How to Look After a New Puppy!


Are you thinking of getting a new puppy, or
have you just got one and you’re wondering what to do next? Well we’re here to help with our top tips
on how to look after a brand new puppy. Now tip number one is to find a really good
vet. Now we recommend doing this before you bring
your puppy home because the first thing that you need to do is take him to the vets to
make sure that he doesn’t have and birth defects or health difficulties. Tip number two is to make the most out of
your first vets visit. Now this includes asking them things like
what puppy food they recommend and how much you should be feeding your dog, setting up
a good vaccination plan, discussing the safe ways that you can prevent parasites for your
dog, and also talking about things like what signs you should look out for whether your
dog is suffering from any illnesses and also discussing things like whether you should
spay or neuter your dog. Tip number three is making sure that you shop
for quality food. Now your dog is growing in critical ways at
this time, so you need to make sure that you are feeding him the right amounts, and you’re
feeding him the right food that is going to benefit him. Tip number four is establishing a good bathroom
routine. You need to teach your puppy where he can
and can’t wee and poo, so you need to be housetraining him, taking him outside on a lead and making
sure he knows exactly where he can, but it’s also really important to remember that you
should not be negatively reinforcing anything, so you shouldn’t be shouting at him if he
does have accidents inside. Tip number five is looking out for any early
signs of illness. Now your puppy is susceptible to more illnesses
when they are younger so you need to be looking out for things like lethargy, lack of appetite,
loose bowel movements, vomiting, wheezing or difficulty breathing, any of these things
if you notice them then you need to contact your vet immediately because as I say they
are more susceptible at this age. Tip number six is obedience training. Teaching your dog commands like sit, stay,
lie down, come – all of these are going to set up your dog so that he doesn’t get lost
in dangerous situations, and so that he socialises well. As always we recommend positive reinforcement,
never shout at your dog for doing something wrong – always reinforce good behaviour with
treats and praise. And our final tip – tip number seven – is
socialisation. It’s so important, I can’t stress how important
it is, to make sure that your puppy has the best kind of socialisation, especially between
four and six months old. This is when he is going to start accepting
other animals and people and he is going to start understanding the world around him. Now, you may remember from last week that
we had a competition on as usual, and the best comment wins, and we’re very happy to

    When potty training make sure you feed and water your puppy before taking them outside to prevent accidents in the house. Also pay attention to your doggies body language.

    Whenever I think my dog needs a poop, I always take him on a lead, into the garden and wait a bit in the spot he usually poops in. Always works! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜Š

    My dog tip! Sorry it's kinda long :/. when your considering bringing a fury friend into your home, it is very important to think about the size dog you want. If you have a small house or live in an apartment you may want a smaller dog because they don't need as much space as a big dog. Small dog can be harder to potty train, but big dogs grow so fast that they can be harder to handle. If you have small children in your home, big dogs may accidentally knock them over. Big dogs tend to be better guard dogs because of their size and bark. Some small dogs don't need as much exercise as big dogs. Most small dogs have longer life spans. Both sizes are great dogs and it is all up to you, to choose which size.
