Maternity Instincts In Dogs

It is no secret that mama dogs care for their newborn puppies – staying close by their side for the first weeks of their life. Puppies are born pretty helpless and rely on their mother for milk, warmth, and care. During these first few weeks, the mama dog can be extremely protective of her puppies growling and snapping at potential threats.

Mama dogs form strong bonds with their litter, and this is the first form of love, protection, and safety the puppies experience. These bonds are also essential for helpless newborns to survive, be it in the wild or homes. No wonder this mama dog ran to the man begging for help! 

What Can The Cold Do To Puppies?

You might think that dogs are more protected from the cold than humans due to their fur, but this is untrue! Dogs, especially puppies, are susceptible to frostbite on their tiny paws and ears. They even run the risk of hypothermia when exposed to extremely cold temperatures for too long!

Some suggest that you give dogs struggling against the cold some lukewarm, not hot, water. You can also slowly increase the heat in your car and house, and cover them in a blanket. However, be careful of warming them up too quickly or placing heaters or warm water bottles against them – this could lead to burns on their skin.
