The young Weimaraner pup requires a lot of care and special handling. As you are aware, we employ various helpers. Often these are relatives or friends. We have been blessed to find people who wanted to work an odd couple of hours here and there. It is essential to the process. While it looks like a lot of fun, it is like any job. A lot of work. Not every aspect is pleasant. There is the cleanup for one–pooh and whatnot.
Our grandkids and the great-grandchildren love being involved. Evangeline fancies herself a young Vet. Who can guess what the future holds? To her and her sister, puppies are the norm. Puppies benefit from their interaction–kids are different than adults. The way they talk, the way they pet them, and their energy level. (Haha) I am sure River will be getting in on the action–she does get to the counter to help but has not yet asked for the stethoscope.
Personal interaction is invaluable. Nevertheless, engaging the world –the scents, the diversity, etc. is equally essential. As the pups develop, the world expands. We try to help them experience as much as is possible to prepare them for their new family.
We only set the stage. Once the pup arrives at your home, there is a lot of work. There are many transitional stages whereby you can get into trouble with this breed. Avoiding every pitfall is not always possible. Regardless, we sincerely hope the work we have done lays an excellent foundational start.
