How to handle a small puppy

Sunday, November 20, 2011

For an insecure young puppy, being picked up by a human is a very scary experience. Even though a puppy’s mother used her teeth, we could do this a lot easier. Slip one of your hands under the puppy’s chest and tummy, then pull him up and cradle him against your chest. Use your other hand to support the front legs which could be shaking. Remember, the puppy has never been this far off the ground before. This is a real bonding moment in your puppy’s life. You could even feel his tiny heartbeat and he can hear yours too. Keep his head underneath for support when your return the puppy to it’s mother. Don’t be surprised if he runs back over to you.

Remember, your pets count.
