Little worried! :(

Hey Guys.

My 10 week old puppy Monty has acted very strangely the last few days! :/
He is usually a very outgoing and confident pup and is a bundle of energy. However, I took him to his first class on sunday where he met other pups his age and since then he has been very tired and a little lethargic, with the occasional silly 30 minutes where he is really active.

Also, this morning he didn't seem to eat his food as good as he usually does?

Is he still tired from sunday?

Hope you can help!
Sam

P.S Apart from this he is becoming a dream dog!

Does your pup have his vaccinations? Are you sure all the other pups had their vaccinations. He really should still be tired from a sunday class. Puppies do rest alot when they are growing but if you could I would take him into the vet just have them check his temp.

Is he drinking, going to the bathroom like normal?

Has he had all his shots? I know from some people that puppies should not be together when they haven't had all their shots because they can come down with distemper or Parvo. I would take the puppy to the vet, just in case. I know some of the members have had problems with parvo and puppies and the rescue i work for has had problems with puppies and parvo. take Monty just to ease your mind and keep a close watch on your baby.

p.s. i don't think Mondy should still be tired from Sunday. Puppies recover very fast.

I think I would take him to the vet - 3 days is a lot of time to recover for a pup and now being off his food.

Another possibility is - did he get shots just prior to the class and is having a reaction to the shots rather than catching something for another pup?

Most classes require proof of vaccinations prior to enrollment. My puppy class only requires the first set for all participants.

I know when Bear went to his first puppy class (granted he's a bit older) he was wiped for the next day and a half. Then he was rearing to go. I'm concerned about him being off his food - though he might have gotten quite a bit of food in class (as treats).

I'm glad he's doing better. I'd bring it up to the vet when you see them next or you can always call your vet and check-in with them.

Thanks!

He was really tired on Monday and yesterday, but today he is back to his exuberant self. Concerning food, he eats everything, and he eats treats but doesn't eat his meals as quickly as he used to. I know this is good, but I find it weird that it's changed over night.

How is Bear? He's a really good looking dog!

Puppy classes in NZ don't start until pups have had all three vaccinations, & we have to produce proof of that. I was lucky to be have pre-puppy school with my trainer, which is one-on-one with just, puppy, owner & trainer ...did that once a week for four weeks & I found it very helpful. Loki started those at 8.5 weeks old & for 24 hours afterwards he slept more. Puppy classes are much more tiring, as they usually go crazy with one another before settling down to do training. Sounds like your baby has perked up again, so all is well. Loki went through at phase of eating with a bit less gusto at around that age ...I do clicker training, so he was getting lots of his kibble that way, & eating less at actual mealtimes. Sounds as if you really enjoying your new baby. Off to take Loki for his morning walk.

Thank you!

Yeah he went crazy on Sunday! I was tired watching him.

Don't get me wrong, he doesn't sleep all day long. But when he is awake he seemed a little docile than usual. My dad came home tonight and he was really excited to see him for about 20 mins, then went to sleep...which is fine. So I think he is just starting to mature a little and has acclimatised superbly to his new home.

Could it be that I over did it with the treats yesterday and today?

Sam
