I'm going to get myself that common breed too. I lost my Caucasian-boerboel puppy to a strange infection at 7 weeks.

I'll keep that until I'm able to get another bigger breed.

I love people that love their dogs regardless of the breed.

When to Separate Puppies from the Litter. Please be patient

When puppies are born, owners are often eager to welcome these new additions to their families. It might be tempting to assimilate them into their new human family immediately, or to pass them on to new loving homes.

However, the most important thing in this crucial time of puppies’ lives is to be with their mother and new brothers and sisters. If the proper timeline isn’t followed, the puppies could develop problems later in life, and the mother can experience medical problems.

PuppiesYoung Pups

During the first few weeks of a puppy’s life, it is extremely dependent on its mother, much like a human child. The puppy gets its food and love from mom. In addition, puppies learn important social skills from the mother and siblings in these early weeks. For instance, puppies learn by playing with their littermates that biting is bad, as well as when “play” might be too rough.

The recommended age for separating puppies from their litter is 6 to 8 weeks, according to Dr. David W. Reinhard, a consulting veterinarian for Nationwide pet insurance. By this time, puppies should have been socialized to their human counterparts, a process that takes place between 3 and 12 weeks of age, Reinhard says.

It is crucial that during this period, puppies are introduced to humans and increase their contact with people. “This is the time when they learn that humans are dominant and develop personality traits that last a lifetime,” Reinhard advises.

To help the puppies get acquainted with their human owners, give daily individual attention to each puppy to get him or her used to positive interaction with people.

This 6 to 8 week timetable fits into the period when supplemental feeding should be instituted and final weaning takes place, according to Reinhard.

It is important that weaning from the mother be a gradual practice — for both the mother’s health and the puppies’. This can be achieved by reducing the frequency of nursing and supplementing the puppies’ diets. This approach allows for orderly “drying up” of the mammary glands, Reinhard says.

“Abrupt weaning, especially when large litters are involved, results in congestion of the mammary glands, which can be painful and may lead to mastitis, the inflammation of mammary glands,” he says.

Potential Consequences

If puppies are separated from a litter too soon, some health and behavioral consequences may occur. Below are just a few of the problems that could take place if your pup is split from the group too soon:

Decreased weight gain
