How often to change flooring?

3 posts in this topic

How often do you guys change out the paper and whatever you have in your puppy area. They are now out of the whelping box.

Thanks!!

My wife is an EXTREME clean freak. I would say at least 3-4 times a day for us. We really went through the newsprint. They still end up with that "puppy" smell. I think the lab instinct to roll in anything smelly is genetic. We used sheets and blankets until weaning when mom stopped cleaning up after them. If you're letting them run free, it's easy to tell who went. Number of puddles + number of piles / 2 = number of puppies. If the numbers don't come out, you're either missing a pup or there's a present waiting for you somewhere. grin.gif

I agree... 3-4 times a day was the norm for us... after 7 weeks, seems like every paper in town has been used up... you're down to using ads and paying the newspaper box $1.00/day to get 4 copies.... The summer pups are great, we have a portable 6' pen that I put out in the yard in the shade and let them while away the day out there... gives you a break form cleaning the pen!

Good Luck!

Ken

      @Rick - think this should be moved to South Central?  For now, I will post a link to this one.

      1/8 oz Lindy Frostee Spoons in glow red are a killer choice too, sometimes you won't need bait and sometimes you will. When they are preferring bait I'll throw on a few waxies, a minnow head, or a whole minnow.

      Haven't heard anything about Andrusia, haven't really seen anybody out there lately.

      Resorts moving around to stay on walleyes. Warm weather and a lot of fish.  Most catching in 29-31 ft with glow red, chartreuse, pink and gold with a rattle on jigging spoons tipped with minnow head or tail.  Dead stick plain hook and live minnow or smaller jigs.  Walleye and sauger mix with a jumbo perch, eelpout and sturgeon as well. Electronics improving catch rate as fish are following jigs 4-5 feet off bottom to strike.  20"+ of ice on the lake in most areas along with only 3-6" of snow.  Ice roads allowing full sized vehicles.
      The Rainy River has had a great morning and evening bite but lots of slush on the ice right now. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Great fishing continues up at the NW Angle.  20+ inches of ice on ice roads traveled by resorts in good shape.  Resorts are fishing in 21-29 feet of water with a nice walleye, sauger, and perch bite. Best colors include glow red, silver, pink, green and gold.  Slab crappies in good numbers being caught in Ontario in 28-34'.  Crappies caught in 25' or greater have high mortality rate, thus keep up to limit and move on to another species.  Work through resorts and stay on ice road.
