Since your puppy will grow exponentially in their first year it is super important to see that their nutritional needs are met.
Go to the nutrition page to see what the pups are eating and the supplement that they are getting.
The Nuvet supplement is the best I have found , you should consider using the powdered kind first. The pups love it on their kibble!! The vitamin is mandatory. I consider it health insurance.
Staying on Lifes Abundance food is not mandatory.....
I will DOUBLE your health contract , if you continue using Dr. Jane's health food.

The fresher and cleaner your pets food is, the better it is for their bodies, minds and spirit.... just like us humans.
Consider all the problems pets have, like cancer and tumors, for example. Many of these cases can be attributed to the food that they are eating. According to the Animal Protection Institute, two thirds of the pet food made in the United States contains added preservatives, coloring agents, solvents & oils too rancid or deemed inedible for humans.
The institute reports, " Of more than 8,600 recognized food additives today, no toxicity information is available for 46% of the ones used in our dogs food.

ALL NEW PUPPY PARENTS
Please call me for your questions!!!
It is my heart that you have. I want you both happy.
If your baby is crying there is probably something wrong. Either you have unknowingly fostered some behavior or you have a brand new baby that is somehow uncomfortable.
If your baby is crying, check to see that he/she is warm. If they are not on the bed under the covers with you they are probably cold
There are places to buy a heat mat
3' X 5' and bigger!!
Ridgebacks get cold easy !!
Their regular body temperature is 101
If your baby is crying check to see the last time they had a walk. Sometimes a little diversion and expended energy
is the answer.
Basic comforts must be maintained.
AND , you must also discover your new role as confident/calm packleader.

At four weeks the pups begin eating solid food.
At five weeks we expand their living space. The pups begin to play and poop!
At 6 weeks the pups begin to move away from the litter box to poop.
As the pups age they become more aware of their surroundings and den area...and poop farther and farther from the den.
When you come home with your new pup...You will create your own routine.
You will begin going outdoors to potty.
We recommend 3 meals a day. 4 is even better. Here the pups eat 5 meals a day.
Just pretend you have come home from the hospital with an infant...now what right :) Plan on spending at least a couple of days adjusting to your new family member and the new responsibilities. Lucky for you there is an instruction manual! See above training material recommendations.
So as you can see, much like a human...the pup is always growing and changing. The one constant is eating and pooping.
The ridgeback learns very very quickly. Use the above training material to build your language/communication.
It is imperative the whole family be on board togethor with training. It is very confusing to your infant when there is NO consistancy.
