Having a new puppy to take care of is certainly one of the more challenging things that pet owners have to do.Â There are a number of tasks that have to be completed day in and day out in order to keep your puppy happy and healthy. Â
1. Provide Attention
Your puppy will want to feed on the attention that you give him.Â After all, a dog is a man's best friend, so he'll start portraying that from the moment you bring him home. Make it a point to provide him with the attention that he needs.Â Doing so will help to make him more sociable with humans and will make him a more friendlier dog overall.
When puppies are young they are in the critical growing stages of their lives which means that its important that they are properly fed and cared for from a nutrition standpoint.Â Be certain that the food you are providing you puppy is healthy and that he is getting the essential vitamins and minerals that are needed in order to promote strong and healthy growth.
3. Obedience Training
Another puppy care tip that is as equally important than the others is to train your puppy to perform or avoid certain things that will make him more obedient.Â If you plan on keeping your puppy in the house, you'll want to train him to go outside when he has to go to the bathroom. Housebreaking is perhaps one of the first things that new puppy owners work on when they bring their new friend home. Other training activities might include teaching your puppy to site, come, and stay, which are a few of the more simple commands that you can teach.
There are many other duties that you will face as a new puppy owner, and each new task you take on will present it's own challenges and rewards. If you pay close attention to your new puppy and do whatever it takes to keep him happy and healthy, you will have a long lasting and rewarding friendship for many years to come.
