Congratulations, you have made the fantastic decision of welcoming humankind’s best friend into your home.
We understand how much of a beautiful and fantastic experience raising a puppy can be, and we are also aware that the first few years of a dog’s life are among the most important.
The actions you take during the first few years of your dogs’ life will determine how they turn out in the future.
It is with this thought in mind, we decided to create this piece to contribute our suggestions to help you and your puppy.
Many dog owners fail to start training and preparing their pups early. How we interact with our pups plays a considerable role in how they turn out in the future. The last thing we want is to raise unhealthy and unprepared dogs.
Nutrition is Key
The fact that dogs have specific nutritional needs should not come as a surprise to most of us. You may be surprised by how quickly your dogs’ nutritional needs evolve and change.
In terms of nutrition, we always urge dog parents to seek professional help and get tips on adequately catering to our puppies’ nutritional needs.
Whether you are a first-time or seasoned dog owner, helping your dog develop healthy habits is easier said than done.
Like human children, puppies take cues from their environment and emulate what they see going on around them. That is why we believe that healthy habits are the key to a healthy puppy.
We cannot overstate how vital exercising is in a dog’s life. If you do not help your dog exercise, you are setting them up for failure.
Admittedly, puppies need less exercise when compared to adults. However, we still believe that it is essential to start them off right by exercising with them and increasing frequency and intensity with time.
Feed Around Dietary Restrictions
Many dogs also have dietary restrictions. It is best to feed them easy-to-digest foods. In some cases you may need to feed your dog grain-free dog food if they have sensitive dietary needs.
Puppies have a list of compulsory vaccines that they must get at specific times during their development.
Failure to vaccinate your puppies properly can spell health troubles for them and those around them.
The nature and intensity of vaccines your dog needs to get will depend on your dog’s risk level because some dogs are more at risk than others.
All dogs need to be appropriately groomed, but some dogs need more grooming attention than others.
For example, dogs with a considerable amount of hair usually need frequent grooming visits. Ideally, it is best to start grooming your dogs at approximately 12 weeks.
Visits to the Vet
One of the best and most rewarding investments you can make for your dog is medical care. That is why scheduled visits to the vet are a must to keep your dog healthy.
Additionally, please pay attention to your dogs’ dental care as their teeth and gums play an essential role in your puppy’s general health and well-being.
Your Time and Attention
One of the best gifts you can give your dog is the gift of your presence and attention. Like we stated earlier, the first few months of your dog’s life play a significant role in how they develop into adults.
Consider blessing your puppy with as much of your attention as possible. Please believe us when we say that both you and your dog will be better off for it.
