I just got off the phone with my breeder and she said that my 9 week old pup still likes to nurse even though he's already eating solid foods. He chases his mom and tries to nurse. Is this normal? Should I be worried?

My Lexi had 4 pups & weened them at 5 wks old - But they still followed her around to nurse about once a day up untill 8 wks old.
Then all of a sudden at 9 wks no nursing at all.
I even had my 15 wk old sneaking under Lexi to nurse when she saw the others nursing!

No need for concern. While mom is drying up it's very tempting for the little ones to try to nurse. It's comfort and it's habit for them, like human babies. Mom will correct them and her milk will soon be dryed up which will eliminate the problem.

I agree. Nursing at nine weeks is not a big deal. My females dry up about that time and Mom will stop him when she does not have any milk to give.
