Re: Mom's who WON'T clean pups?
I have not had a litter ever but from what I have read up on it does happen and more than we would like to think about lol! Some on their first litter will pick it up after a few days and others won't until they have had a second litter. My breeder of my Dogue De Bordeaux had a 2nd time mother that was great...my pups mom. But his other female was a first time litter and did not keep the pups as clean until they were over a week old and then she caught on.
