You’ve finally decided to bring a furry friend to your household but are a bit concerned about how to take proper care of him? Don’t worry, most of us dog owners have been there at the beginning.
But with time comes experience, so I would like to offer you, first-time owners, some tips on how to guarantee your dog’s well-being during those difficult first months.
Make Your House Pup-Friendly
Making your house doggie friendly is much less stressful than for a baby, but you’d still need to do some work.
Store items that could cause potential harm to them on high shelves (medicines, cleaners, chemicals, breakable items, etc.), keep garbage cans covered, and get pet gates to keep them away from certain rooms.
Feed Him The Right Food
Your dog’s health will highly depend on how well he eats.
Rather than spending your dog’s budget on toys and esthetic things like clothing, make sure you get him high-quality food.
Make Light Training Sessions A Regular Activity
Have you ever heard the saying: ‘You can’t teach new tricks to an old dog’? if you have, then you know where this is going.
With this, you’ll be spending quality time with your newest friend while teaching him to behave.
Introduce Your Puppy To Other Dogs
Get your pal to the dog park at an early age, but as long as it’s safe.
Make sure your puppy has all the vaccinations before meeting others so he isn’t prone to catch any disease.
Safe interaction with other dogs at an early age is important to avoid aggressive behaviors in the future.
