New Puppy? Needs and Essentials!


When adopting a new puppy there are a few things to know to make the journey a little less overwhelming. If you have never had a dog before or the only do you ever had was your family dog that was trained and raised by your parents, the task can seem a but daunting. We are here to help you with a check list of sorts to make the transition of ownership easy and fun.


Step 1

Once you have committed to a puppy being in your life you must take a few precautions.

first things first is find a vet and go see them.

Just like humans a puppy needs a checkup to make sure everything is ok and the puppy is healthy

free of parasites internal and external such as Flea/Worms.

They vet will also guide you to proper vaccinations for your pup. Vaccinations are important because your puppy has not immune system yet. until your new best friend is fully vaccinated you should avoid taking him/her on a walk or being outside. There is nothing sadder then falling in love with your new pup just to watch him/her get Very Sick and possibly die.

when adopting a Puppy it is recommended not to take the pup from his/her parents or siblings until

the age of 8 - 10 weeks of age.


Step 2

Essential items for the House.

Food & Watter Bowls

Bed

Collar and Harness

Carrier while small and transporting to and from to avoid outside while unvaccinated.

Brush

shampoo

Some toy especially Chew Toys


Step 3

Basic Training

Basic Training is a huge deal while your puppy is a puppy and still moldable.

things like Potty Training if not handled properly can get out of control and ruin your home.

also things like

Sit

what to chew and not chew

Learning not to jump on people

and much more

Training not only improves behavior but also gives mental and physical stimulation essential to proper development.

Puppies need lots of attention as much as possible if you do not have the time to give them especially while they are young you either make time or you do not adopt or you are getting yourself into trouble!

and Finally exercise .

while young your puppy is still growing to do not over do the exercise portion a walk of 20-40 minutes a day with some adequate resting in between should be plenty for them and you can adjust as they grow.


Hope this helps the new puppy owners understand that its not as daunting as it may seem but also encouraging you to do the right steps to grow a beautiful relationship with your puppy.


Thanks for Reading .
