Eat, Sleep, Play!

Eat, Sleep, Play!

Cha Cha’s puppies have reached the 8-week milestone and are primarily focused on the basic needs of eating, drinking, sleeping, eliminating and playing. Play is at the forefront along with lots of sleep.

Play and agility is at the forefront of their development. Most puppies’ 8-weeks old are "clumsy". After all they just learned to walk at 3-weeks of age and run at 5-weeks of age, which was just a few short weeks ago. They are developing their gross motor skills that help them to run, play, and "hunt". Their fine motor skills will come later.

After a rough and tumble session of play Fandango and Mumba take a well-deserved nap. Puppies that are 8-weeks old sleep approximately 18 to 22 hours per day.
