Yay! It's the new year! Many people have their new year resolutions outlined and are already putting them into effect. For some, one of these resolutions is to get a new fur baby at the beginning of the year. Just like any other parenting, puppy parenting can be somewhat overwhelming but fun overall. There are a lot of things for both of you to learn and you have to get started on your part before bringing your cuddly fur baby home.
Here are a few things to note when getting a new puppy:
Puppies are fun to be with however, they require a lot of care and attention in their first few months. You'll have to feed Max two to three times daily. In addition, you would have to take him on walks and get him socialized later on. You have to factor all of these into your schedule. This phase may be tasking, but it's definitely rewarding.
The first few months of Max's life are the perfect time to bond with him and get to know him. There's a lot that you can learn about him just by spending time with him. You can learn about your playful puppy's personality, temperament, tastes, and intelligence. Everyone loves puppy breath and you'll definitely be getting a lot of that in your face along with licks of gratitude.
It is essential to start training your dog early. At this young age, Max is ready to learn. All he's waiting for is for you to work with him as soon as you can. Training provides tremendous benefits to continued good behavior both inside your home and in public. You can teach your Max basic obedience and then step up to potty training, chew training, and crate training.
