As a new pet parent, it is confusing to decide how to raise and train your pup and the most challenging bit is making the best decisions among so much overwhelming information. Your cute little ball of fur needs guidance and it's not difficult to properly raise and train your new buddy into a mature, well-behaved adult dog and a valued member of your family.
Do you have the time to raise a healthy puppy?
Are you ready to make a commitment to their complete nutrition and health?
Ask the above two questions to your family members as well.
Do you have enough time to dedicate to a dog?
Regular exercise is very important for a puppy. It's the best way to keep your pup calm and at the same time, it allows you to bond with your dog. You don't want a puppy bounding all around the house because it doesn't get enough exercise. Lack of exercise could lead to aggression later in the dog's life and it may take out its frustration in negative ways like destroying household items. A bored dog can be a destructive dog and pick up bad habits very easily.
Form a strong bond of love and affection with your dog. Your bond will strengthen the relationship and it will help your puppy or dog be happier and balanced.
They are part of the “pack” in your puppy’s mind. Make sure that all members of the family interact with the pup in some way or the other. You could even have a set time every day when the whole family participates in interacting or playing with the pup.
Have fun with your pup. Your dog won't be a puppy forever, so make it worth a while and make the most of it!
