Golden Retriever puppy – 3 weeks old


Our Golden Retriever puppies are now just over 3 weeks old. They are growing very quickly and we can see daily changes in their size and behaviour.

They are starting to be adventurous and explore their immediate surroundings. Interestingly even though the door to their room is open they do not dare to leave it … yet.

There is a lot of sniffing around, lots of paw showing, initial power plays and lots of squeaky barking.

They are also starting to eat food other than mum’s milk, which means they will start growing even faster.

Golden Retriever puppy 2 weeks old


Our Golden Retriever puppies are now two weeks old. They are growing very fast and are in excellent health. At two weeks a major development for puppies is the opening of the eyes and first very clumsy steps. The puppies are strong enough to explore space around them within 1 meter.

Mind you getting so far from the pack and mum means major drama, and once they realise they are too far major alarms are given – lots of puppy squealing. Some of them try to bark already and the biggest pups even mastered a form of growling.

They are so incredibly cute it is hard to leave them alone. I think their adorable looks and behaviours justify well the term “puppy love”.
