Puppy Pile!

Puppies usually cannot regulate their temperatures until about 2 weeks of age so they need some assistance from mom, each other, or outside warmth. We provide a puppy heating pad in the center of the kiddie pool, so pups can move towards the heat, if they need. In this photo, the pups are piled together for warmth. We see puppies move to the heat or away, as they need.This photo is an example that pups are warm enough so they are separate in their space.
