Yesterday morning when we peaked through the blockhouse door to look at the monitor like we do every morning around 8 a.m., we noticed that Lana had moved the pups to one of the outside den boxes. Because she hadn't moved them up until now and because she moved them the night after we touched them for the first time, we decided to hold off on social sessions until we could talk with White Oak about how we should proceed. If Lana were to move the pups every time that we touch them, we would want to stop the socialization process to keep the pups safe. While the whole family was outside yesterday, we did a more thorough cleaning of the blockhouse. We also gave the parents their monthly flea and heart worm preventative in treats.
Today, after talking with White Oak, we have decided to try another socialization session. Because Lana waited until that night to move the pups and didn't move them right after we left, we think she may have just been ready to finally move them. After separating the parents inside away from the pups, we walked into the exhibit to where the A-frame den box is. One of us touched all three pups by stroking them once on their back. The pups moved away from us towards the back of the den. We took some photos and video and then left the exhibit.
