    Hello,
    I am new to this and am so excited to be a part of this group. We have 3 -11 week old labs, littermates. Chocolate female, chocolate male and yellow female.
    We are having a lot of issues:
    Puppy fighting
    Food over excitement
    High energy
    Biting and jumping
    Eating sticks and leaves
    They are incredibly intelligent and they know their name, sit command, stay and down.
    They still get up several times to potty overnight, but sleep well in their crates.
    They are healthy and have had vet visits. Our vet is aware of their behavior and assures us this stage will pass and to stay the course with their training.
    I would appreciate any stories, tips or encouragement.
    Thank you.

    Congratulations! Curious about how you decided to raise 3 pups from the same litter...seems like a daunting task!!

    Blimey, you have your hands full. Are you giving them plenty of one to one time on the own?

    Thank you! We raised 3 beagles for over 17 years. Every two years we got a beagle, (all females)Misty our Red, then Ginger our Tri and our little Lemon girl ClaraBelle. Misty and Ginger were 15 and 13 when they passed in 2017 and ClaraBelle was 14 and she just passed in June. So we raised these fluffers alongside our baby boy and girl and it was so magical and special for us all.
    As you can imagine, there was something missing the half of last year, so we decided to put our time and love for some new fluffers and we were blessed to get theses 3 little babies. Brand new chapter and challenges! LOL!! They are so rambunctious and happy, but it is difficult at times to hold their attention when their brother or sisters are distracting during training time. But our vet assured us they will calm down a bit! Hopefully soon:)

    Yes! We do have our hands full! LOL!
    And yes, they sleep separately, eat separately and we all take a pup and do some one on one training and also we take one for a ride or just separate them in the yard for some independent play. So this week they turned 12 weeks and I am leash training and we are working on the stay command independently, because when they stay and you call one of their names, they all come a running LOL! :) We are getting there, but very challenging:)
