Glory’s pups are now halfway through their fourth week and are growing and changing. They have been using their UgoDog litter box system since around three weeks and are doing great! Since they are growing and producing more “waste” the litter box needs to be scrubbed out twice a day. When things get to that stage, it’s time to introduce them to the plastic box/wood pellets type litter box. The wood pellets are easier to scoop little poops from and the pine smell helps “deodorize” the urine smell when they pee.
They’re getting big enough that they almost need to move to the bigger puppy pen in the puppy room, but before that I want them to get the hang of their new litter box. This plastic one we start with has the side cut down so it’s easy for them to access. When they get a big bigger we’ll give them a box with full sides and they will easily hop over the edge to get in the box. The sides help to keep the pellets inside the box and contain the mess a bit better.
Here they are checking out their new bathroom. 😉
We’ll give them a few days with their new box and then move them to the puppy room into a bigger space with a couple litter boxes and their first crate to start getting used to sleeping in.
