Road's End Papillons Updated Menu of Real Food Items.

When any Pap from us is leaving our home for a new family, I always recommend to keep feeding the same items for a few days at minimum, to avoid additional digestive upset, besides the usual transfer stress.
Here is a updated list of the items I offer my Papillons on a weekly base.

Puppies are eating a full fledged meal, just in a somewhat smaller version, and meat is chopped into smaller parts. They get 3 meals  per day at that age. (8 AM, 1 PM and no later than 5:30 PM)

Please note, I am on a budget, as I have multiple dogs. You, most likely, an owner of one or perhaps two small dogs can get very creative, by adding many more ingredients, and more of "organic" items, grass-fed meats, etc.
When you introduce your Pap to a new item later on, offer first a very small amount, next to a meat your dog is already eating on a regular base.
I always serve 2 kinds of different meats per meal.
A balanced diet is achieved over the course of a week, not a day.
Variety is the key- of meats!
Organ meat 2-3 times per week is also essential to create a balanced diet.
A bone- meal I offer 2 times per week.
Chicken Drumette. Some dogs eat all bone, some eat only partial or none.

  • Chicken:

Liver (Organ meat)
Boneless breast
Drumettes (the only bone meal I serve currently, which I am comfortable with)

  • Beef:

Heart (I get that grind from the meat department)
1 Meal
Kidney (Organ meat)
Liver (Organ meat)

Hearts (when available)
Gizzards (when available

  • Pork (boneless)
  • Some Fish

Above items are the main ingredients completing a meal. ((2.5 - 3 ounces for a 4-7 Lbs dog/per meal, twice / day)
Each meal gets a little "topping" \.
Below is the list of these items I offer, one per meal:

  • Greek yogurt
  • 4 % Cottage Cheese
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Finely minced veggies  (done in a blender); mostly green leave + carrot. ( I serve between a teaspoon and a little less than a table spoon once/ day)
  • Hard-boiled eggs with shell, minced (I hard-boil the eggs, and put them  in the blender with their shell for needed calcium, and blend them until minced)---1 teaspoon to 1 table spoon, pending of the size of dog.

Beef Back Ribs

Recreational Bones:

  • Beef Back Ribs
  • Soup bones (The meat dept. cuts the bones into smaller parts for me)

Puppies leaving Litter at 8 Weeks vs 12 Weeks

Puppies leaving Breeder's home/Nest/ Mother/Litter at 8 weeks vs 12 weeks of age.

Occasionally puppy buyers are questioning the leaving of a desired puppy age 8 weeks vs 12 weeks.
Here my personal opinion, observation and experience in my 12 years of Papillon breeding, concerning this subject.

Between somewhat 3 and 6 weeks puppies learn to get to know each other, and socialize with each other. From 4 weeks on they are getting to be "little dogs" they learn how to be a dog by playing, catching, roughing up each other, learning dominance and submission.
Mom shows much less interest in them and leaves them alone a good amount of time, but not forgetting to return to have the milk bar available.
Puppies start also on slurry meals besides mom's milk, if still available (most do, some don't) at 4 weeks of age.

Puppies from 6 weeks to 14 weeks start socializing with people. They are ready to learn.
This is the time where they learn to fit into their environment, where they bond.
And as more those puppies get socialized in all aspects from car driving to meeting other people, places, as better these puppies will be for the rest of their lives.

So ask yourself: why should the puppy, you possibly desire first become attached or bond to the breeder? The home of the breeder? the daily chores, other dogs (Paps) and then being ripped away from that already processed environment to start all over again.

At 8 weeks to my experience is an absolute perfect time to let a puppy go to their new home to be loved, taught, and pampered by the what should be forever family.
 You, as the new family, owner will have 6 weeks of time to shape your new friend's life, to fit him/her into your life style the way you would like.
