How do you prepare your home and your family for the coming of a new puppy?
Your new puppy won’t know that it is wrong to pee on your carpet so you need to prepare a lot of puppy pads, and be sure to have a lot of kindness and patience, reward your puppy rather than punishing. When it comes to puppy accessories, it is better if your puppy will get used to wearing a collar, and choose one that is specifically for puppies which are adjustable and lightweight.

Your puppies are teething and their sharp teeth will tend to chew on everything, so you need a mixture of puppy toys from soft ones to hard ones so your puppy can get the relief he needs and to protect your furniture. You need to be firm with your puppy and replace whatever your puppy is chewing with his toys to keep him from chewing on your furniture and pillows, and remove all dangerous and delicate items such as tablecloths and cleaning supplies away from your puppy’s reach. It is best to use firm and negative noise if your puppy chews on your furniture or any unacceptable behavior so you can get the response you need from your puppy without you hurting him.
Bringing a new puppy at home is a very exciting and fun experience, so don’t hesitate to show your love and kindness, and you’ll receive tenfold. When it comes to training, remember that it takes repetition, and use gentle and rewarding training system instead of punishment. Your puppy needs to receive the right food to meet his daily nutrient needs, feeding following the right schedule, and being mindful of what your new pet needs. It is important to have a complete immunization for your puppy as well as his papers to prevent future problems.
Our pets deserve to be given what they need, the best care, love, and attention because they provide a lot of health benefits, most especially in the psychological aspect of our being, helping us relieve stress, a source of pride and joy, and companionship.
