Golden Retriever Puppies Week 6
Golden Retriever Puppies Week 6

Welcome to week 6 with our litter of Golden Retriever pups! We’re getting close to the end of our journey with our little, furry, fuzz balls.

Our original plan was to keep half the litter to train as service dog puppies.

At 6 weeks old these little pups start showing enough personality to start thinking about who we would keep to raise as service dogs and who would become loving pets.

This week was also the first time we gave a few mock tests to see which of our pups had the moxie to be a service dog.

So, what are some of the traits we are looking for in a future service dog puppy at this young age?

  1. A confident puppy.
  2. A puppy that is willing to work for his partner.
  3. A puppy with a calm temperament.

*In week 8 we put the puppies through a full scale temperament test. As you will see some were better suited then others as candidates to become service dog puppies in training.

Golden Retriever Pups – Week 6

Puppy Shave Mark Color Weight (Day 36)
Liberty (Berlin) Right Back Leg Green 6 lb 15 oz
Tank (Bear) Left Back Leg Black 7 lb 5 oz
Trooper (Buster) Right Shoulder Red 6 lb 9 oz
Patriot Left Shoulder Blue 7 lb 12 oz
Spirit Lower Back Pink 7 lb 0 oz
Gunner Upper Back Brown 7 lb 1.5 oz

These little pups are starting to get some girth especially Patriot who was pushing 8 lbs at only 36 days old!

The size gap between our smallest and largest puppy keeps getting bigger as Patriot is well over a pound heavier then Trooper.
