Puppy Care 101.
For anyone that owns a puppy they must agree that the puppies need exceptional care for them to grow normally. Whether you are owning the puppy for the first time or you have them since birth, the responsibility is immense. The fulfillment that comes with watching a puppy transform into a dog is second to none. Before making a decision to get a puppy make sure that you are going to do what it takes to ensure the well-being of the young pet.
Like any other pet , a puppy needs to be fed a balanced diet to ensure that they grow into strong dogs. Industrial produced food for puppies come as either wet or they could be dry as well. Both the options have good nutritional content for your puppy so don’t be torn between the products. There are also natural foods that you can prepare at home you are not limited to commercial products alone. A Labrador puppy is different from a Chihuahua puppy so make sure that you have some consultations with your veterinarian to know the nutritional requirements of your puppy. Health condition, breed and age of the puppy will be key determiners of what your puppy should eat.
Like human beings, puppies also express allergies when fed with some foods that don’t go well with their bodies. Puppies younger than four months need to be fed three times but as they grow older they times fed could be reduced to two. The diet fed to the puppies needs to be accompanied with water to keep them hydrated especially on a dry diet. Make an effort of availing fresh water all through and in a clean bowl to prevent contamination. Sleeping is very important for puppies, they need lots of rest just like kittens. Make sure that the puppy has a comfortable and warm place to sleep in the house.
If they like a crate or a certain corner of the room make sure that they have a blanket that feels cozy. Do not encourage the puppies to sleep in areas that you are not comfortable with otherwise they might get attached to them and find giving them up hard. When it comes to toilet training , puppies work with some help. You will identify some behavior just before the puppy goes, they will spin and around or sniff around. It is at this time that you take them out to the spot that they should be doing it and after some time they will learn. After some time they will be used and adopt the routine themselves even when you are not there.
