So, a quick question for all the V owners out there. We picked our puppy today and will
get her in a couple weeks. One of the things we noticed is that she was shaking on and off.
I seem to recall someone on here mentioning that they had experienced this with their puppy as.well. Is that an indication of something bad or just a slightly nervous puppy?
She is 6 weeks old and (we think) the runt of the litter. Should we be concerned about the shaking
or is that a V thing?
We noticed our puppy shaking quite a bit when we first brought her home (she was 7.5 weeks). I think it was primarily nerves. We brought her home at the end of October and it was cool out, but not really cold, so perhaps she was a bit chilly too but who knows. She definitely stopped shaking so much after a couple weeks and now I just notice it when she's outside and it's cold.
Thanks for the replies. We did ask the breeder and he said that it was their first time in that area of the house and that it was normal. In the past 16 years I have had dogs but it's been that long since I've had a puppy so I am trying to remember all I know about puppy behaviour right now
Also, as I mentioned, I recall reading about someone's experience on this site with their V (similar to Christine's post) so we didn't want to worry pointlessly.
When the breeder I got my dog from did the temperament test, it was in an area of the house they had not really explored. Some of them were VERY timid. I don't recall any shaking, but that would not surprise me at all to see it. Then again, I'm not a dog expert ;D Make sure to post pictures wheny ou get her!
