Newborn puppies cannot see or hear but will fix on any source of warmth. For the first 5 to 6 days they cannot control their temperature and can easily become chilled (or overheated).
Their mother will monitor their temperature and keep them just right. She will keep her puppies clean and stimulate urination and defecation by licking them.
Puppies spend their first few weeks mainly sleeping, only waking up to eat. Puppies must drink often especially in the first two weeks of life.
Puppies usually double their birth weight in 8-10 days.
