Our puppies grow up with a certain regularity. Growth is included in the concept of development: changes in body weight, height, exterior and physiology of the dog. If the pet is developing correctly, and it is growing as well. For dogs, there is a gradation on the main stages of development. Since dogs live a little and grow quickly – need to do pictures of dogs as often as possible.
The first stage.
The first stage – intrauterine. Stage is very important as it is now laid the health of a puppy. So it is important to take your child from a good, healthy mothers, the responsible breeders. Of course, at this stage, to make pictures of the dog can only use medical equipment. Not every owner can take pictures using ultrasound.
The second stage.
The second stage – from birth to 1.5 months puppy. At this time, there is still a puppy from a breeder and the entire responsibility for its development and growth is only on it. That’s why I’m trying to take old puppy, let the responsibility fall on me. The problem is that breeders are not interested to arrange a photo shoot her newborn puppies.
The third stage.
Third stage – puppy, 1.5 months and 6 months. The main part of the dogs sold during this period of growth. Now the responsibility for the proper development lies with the new owners. This is the time of rapid growth and dentition. At this stage it is necessary to do more pictures of beautiful dogs. Since rapid growth gives you a very small amount of time to create images of cute puppies.
Fourth stage – teens, young, from 6 months to a year. Growth continues and is still intense. During this period, the puppy becomes a young dog. This is the next period, which will give you a large number of quality pictures of your pet.
Fifth stage – young dogs, from year to 2.5 – 3 years. Growth is almost finished.
Now let’s see how it changes the height and weight of the dog in each period. All data is for informational purposes only. Each individual develops his own way, but the general trends are the same.
Up to 6 months puppy weight increased by about three times, and the height at the withers – almost twice. In the six months ending growth of bones. Therefore, if during this period the long bones did not develop as expected, due to malnutrition or disease, the proportions of the body will be broken and fix it would not be possible. And your pet will never be a model. Your adult dog will not have the right exterior. In other words, up to 6 months pup only grows in height. Besides his ears grow quickly and become “adults”, even though the dog has not grown yet . That is why our puppies are lop-eared, especially Shepherd. During this period, the owners are able to do most cute pictures of dogs, as in young puppies are very big ears, cute look and fluffy wool.
After 6 months, it is time to increase the flat bones, ie begins development of the sternum, the dog grows “breadth”. This continues until about the year.
On this development and growth is not an end, but only slowed down. The final formation of the skeleton, that is exterior, goes up to 2.5 – 3 years. In small breeds growth ends earlier, and at large – later.
To control not on the eye grows and develops pet, you need to do simple measurements and record them in a notebook, but it’s better to use your camera. Up to two months doing measurements and photos of the dog every five days to six months – every 10 days, and then – once a month.
By following these recommendations, you can not only grow a healthy puppy, but to gather a large collection of pictures of your pet.
