Raising pups and socialization

At birth there are no other people present, so that the mother can give birth in silence and peace, without stress. If there are other people present at birth, there will be a chance that the mother will look for another place to give birth because she won’t know what to do. With us they know that the whelping box is their place to give birth, so they always want to be in there (with the door open). So when she has contractions, she can go in and out whenever she wants. We do the same as in nature with mother in the cave and father guarding in front of the cave to keep predators away.

The first 10 days we take no pictures (in our hands). We let mother and child alone so that she can really enjoy her puppies. (We only take them in our hand to weigh them)

In the first 2 weeks, no other people are allowed near the pups. The mother stays in the welping box as she wants with the door closed (so she gets the rest that she deserves) The mother lets us know when she wants to get out of the box to do her business, and early on wants to ge back in the box as soon as possible. If you pick up the pups often, then the mother will get restless because she is worries that you’re going to take away her puppies.

When the pups are 2 weeks old, people are allowed to come over and see the pups and even hold them (we make sure the people use disinfecting gel first) The mother wants to come out of the whelping box more often, and will show it when she wants to feed or wash the pups.

At 3 weeks the pups will try to walk through the whelping box.

Between the 3 and 4 weeks old we start feeding meat “Real Nature Wilderness True Country Junior” Chicken and Salmon. Optimally tailored to the needs of ‘small wolves’ because we want to stay close to nature. (That remains our goal) And they love it and of course they also drink at the mother.


Chicken with Salmon (95% PURE MEAT !!!)

Perfectly balanced to meet the needs of little “wolves”: TRUE COUNTRY JUNIOR Chicken with Salmon is a complete feed for puppies and young dogs of all breeds and sizes from weaning up to approx. 24 months (depending on the dog’s size). Original nutrition based on the diet of wolves

With a very high meat content

Contains fruits, herbs & valuable ingredients
Grain-free formulation
Natural ingredients, supplemented with valuable vitamins and minerals that are useful for nutritional physiology; no added artificial preservatives, colourants or flavours.
Adapted to the different stages of your dog’s life.

When they are 4 weeks old they get their first drops in the neck against fleas and ticks and at 6 weeks old they can go outside for the first time in the small puppy playground and when they are well used to it, they go to the large playground. When it rains and/or is freezing cold, they go to the heated indoor playground..

At 6 weeks we start with puppy kibble, the brand we use is called “Panzi Fit Active” and is of super quality and comes from Hungary and contains natural antioxidants and only natural ingredients. This food can also be ordered in Belgium and will also be delivered to your home in the Netherlands.

For mother and pups

  • Healthy Heart
  • Good digestion
  • Strong bones
  • Healthy coat
  • Healthy teeth

In the period when the pups go over to solid foods, they get milk kefir (probiotics) for extra support, which they find delicious and refreshing. This gives good balance of bacteria in the bowels.

By the use of kefir, the food gets digested and absorbed better, but milk kefir is so much more beneficial and has a lot of healthy benefits and it is pure natural.

When they are 6 weeks old they are vaccinated (1st vaccination) and when they are old enough they can go to the big field where they can play with our adult French Bulldogs Bulldogs (on our own property) they also get real collars (which are a lot firmer)

When they are 9 weeks old they get their 2nd vaccination and with 12 weeks their 3rd vaccination (Rabies/rabies) and 2 weeks after the Rabies vaccination they get the 4th and last vaccination then they are ready for a year (Note: the rabies puppy vaccination is valid for 6 months)

Because our pups always go to foreign land and have to stay longer and we spend more time on socializing, what we do with a lot of love.♥

From years of experience we know that you’ll have a lot of fun with your puppy, and they will also give you a lot of love back ♥
