Three Weeks Old

There’s been a dramatic change in strength and mobility over the last week. As the puppies grow, their rear legs catch up to their front legs.

Most puppies can stand and sit by 3 weeks, and are starting to totter. As they develop their individuality, they’re also becoming more independent. You don’t just see them as a row of identical fat sausages!

Three weeks old is also when puppies start teething—cutting their first baby teeth. There’s a reason the teeth are showing up! Breeders start offering solid food at this point. A litter can be challenging for the mother, especially if it’s a big one.

Seeing three-week-old puppies interact with their siblings is so cute.

Now the play begins, and you’ll even hear the puppies growl at one another.
