Default Dog show photos and puppy questions

I'm back with photos I havnt posted in a little while, been really busy with the crazy chis! It's been such fun, watching them play and suss eachother out.
They are just about used to eachother now which is good. Millie has taken to them really well overall she's just much happier in general and so I am happy too. I took millie and Gucci to their first ringcraft class on Wednesday night and to another one on Friday.
They both did really well and it was good fun. I will need to get some show leads though as the leads I took weren't the correct ones.

Can anyone recommend somewhere to get a nice show lead?


I weighed them all today and they are all progressing healthily.
As for house/potty training they are doing great, obviously we have had a few accidents although it hasn't been that bad considering there is three puppies running around!
Also pixie and darcy had their second injections on Thursday.. I was surprised because Darcy was really brave and didn't cry (she is the most timid out of the group) and pixie cried loads (she's very outgoing and enjoys a play fight) so was surprised to see how they reacted!
Also I had a question about play fighting, so when they play fight I'm not totally sure how to go about it? Because some say you should stop it incase they fight when they are older and other says leave them be as its natural and will grow out of it? I just don't want to have issues of them fighting in an aggressive way when they are older, like at the moment it's only play fighting but I'm not sure what it could progress to?

So does anyone have any advice on how to treat this behaviour?

We went to a dog show today it was great! The dogs came along and had a great time. It was amazing seeing all the chis competing and it was a lovely sunny day.

Play fighting is completely normal in puppies. The only behaviour it will lead to is happy exhausted puppies lol

thanks for the advice, I just sometimes worry when millie starts fighting because her heckles go up sometimes and I wasn't sure whether this wasn't normal but that makes me feel better

Raising the hackles is a sign of arousal, it has nothing to do with aggression (although a dog would be in a very aroused state if it was at the point of acting aggressively)
When you have multiple dogs it is important to monitor all play, and make sure everyone is having a good time. Some dogs will get bolshy and push others around, it is vital to watch the reaction of the dog being pushed around in these situations.
As an adult, Millie should be teaching the puppies good manners, and putting a stop to any unwanted behaviours during play.
Play is very complex in dogs, they show a huge range of behaviours. as long as everyone is happy and no-one is getting hurt leave them to it, but watch the body language.

Awww how cute is Gucci looking!! Lovely lady. Love your friends Pom too 😍
And as play fighting goes I agree with Stella its totally normal, you should see pablo and Neeva play fighting the noises they make are hilarious. But if pablo gets fed up he lets her know which is good and she listens! They tire each other out so keeps mummy happy! They'll sort things out among themselves it's totally natural.
