Feeding time is an hourly job and with eight teats there is room for everyone at the milk bar.

For those of you who don't know. When Bernese puppies are first born the black bits are pink, i.e. nose, pads on feet and as the days and weeks go by the black pigmentation appears so by the time they are eight weeks old then a lot of the pink has turned black. Also Bernese puppies don't have their ears and eyes open to start with, these open over the first weeks.

If you are wondering about the various different materials the pups are on? our whelping box is made of UPVC which is very clean and hygienic. The bars are made of the same and are there to protect the puppies from Amy should she roll over there is space for them to move to the side to avoid getting squashed. The whelping box is then lined with non slip vinyl to make it more waterproof and easier to keep clean (it is one permanent clean up job with pups). On top of that the pups have two fleece whelping mats which are machine washable and have a stiff plastic liner to keep them flat, (these are changed several times a day). Above the whelping box is a heat lamp which is directed onto one of the whelping mats. The pups have the choice to lye on the whelping mats under the heat lamp or not and or on the vinyl, therefore staying at the perfect temperature.
