Tilly’s Australian Labradoodle puppies are now 5 weeks old! At 5 weeks, the puppies begin to be fun! They now are interested in people and want to follow you, to play with you and to have you pick them up….there is nothing like being wanted and loved by a puppy!
One of the reasons for this change in the puppies is because they are about weaned from their mother. They now recognize another hand that feeds them. They also are just developmentally, more social. They are more curious, more playful and more social.
Their little teeth are coming in pretty good so they are wanting to chew! They are starting to think about some dry food to crunch in those sharp teeth. They like chewing on toys. They like chewing on each other, until one gives a yelp! And they like chewing on peoples toes! Thus we generally wear enclosed toe shoes to spare our little tootsies.
The fifth week is just a wonderful week, when the puppies really start to become themselves! And of course, they are looking more like the beautiful Australian Labradoodle puppy that they are!
