Caring for a puppy that has only recently been removed from mum and the littermates is mostly a warm and enjoyable experience. Your new companion or new member to your family will have some major hurdles to overcome, and so will you. Hopefully you will have done some thinking to make sure that your chosen puppy is appropriate to your circumstances in size, temperament and maintenance requirements. Think of your responsibilities for providing warmth, shelter, feeding, preventative health routines and safety (from the road, other dogs, poisons etc). Is it going to be an inside dog, an outside dog or both?
The young pup has an excellent chance of moulding quickly into your routines. However, the health of the pup, dietary preferences and behavioural traits will quickly fall from your control if your are not sharp. The following notes are provided to help you along the way of being a puppy owner. Don’t hesitate to ask our team if you have a question that concerns you.
