Did you know that health issues like hip dysplasia can be caused in the whelping box? There are plans to help with raising pups to be good, healthy, confident, well rounded pups such as puppy culture. The plans make breeders aware that things such as substrate, which can massively affect how a puppy develops. There are other things that can also affect a puppy's joints during those first 8 weeks - such as how they lay when they feed from their mother, do they keep legs tucked up to the side or stretch them out back, what is worse? Are the pups kept a sensible weight or are they big chubby pups? These are little things that can make a massive difference to the joint health of a pup.
