When do Alaskan dogs wean? About 30-40 days after birth, the mother’s milk decreases and the pup cannot be fed, so Alaskan puppies start weaning about a month and a half after birth. It is recommended that the owner slowly help the puppy wean, give the puppy transition period, so as not to adapt to the puppy.
The WEANING PERIOD FOR Alaskan PUPPIES IS USUALLY ABOUT TWO MONTHS AFTER BIRTH, BUT IN FACT VERY FEW FEMALES SUCKLE TO THE FULL TWO MONTHS. At ABOUT 30 TO 40 DAYS, THE Alaskan BITCH’S MILK WILL BEGIN TO DECREASE AND THE PUP WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE FED.
So weaning starts about 45 days after birth in Alaska. But owners should not be too judgmental, because every Alaskan puppy has a different constitution and development, and will be weaned slightly differently. Owners should decide when to wean their Alaskan puppies based on their actual development. And weaning is also a method, not immediately broken.
Some owners do not have the time or patience to wean Alaskan puppies slowly, so after the lactation period, the Alaskan puppy is forcibly separated from the mother and the puppy is weaned. It saves time, but without a transition period, Alaskan puppies will not adapt to such a sudden change, which can cause indigestion, anxiety and even illness.
Therefore, it is recommended that the owner take a gradual approach to weaning, in the preparation of weaning a few days before the puppy and the mother separated for a few hours, and then put the puppy back to eat milk, after eating milk will be separated from them. In this way, the separation time is gradually increased, the number of times of eating milk is reduced, and a small amount of pet sheep milk powder and puppy milk cake are fed in the middle. Repeat THIS FOR SEVERAL DAYS UNTIL THE PUPPY IS FULLY WEANED, WHICH IS LESS HARMFUL TO BOTH THE PUPPY AND THE BITCH.
