Q. We have a stray dog under our deck, and just discovered that she has 5 or 6 puppies. They look healthy, but I would like to move them all to a safer place in the yard. How can I do that?
I discovered a stray dog living under our deck. We tried to feed her and befriend her but she would run away. I thought that she had had a litter of puppies (saggy boobies and not a big belly) and someone had dumped her. Well it has been a few weeks and we still can?t get near her. We have 160 children coming through our home per week she has never show any aggression she just basks in the sun then runs away if we talk to her or come near. We haven?t seen her in a few days and discovered that she has burrowed into our oil house and has had about 5 or 6 puppies. They look healthy, enough. I would like to move her and them into the yard where they will be safe, our yard is fenced. The oil house is right on a busy street and we fear the worst. Can we move them or touch them, what will mom do?

A. You would be better off to feed here and water her right where she is until the litter is 2 ½ weeks to 3 weeks old. Use very good food so she has no reason to leave- it also gives you an opportunity to bond with her.

Don’t push her too much or she may try and move the litter – no eye contact, no talking to her - no nothing – walk up – put the food down and leave.

I have been doing artificial inseminations on my own dogs since the late 1980s, I don't know how many times I have done an AI but certainly between 250 to 300 times. I currently have a success rate of well over 90%. Our 1 hour DVD shows how we collect a stud dog an immediately inseminate one of our females at our kennel.

Puppy Tube Feeding Kit

Feeding tube is 16 inches long (41cm) and approximately 3/32 inches (2.7mm) outside diameter. It is best to store your feeding tube and syringe at normal room temperature. In colder temperatures the feeding tube will become rigid and stiff. At body temperature, the tube becomes softer, resilient, and completely flexible. Syringe is 35cc and attaches to the integral funnel end of the feeding tube. The opposite end of the feeding tube has a closed rounded tip with 2 side port 'eyes'.
