Default Have Some Questions About My Puppies.

Last night i got 2 Husky X puppies. They eat, drink, and kind of poop fine i notied one of the puppies pooped a lot when i brought it home but im assuming its because they didnt let it outside to go, poor guy.

They are scared of everything though
if i pick them up they will start to shake and when i put them down they try and find somewhere to hide, will they always be this timid or will they get better?
and how long does it usually take to become less timid?

I currently have them in a corner in my room not closed off so they can roam around if they feel like it with the water and food right beside them i put some toys and pillows there for them and are just leaving them alone i check on them every half hour and take them outside to do their business every 2 hours
how often should i feed them? iv just been putting food in when they finish it.
any help would be appreciated

Hi Remix and welcome to the forum.
First off congrats on getting puppies! Is this your first time?
Second normally whoever you got them from should be a good source of information, although there are plenty of people here who will be happy to give you some support.
Third, how old are they? That can make a huge difference in how they adapt to a new home.

Good for you taking them out often, that way they have a chance to poop outside.

Can you check out our FAQ section? You might find some of your questions answered there.

Sounds good.
If you didn't get any vet records you might want to take them yourself and get them checked out sooner than later (kind of a doggy physical, better safe than sorry). Puppies can come down with all kinds of things and a lot of them will give the little darlings diarrhea too. Also it helps them get used to being handled by a vet when they're young and that can make it easier if they need vet care when they're older. The vet will also be able to tell you how old they are by the teeth.

Good luck!

ya i plan on it i know they have theyre 1st puppy shots but need to get the second shots and deworming done so it will be by friday (when i get paid)
i read the FAQ's but nothing told me why they are scared all the time and don't act like Puppies they just sleep and kind of army crawl around i havent really seen them up walking around much unless its when i put them down and they walk away and hide behind something.

Welcome to df remix! Others are far more expert than I on puppies! I am betting that they need more than 17 hours to get used to a new home though!

I got my current dog when she was a little pup of only 8 weeks. She was a rescue and afraid of nearly everything so it took her a bit of time to settle in and feel secure in her new home. I had crate for her that I made into "her space"..it had toys, things to chew on, a blanket, etc. in it and she could come in and out at will. It was also her 'safe place' to go and be left alone when she was feeling a little overwhelmed or frightened. If you've only had these adorable pups for about 17 hours, it's going to take them some time to figure out this is home and feel secure. I would make every interaction you have with them a positive "happy" one and give them a little time. I can't wait to see more pictures of them!

Hi Remix and aboard to Df good on you for rescuing these pups They certainly look older than 4 weeks I hope they are as they should not really have left thier mother so young as up to 8 weks old they are taught by thier mother and litter mates within the litter the basics of play etc what to do and what not to do!! Also well done for taking them out for pee/poo regulary in the safety of your own yard/garden don't forget when they do it out side praise them till the cows come home Please don't take them to the dog park or other places where there are lots of dogs as they haven't had their booster vacinations which take place at around 12 weeks old then leave for a further 10 - 14 days for full immunity. Start to introduce them to different noises and sounds and different enviroments. For Eg: play some music quitely at first and over a period of a few weeks build the volume up slightly and increase the length of time the music is on so at the end of say 1 month and things are going well you can move on to another noise everything in
moderation and build it up slowly, do some hoovering etc then the pups will realise there is nothing to be scared of, even doors banging etc should be done so the so pups will get used to these sounds.

When I first got Nipper she was on my lap and I put some music on and she shook like a earthquake! But I read my puppy handbook and did the music thing regulary and also didn't try and calm Nipper down like saying good girl it's ok as this apprently reinforces that it's ok to shake, So when this happens by all means if they are on your lap leave them there but don't stroke them or talk to them and within a week or so there will be no shaking etc and whatever noise bothered them won't bother them again. Another good way is to get them to interact with you play a game ( with some noises in the background like a radio on or the Tv etc) with them like roll a small ball for them but I would do this when you find out how old they really are!

When they are 8 weeks old then training can and must begin this will shape the pups future behaviour and tell the pups what is expected of them Please continue to ask as many questions as you need and they look great in the pics too. Keep us posted on the pups progress and Good Luck ATB
