adds a new challenge so their mobility has picked up with more attempts to use their back legs. What I love the most about this stage is that they have been showing signs of enjoying interactions with me in the last few days and are starting to seek me out when I join them in the whelping box! Last night there had been some panting and crankiness so unless we get another intense cold snap there should be no more need for any additional heat source! Latest scent introduction has been a Maple wood, towel rubbed on the other dogs and a cedar branch.
