Adding a new family member in the form of a puppy is an exciting time and filled with joy. Many people will be acquiring their new family member this winter. There are some things new puppy owners need to get up to speed on quickly.
Taking your eyes off puppies can be quite a mistake, that may threaten the life of your new family member. Please be sure to supervise your young and learning puppy, to keep them out of trouble and accidental harm to themselves.
Here are some puppy info links, notes and advice:
Puppies (and some adult or adolescent dogs) are in need of much learning and guidance. One of the most important things to do is to socialize your puppy well in the critical early weeks and months.
The first thing that you want to check is that your vaccinations are up to date, and that it is safe to take puppy out to areas with other dogs and puppies. Take a moment to have a discussion with your vet about the best plan.
There are things that new puppy owners are almost always surprised or concerned about. If you haven't owned a puppy for a long while, there are some things you may have blocked from your memory, perhaps with good reason.
Puppies are wonderful, and if you go about raising them the right way, they will seem a little less demonically possessed at times.
