Puppy Care Tips For Beginners

Bringing a dog in to the house is fun. Watching your puppy chew up your favorite pair of shoes is not. In order to start out together on the right foot – and WITH your favorite pair of shoes in tact – there are a few tips you should follow. Not every puppy will come in to your house and behave, so with a little guidance and a few things in place, it can work out well for everybody involved.

Keep the House Clean

Do you remember seeing a toddler crawl around the house and stop at every little piece of fuzz on the carpet? They probably immediately picked it up and tried to put it in their mouth too. The development of a puppy is similar to that of the toddler. If there is something that looks interesting around the house, then it will probably get put in their mouth. If you aren’t watching close enough, that item will probably get chewed up beyond recognition before you can save it. To prevent your favorite items such as shoes, books and toys from going in the trash, clean them up. Why leave temptation out on the floor for your puppy? They could even harm themselves if they got a hold of the wrong thing to chew up. Keeping your things picked up will not only keep puppy out of trouble, but it will potentially keep him safe too.

Pay Attention to the Signals

Have you ever had to toilet train a child? If so, you will know the process is usually not easy or quick. It can take several months even before the child will go on their own, all the time and without incident. The same goes for a puppy. It can take days or weeks to get them trained to go outside whenever they have to go to the bathroom. Use patience though, because it will come with time and practice. You need to get used to what their signals are and get the door opened before they go through all of their signals and end up with a puddle on the floor. Beginner Puppy Care Tips

Provide Toys and Activities

What do your kids do when they get bored? They might get in trouble, pick on their sibling or get in to your hair. What do you provide in order to keep this from happening? Toys. Activities. Things to do to keep them from getting bored. The same goes for your puppy. If you don’t want them to chew on shoes or toes, provide them with things they can chew on. It is a given that a dog will chew on things. It is in their nature and you can’t fight nature. SO provide them with bones, balls and toys that are safe for them to chew. Their teeth are developing – just like a child’s – so they need something to gnaw on. Take your dog outside and give them regular exercise and room to run. If you don’t have a big yard, use a leash and go for a walk to the park where they can run.
