My litter of pups are 4 weeks now and only met the dad once when they was in the pen. But he doesn't know what to do so he gets excited himselve. He is 1 year old. Shall I wait till the pups are a bit bigger and older?

Or let him see them regularly to get used to them being around him.
Since he is still young himselve he thinks they'll play.

As long as the mum doesn't object, he needs to be around them to get used to them but not able to get to them to avoid him accidentally hurting them. The novelty will wear off after a few days.

Have you got the puppies booked in for their BAER tests yet?

Not yet we've been trying to find a place closer to home.
Seems like the closest place to grimsby is Derby. But we have no way of getting there. It's almost 100 miles away.

We are planning to try and get them done ASAP, need a way to travel there with them. No one in my house has a car, unless there is one closer to home. They'll get them done.

We're trying to ring the Derby one to get a price estimate for the entire litter.

Both parents are fully hearing in both ears, of course we want the puppies to be tested.

We recently had to travel 260 miles/8hour round trip to get ours tested. Its very important and should be considered when deciding to breed. Hip/Elbow scoring for mum and dad is also recommended....
