Today I have some interesting dog facts about puppies. Did you know that puppies are born blind, deaf and without teeth? They are also only able to crawl during their first week. First sight will develop between the age of 2 to 3 weeks. The puppy starts to see.
During the ages of 3 to 7 weeks the first set of teeth – or milk teeth – appears. The adult teeth start to come through between 4 and 8 months. That’s usually when puppies start to chew on everything!
Puppies do and need to sleep for 14 hours every day for a healthy development.
Some puppies reach sexual maturity already at the age of eight months, but later maturing is also not unusual.
At the age of one year puppies are considered adults. Physically this age equals a 15 year-old human.
Puppies need love! Frequently petted puppies are healthier and happier. They are also better behaved.
Puppies should not be separated from their mother and siblings before the age of eight weeks.
That’s it for today!
Cya next time with another interesting dog fact.
