You just brought home your new puppy and both of you are in for a period of adjustment. Here are some quick tips in caring for a puppy.

  • Make sure that your house is safe for your puppy. Don’t give him run of the house yet. Keep him in a puppy proofed room where there is nothing that he could ingest or destroy.
  • Feed the puppy quality dog food either wet or dry three times a day until he is 12 to 16 weeks old.
  • Make sure that your puppy is crated when you are sleeping or out of the house.
  • Keep the crate free from blankets or things that he chew up.
  • Never leave the puppy alone outside or tied up while you are in a store. You are asking for trouble.
  • Make an appointment with your veterinarian as soon as possible to examine your new pup or give him is shots if he hasn’t yet been vaccinated. Your vet will discuss the feeding and training requirements with you.

You and your puppy will enjoy a long, happy life together.

Remember, your pets count!
