Fun And Practical Tips For A New Dog Parent
Getting your first canine friend can be quite an incredible experience. If you have been thinking of getting puppy or dog, check these tips for easy handling of the situation.
With millions of dogs getting euthanized for no reason, consider against the decision of going to a dog breeder. Most puppy mills are known for ill-treatment of dogs, which is why most pet parents are opting for adoptions as a better option.
Get the basics
Understand the food of your puppy/dog and ensure that you have puppy-proofed the house. Puppies need a crate for the overall training process, and you need to ensure that chewable things like your slippers and wires are out of his reach.
Teach him the essentials
That’s the most important part of getting a puppy trained for the next 12-15 years, and do not worry because adult dogs too are good at learning. Decide on a name that everyone in the house will be using, and spend a good time helping him under commands like ‘no’, ‘sit’, ‘fetch’ and ‘shake’.
Get ready for pee and poop
Pups can pee every 30 minutes, which means you need a full-time cleaner. Please bear in mind that a puppy/dog is like a new job, so time and patience are two very significant things to have. Don’t be mad at the canine for his habits, because he will only learn with time, mostly in next two to three weeks.
With a dog or a new puppy, your home surely has better energies around!
